"Love Gives Us a Fairytale"

The Oriole weds his mottled mate
The Lily weds the bee;
Heaven's marriage ring is round the earth,

Let me bind thee?
~Author Unknown~

This Sunday was the wedding day of my beautiful friend, Haleema.  She graciously asked me to create the jewelry for her bridal party.  I love making jewelry, but I especially enjoy making jewelry for friends, and for such special occasions.  Haleema's floral choices were amazing, and provided me with a myriad of choices for the final jewelry presentation packaging.  

Those of you who have purchased custom projects from me in the past know that the "art of presentation" is just as important to me as the gift inside of the "box".... I say box, however, there are many ways to package a special gift.  I challenge you to find specials ways to make a special present even more magnificent and unique.  Wrap it in handmade paper, seal it with old fashioned wax; use vintage fabric and tie it with fancy ribbon.  PLAY with presentation.  You'll be surprised at how many ideas you can manifest.  


Once in awhile, 


Right in the middle of an ordinary life, 



Love gives us a fairy tale.

Congratulations to Haleema and Brendan Sullivan!  
May you enjoy the fairy tale, now and forever!
