Wedding memento commission

A bit ago I was contacted by a lovely lady through Folksy, who had seen my resin jewellery there. She asked me if I could put bits of her wedding dress into resin as a memento and so she could "wear her dress again".

After a couple of messages back and forth we arranged for me to make her two pendants and two brooches containing pieces of her silk dress, pearly beads and snippets of her veil with sterling silver findings. She also wanted me to encase a tiny jay feather in a pendant for her husband.

Here's what I made for her. I'm happy to report that she liked them!!






I keep meaning to make my own bridal mementos! Really should get on and do that. I may offer it as a custom listing. What do you think?

I really like the necklaces! They are stunning and I think a lot of brides would rather like this idea.

I especially love the Jay pendant!

I have done some wedding dress jewellery before- my biggest problem was the satin going see-through in the resin. In the end I had to laminate it before embedding (of course it got jammed in the laminator too)....
