One of the reasons I love doing custom work is 1. No two pieces are the same. 2. I can infuse my love into a special piece of jewelry that will resonate with the personality of the woman wearing it.

In this case, I knew the design had to be versatile as I didn't have the exact wrist size for the young lady. I also knew it needed to be sparkly and her dress was teal. With those parameters, I set out to create something unique that would let this young woman feel like a princess even just for a night!
For this set, my inspiration was the Shamballa beads from Cousin. They are a bright pop of color with lots of sparkle. I incorporated crystals in a variety of shapes all designed to capture light differently. Then added some seed beads to infuse that rich teal color throughout the bracelet.
Of course, one cannot have just a bracelet, but we needed matching earring to complete the beautiful ensemble. I mirrored the crystals I used and included some adorable, flower earrings and channel set crystal also from Cousin.
The look turned out perfectly as a set of prom jewelry! It would also have looked divine for bridesmaids in a wedding where the bride desires all her attending ladies to have matching jewelry.
