Blue.....






Inspired by my super fun plans for tonight... Blue Man Group! Going to see the show in Denver. I have a feeling it will be a lot different from the first time. I saw it in the tiny Astor Place Theater in NYC when I was 17. Boy that was a long time ago.

Luxury Handmade Garters: An Interview with Natalie Briggs


This week's interview features Natalie Briggs. Natalie is from Perth, Western Australia.

Tell us a little about yourself.
I live on the west coast of Australia with my husband. I recently got married in March 2010 and love looking and bridal magazines (still). I love arts and crafts and makeing as much of the things around my home my self.

What special things do you create for weddings?
I specialise in making handmade bridal garter sets that are modern, sexy with a vintage twist. I want to revive the 'bridal garter' with more fun and modern designs using the best materials in the most interesting way.

Who or what sparked your interest in making wedding-related items?
During planning my own wedding, i was disappointed in the lack of variety of bridal garters in the bridal stores. Many were very expensive, looked very out dated and cheaply made. So i thought i can do this better!

What is a little known fact, or something unique about your work that is interesting?
I like to use items nad materials in an interesting way, either layed differently, a bow slightly on its side. Little differnces from the 'norm' make for very interesting pieces.
If you are married, what’s the one thing you wish you had for your wedding that you didn’t?
Most of my wedding was pretty much perfect, i wish i did have a more interesting bouquet. I made my own out of silk flowers but im no florist, they looked great but a bit 'normal' to what i have now seen on other out there after my wedding.

What is your favorite wedding song?
I dont really have a favourite wedding song as my music choices a little differnt from most. But i think the wedding march is a timeless classic which will be used for years to come.

What trends do you see happening in your specialty at the moment?
Trends in garters i see happening at the moment is moving away from too much lace and garters looking more like pieces of jewellery rather than lingerie, which is lovely!

What is your favorite part of the wedding journey?
I love the planning of a wedding, the very first stages- choosing a colour theme, style to base the whole event on. This is normally the hardest bit, theres so many options out there.

What advice can you share for all the brides getting married this year?
Make sure you get references for your hair and make up ladies. I had trials before and they were great, but on the wedding day they lost the phots they took from the trial, and even though i explained to them how my hair and make up was done, they did it completely differently and didnt really care.

What is your perfect honeymoon spot?
We went to hawaii for our honeymoon, its such a peaceful layed back part of the world to relax after the stress of a wedding.

If you could pick anyone famous that would purchase your items for their wedding, who would they be?
Anyone really, a classy celebraty thougth!

If you could choose 1 item from your shop that you wish every bride could have, what would it be?
Anyone really, a classy celebraty thougth!

If you could choose 1 item from your shop that you wish every bride could have, what would it be?
It would be my Sexy Ivory Pearl Black Lace Garter Set, its my most popular line and all of my brides love it.

What are some of your favorite shops on Etsy, wedding or otherwise?
Bellina Bridal has the most beautiful wedding dresses.

Do you have a website, blog, where we can read more about you and your work?
I have a blog which im currently working on http://www.nataliebriggs.blogspot.com/ where i talking about ideas for brides and updates on new garters and competitions.

Vintage French beading with a modern touch: An interview with Bead Flora Jewels

This week's interview features Fen Li of Bead Flora Jewels.  Fen is located in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Tell us a little about yourself.
I discovered the art of French Beaded flowers about 8 years ago and have been in love ever since.... Hi, My name is Fen and I'm a bead-a-holic.  I have an OCD personality. If I like something, I go all out! I don't mess around ;) I do have a degree in graphic communications but obviously it wasn't my calling. While I was supposed to be doing my homework in college, I beaded roses instead.

What special things do you create for weddings?
My beaded flower bouquets are the stars of my etsy shop. Like any good marketer, I also create beaded hair accessories, clutches, rings, etc at lower points.

Who or what sparked your interest in making wedding-related items?
Me, myself, and I! :) For my wedding, I designed my bridal bouquet and it has gone off from there. My parents saw how I was beading night and day and working full time and nagged me endlessly to just buy fresh flowers instead. I was tempted at times because I was just running ragged from planning my wedding, working full time, and beading my bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, 10 beaded centerpieces... oh my, just writing all of that is bringing back all the stress. But I told them, no. I'm known for my beaded flowers so how can I abandon who I am when it comes to the most important day of my life.

What is a little known fact, or something unique about your work that is interesting?
Some of my work aren't really "French." I've adapted some of the techniques so it's not entirely French in its purest form.

