{Up Close: ShadowBirds}

These accessories were created for bridesmaids' jewelry 
as a gift from the bride to her wedding party ladies 
for the wedding day and beyond.

The ShadowBird Earrings have surpassed my expectations 
as I have seen these earrings become cherished,
everyday, earrings for the bridesmaids.
And I've already had orders for more to give as gifts!

 {I have a few sets of these earrings for purchase for $16, bracelets $8}

{ShadowBirds and A Gypsy}

 {The title of this post refers to accessories, not ladies!}

So, last Christmas I made a pair of earrings for my sweet friend, Grace. Little did I know that the following summer I would make 9 more pairs of earrings and 20 bracelets for her bridesmaids and Grace and then create Grace's bridal earrings!

It was so much fun!  Here we are all decked out in Whimsy Lilac Accessories!

Grace let her bridesmaids pick out their own "black strappy" shoes, and how to wear their hair if at least part of if was "up" and she let them choose if they wanted to wear one or both of the bracelets. It made for group of stylish and coordinated,
yet personalized, bridesmaids!

The Gypsy Bracelet (in black, white, and pink) is named such because each bracelet is unique and has a tiny dangle. The one featured here was made to coordinate with Grace's wedding color pallet.

The ShadowBird Earrings are lightweight fishook teardrop earrings and the ShadowBird Bracelet matches them perfectly. Both bracelets are stretchy!

Stay tuned for {A Closer Look} at the ShadowBird Earrings!

My first accessory post was on these bridal earrings I designed for my friend Gracie
 She had a wonderful wedding this past summer and she was a beautiful bride! She's a wonderful model, but I thought these earrings needed a closer look!

{Whimsy Wisteria}

I absolutely love wisteria!
~ It's whimsical with lots of beautiful shades of purple ~

These pictures were taken last spring on the lovely land where my hubby grew up.
~ Pretty whimsical, if you ask me! ~

Well, my Whimsies (yes, that's what I've deemed the Whimsy Lilac followers!) 
it's been too long since my last post!  
I'm currently working on updating the blog and have a batch of posts in the works... 
but they have been held up because my camera is broken andI'm at the mercy of friends letting me borrow high-quality cameras to take pictures of my latest creations!

Look for new accessory posts this weekend!
