Wedding Time Beading

WEDDING at Olbrich Gardens

Recently, my son got married. It was really a nice wedding. Such wonderful weather, and the gardens were in full bloom. Folks from Arizona, Texas, Georgia, New York, even Dubai came to see my baby tie the knot.

Before the wedding I had lots of fun making necklaces for the bridesmaids, and his wife also gave me some vintage faux pearls that her grandmother used to wear and asked me to make her a bridal necklace.

 Don’t they look pretty? Even Daniel wore a brand new hat!

In a previous post I put up some pictures some gemstone necklaces that I made using stones that Daniel and Amanda brought back for me from their honeymoon. Among those stones were some un-drilled Peridot stone chips. I used them in little glass vials to make these pendant necklaces

I also strung up a couple of electroplated leaves today as well!
