Wedding Bling

So my friend Kim asked me if I might be interested in making some jewelry for one of her friend's that is getting married this year. I instantly thought of my Bliss Series as I just think they are the cat's meow. But she's looking for a bracelet and earrings, so my mind starting working.

I created this wedding version of the spiral weave using Swarovski AB Pink Alabaster and White Opal 4mm bicones and 4mm pearls.

And tonight I took a class at Need 2 Bead, which just lent itself to a wedding theme. It's a Basket Weave weave using 4mm Czech fire polished glass beads and seed beads. I'm thinking of making it a wider bracelet by doubling the width. There was an example at the store and it is just stunning!

Which is your favorite? Do you think a wider basket weave would look more elegant for a wedding? Let me know!

Hmmmm...both very pretty. But I'm drawn to the spiral weave one.

I really like the wider one but of course we know every bride has her own preference!
