Bridesmaid Jewelry - Redo

About this design:

My niece-in-law's sister is getting married next week. My niece asked me to help her redo the jewelry that her sister bought for the bridesmaids. This is what I came up with. We really just added crystal rondelles to break up the metal colors, but it made a pretty big difference.

The first picture is the final result, the second is what we started with, and the third is before/after next to each other. We also put the bracelets on memory wire, to fit any size wrist.

    Thank you so much. :) Now, I just need my niece-in-law to not have anyone get hurt and need a ride in her ambulance long enough to help me get an idea of what the bride wants for her jewelry! We’re supposed to leave for the wedding on Friday! Totally not stressing, see? Not stressed. Woo-sah…

    Wow – the set was beautiful to start with, but I really love the addition of the crystals! It softened the metallic look, and is really going to shimmer on the bridesmaids!

    Have a great time at the wedding, and de-stress! OK now, take a deep breath….let it out slowly….feel better?
