Last week, I had an amazing opportunity to attend the private launch party for Dr. Myla Bennett's Ederra Bella Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa. [caption id="attachment_2401" align="aligncenter" width="640"]Dr. Myla and I at her #prettyparty Dr. Myla and I at the #prettyparty launch for Ederra Bella Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa[/caption] I had an amazing time networking, meeting and taking photos with celebrities and meeting the woman of the hour Dr. Myla. She is such a beautiful spirit with an energy that drives you to want to be and do better. It was my pleasure to provide custom jewelry for the hosts of her #prettyparty. IMG_20160223_201039 Before I get into what I wore, I want to talk about the hostesses, what I made for each one and why I chose to go in the direction I did. First up, is Bo Talley, CEO of Blaq Pearl Entertainment and wife of WNBA Coach Frew Williams.  One thing that stood out when I did my research into her style were her hoop earrings. I found a number of images on Google and she had these bold hoops on. I couldn't help but want to contribute one of my custom jewelry designs to her jewelry stash.

Collection. Alaja-pendant-necklace For Real Housewives of Atlanta star and former Ms. Universe Kenya Moore, I noticed she has a more classic style. I was struck by the long necklaces worn in some of her pictures. So, I decided to make her a long necklace about 26 inches with a large amethyst stone combines with rock crystal and moonstone as well as round amethyst beads  placed sporadically throughout a 14kt gold-filled chain. Since her favorite color is pink, I opted pull a pair of my Calista Earrings in pink and add that to her jewelry swag. calista-petal-drop-earrings-pink-ayana-glaze - Copy The third host was Marlo Hampton fashionista creator of Marlo's Closet and RHOA guest star. Marlo's style is definitely couture, so I knew I could have fun making just about anything I wanted to. But, it couldn't be plain. I thought of one stone "fire agate" to match her spirit. I combined wire, jade, onyx and red crystals with wire and chain. This is the result.   IMG_20160226_164951   What do you think?   I pulled a very bold, very couture tribal necklace from my one-of-a-kind collection. It has a large agate stone and picture jasper, lava rock and tube beads wrapped around leather with brass. IMG_20160226_163841 I couldn't leave Dr. Myla out. I made her a custom necklace and bracelet set in her favorite color turquoise. I added black, silver and crystal accents. IMG_20160226_161819 All the jewelry was present nicely in embroidered jewelry pouches handmade by me. I outsourced the mbroidery. And finally, here is what I wore to the #prettyparty. I royal blue and brocade dress custom made for me by Ms. Dana Bullock of Dana Lynn Couture. I love, love, love my dress. I was glammed up by my make-up expert, fitness trainer sister #Tai Clark of AGet_trained_by_Tai on Instagram and Periscope. Well, that's the recap. Hope you enjoyed it.
