My purchases from Etsy seller AmberEnvelope

I wanted to share what I received in the mail today - my Etsy purchases from a fabulous seller called AmberEnvelope. I ordered these Trinity Brass Fancy Fleur Drops, Trinity Brass Mara Connector and these Trinity Brass Fold Over Bails.

I need these charms to make silver necklaces similar to this Fall inspired leaf lariat in gold for my current Bridal customer JoAnn. A couple of gemstones and a small pretty charm attached to a delicate .925 Sterling Silver Chain to make dainty lariats.

The quality of these charms are fantastic. Unlike many charms that I received from other sellers, these charms are scratchless and brand new! They must have been stored very well. The charms were very carefully packed in clear cello pouches and bubblewrap and arrived in pristine condition. It also included a pretty hand written note. Amber was very generous to send lots of freebies! I received is Trinity Brass Floral Swag Connector, the Trinity Brass Junia Y Connector and these gorgeous Trinity Brass Leaf Charms.

Amber gave me spectacular customer service and very prompt shipping. I ordered on the 18th, Sunday and it arrived today, the 25th, also a Sunday! I am very happy to have discovered yet another fantastic seller on Etsy.

So I was thrilled to receive these lovely pictures from another Bridal Customer of mine: Jessica. I made her necklace, bracelet and earrings using Swarovski pearls, rhinestone components and .925 Sterling Silver. Enjoy!

Do you remember the Kaleidoscope of Colors Giveaway by Kasia Blue?

Thank you so much Kasia!!


I finally got around to uploading the wedding pics that I received from my beautiful bridal customer Tabatha! Isn't she the most gorgeous of brides?

I made her bridal jewelry, jewelry for the mother for the bride and also for her bridesmaids. Her colors were chocolate and sage green. For the bridesmaids, I used white Coin pearls, a green gemstone called prehnite and a chocolate colored gemstone called smoky quartz to make necklaces and earrings for her bridesmaids. I also used a fancy sterling silver "ball and chain" chain for the necklaces.

For the bride and her lovely mom, I used Swarovski pearls as the primary component along with a hand-set rhinestone filigree part. I used pale cream pearls for the bride and pale mocha for the mother of the bride.

I had a fantastic time making this jewelry! I hope that you like them too! A million thanks to the generous bride for permission to use these pictures! Thank you Tabatha!
