Wedding jewels

A few pics I snapped when I was in Birmingham of Abilena Studio's latest creations. The fabulous Kelly and Katie did a suite of custom pieces for a summer wedding--coin pearls for the bride, and four coordinating and complimentary earring designs for the bridesmaids. All of their soldering and beading is just exquisite!

Abilena is really starting to carve out a niche for custom wedding jewelry. I love the collections I've seen--each has several pieces that wonderfully complement each other, yet reflect the taste and personality of each person who will be wearing them. Abilena can make pieces for whole wedding party, so that even the mothers and flower girls will have something that coordinates. Katie and Kelly will meet with you in person if you are in the Birmingham area, or spend a time working with you via phone or email if you are out of the area, to learn about your vision for the day and the personalities of all of the people that will be helping you celebrate. And the fun part about this is that they are so fun to work with!

After receiving MY custom earings as Katie's bridesmaid a month ago, I put in a life-time wishlist for anything by Abilena. Steve knows not to get creative now, but to just leave it to the girls. Can't wait to see what the next holiday turns up!

And one more thing...check out Abilena's new blog! They've been posting pictures of custom work and some great shots from a recent magazine shoot!
