New Bridal Designs for Spring/Summer 2012

Edera Jewelry Spring Summer 2012 Bridal Collection

I wanted to share some of the first designs from my Spring/Summer 2012 Collection, which is now available in my online boutique! This season I'm exploring lots of new techniques and materials, including creating handmade beads, weaving intricate needle lace nettings, making lace-embellished ear wires, and incorporating organic keishi pearls and luscious silk ribbons...

{ Perla Earrings | Silver Lace Bridal Posts with Pearls and Vintage Rhinestones }
{Celestina Bracelet | Handmade Taupe Silk and Silver Lace Bridal Bracelet with Pearls }
{Celestina Earrings | Taupe Silk and Silver Lace Wedding Earrings with Pearls }
With each collection I design, I create an inspiration narrative, a mood board of colors and textures that inspire me. These pieces were influenced by my love of the Art Nouveau movement and Japanese textiles, as well as the art of passementerie, or creating intricate tassels and trims. The ethereal pastel colors are perfect for spring and summer weddings...

Announcing! graphic

I'm so excited to announce the launch of my new website,! I've been working on it steadily over the past few months so it feels wonderful to finally share the results.

Some of the features include a Portfolio of past and present designs, detailed information on requesting a Custom Order, a Client Gallery, an in-depth About page, and an Online Shop. My online shop currently has a selection of new designs from my Spring/Summer 2012 Bridal Collection, with more to be added soon. I've also integrated many of the pages into my blog, so you can click onto them from the navigation bar at the top of this site. I'd love to hear what you think!

Happy Spring--
