I am lucky to have a cousin who is the “queen of crafts”.  Ask her how to do anything creative, and she will most likely know.  Well I went to her with the idea of creating custom accessories for my bridesmaids.  I didn’t want them all to wear the exact same thing, but I did want it all to coordinate in one way or another. And because their dresses are very simple….I wanted to make more of a statement in jewelry.  I was inspired by the work of Marquis & Camus, a collection of jewelry that offers a truly unique look into the future of remixed couture.  I am SO IN LOVE with all of it!  In a dream world, i would have bought each of my bridesmaids a Marquis & Camus original…..but I decided to get crafty instead.

My cousin and I went out and bought a handful of odds and ends: charms, pearls, chains, elastic, feathers and flowers…….as well as a few “base necklaces” from forever 21.  (Yes, I admit it)  She hand made silk roses and coffee stained tattered tool to add as needed. After much thought on what to create with all this “goodness”, we decided on 3 necklaces, 2 bracelets, and two flower hairpieces.  A little something different for each girl.

Here is the outcome!
