Earlier this year, while I was purging stuff in preparation for our move to the house in Hooterville, I mentioned in this post how I had made the decision to part with the wedding gown I wore when I married my hubby in 1972.
Before I let the dress go though, I cut off a small piece of lace and asked Joy of Cupid’s Charm to incorporate it into a special keepsake. Joy turns vintage jewelry, broken china, old silver spoons, vintage photos, papers, lace, crystals, pearls and sterling beads into the most beautiful and romantic pieces of jewelry you have ever seen.
When Joy was done working her creative magic, the charm bracelet below was the result.
In addition to Swarovski crystals, pearls and sterling beads, she combined 3 heart-shaped charms made with broken china pieces and 4 charms containing lace from my wedding dress.
Let me tell you, the bracelet is absolutely exquisite in person! I am sure this gorgeous bracelet is destined to become a family heirloom.
Originally, I had planned to gift my daughter with this special bracelet on her 30th birthday next June. However, I decided to give it to her early so she could wear it to the special premiere event she attended last week in California.
If you pop over to Joy’s on-line shop to browse, don’t blame me if you want one of everything! :)
