I love making custom jewelry. When it's custom bridal jewelry, that makes the piece much more special, because a bride (or groom) allowed me to share in an important time in their life. This time it was an even greater pleasure because the bride is my soon-to-be sister-in-law Jessica. We took our inspiration from Audrey Hepburn's classic style.

I stumbled upon the picture above during a Google search. Jessica previously told me her personal style was similar to Audrey Hepburn. She shared the outfits she planned to wear to her bridal shower and rehearsal dinner.
Jessica wore a white a-line dress with similar lines[/caption] I used 18 guage dead soft round sterling silver wire to create the Hepburn inspired earrings but put the Ayana Glaze spin on it. Faceted crystal quartz was wrapped into the design - adding the flair of elegance.

Jessica is all smiles in her Audrey Hepburn-inspired earrings.
I enjoyed bringing this bridal design to life. Now on to an inspired pin for her wedding bouquet. Stay tuned! I'll post that soon. What do you think of my spin on this icon's jewelry style?
