Simply Elegant Vintage Inspired Earrings

I was asked by a friend if I could make her a pair of earrings to go with a dress for an upcoming wedding.  But of course I can!  What was she looking for?  She wasn't sure, but she said I needed to see the dress first.

Since she works with Chris, she brought her dress into work (and I'm sure he looked adorable carrying out a dress bag with a gown in it that evening.)  Great mental photo...

The dress is cocktail length, rich chocolate brown with small straps that cross in the back.  Along the bust is some decorative beadwork that makes a necklace unnecessary.  So earrings are the perfect accessory to compliment it.

I opted to go with a vintage copper style.  Soft and romantic, light-weight and definitely able to be worn with so many outfits.  Accented with Swarovski Lt. Colarado Topaz crystals and Czech fire-polished crystal rounds, there's a little sparkle with a touch of class!

Hope you have a terrific weekend!