If you are married, what’s the one thing you wish you had for your wedding that you didn’t?
I wish I made beaded hair accessories when I had my wedding.

What is your favorite wedding song?
Teresa Teng - The Moon Represent my Heart. I walked down the aisle to the instrumental version.

What trends do you see happening in your specialty at the moment?
Tiffany blue is hot right now.

What is your favorite part of the wedding journey?
My favorite part is the end. Yeah, seriously. I was so stressed out planning, I couldn't wait until it was over. The day was beautiful and I have many happy momentos.

What advice can you share for all the brides getting married this year?
My advice to brides...take it easy and enjoy the moment. It's just one day and all you have will be memories. It doesn't help to get stressed out...or fight with your parents about whose wedding it is. It's your day. period.

What is your perfect honeymoon spot?
I didn't go on a honeymoon. I went to work the next day... long story. :)

If you could pick anyone famous that would purchase your items for their wedding, who would they be?
I think Angelina Jolie will look fabulous with my Crimson Passion bouquet...she's already married, right? Maybe the next wedding... ;) just kidding.

If you could choose 1 item from your shop that you wish every bride could have, what would it be?
Any bride would need to dress up their tootsies with some fabulous beaded shoe clips like these blooooming amber silver shoe clips:

 
 
 
 
 
What are some of your favorite shops on Etsy, wedding or otherwise?
There are so many. Wedding related shops

http://norakaren.etsy.com/ - Nora creates the most beautiful painted peacock shoes. I have a pair and wear it to the office sometimes and makes the day feel more festive.
http://chloeandmaddie.com/ - Kim makes the most beautiful hair pieces..wedding and otherwise.

Custom Bridal Jewelry: An interview with Something Jeweled

This weeks interview features Sarah from Something Jeweled.  Sarah is located in Ottawa, Canada.

Tell us a little about yourself.
Hi, my name is Sarah, and I'm the sole designer behind Something Jeweled. I'm 23, from Ottawa, Canada, and I have a passion for all things beautiful and artistic! In conjunction with my etsy shop, I also work as one of the city's top bridal makeup artists (sarahwalshmakeup.com). I started my two businesses while in university. Now that I'm finished school, this is what I do full-time, and I absolutely LOVE it!

What special things do you create for weddings?
I create custom wedding jewelry for the bride and bridesmaids. My pieces are designed with freshwater pearls, Austrian crystal, and precious metals. I work exclusively with CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements.

Who or what sparked your interest in making wedding-related items?
From a young age, I've always designed jewelry as a hobby. I ALWAYS wear my own creations (usually my favorite coin pearl earrings and pendant). While working as a bridal makeup artist, my clients would always ask me where I got my jewelry! To their surprise, after hearing that I made it myself, they would always ask me to design something for them. A few years later, here I am with a full collection of designs, selling on Etsy!

What is a little known fact, or something unique about your work that is interesting?
I guess what makes my work unique is that every piece in my collection reflects my personal style. My rule of thumb is, "...if I wouldn't wear this on my wedding day, than it's not good enough to sell". I have very high standards in terms of design, wear-ability, and quality.

If you are married, what’s the one thing you wish you had for your wedding that you didn’t?
Not married yet! Still looking for prince charming!

What is your favorite wedding song?
I don't even know if this is a real song, but it's from the old tv show 'Full House' (haha!). The song Uncle Jesse sings to Becky at their wedding. It's called 'Forever'. LOVE it!

What trends do you see happening in your specialty at the moment?
Long, glamorous earrings, and a matching bracelet! A lot of brides prefer a bare neck.

What is your favorite part of the wedding journey?
Getting excited with brides about their wedding! I'm such a romantic girlie girl at heart! I like hearing about all the wedding details!

What advice can you share for all the brides getting married this year?
Don't over-plan. Things never run on schedule, there are always little bumps along the way. Relax, enjoy, and go with the flow!

What is your perfect honeymoon spot?
Niagara Falls

If you could pick anyone famous that would purchase your items for their wedding, who would they
be?
Hmmm, well I don't really have any aspirations to design for anyone famous. I love designing symbolic and meaningful pieces for everyday women. It's the same when I do makeup, I would much rather work with a real woman over a model. I don't need to put a celebrity's face on my work to make it worth something.

If you could choose 1 item from your shop that you wish every bride could have, what would it be?
"I think every bride should be dripping in crystal!

These earrings are my absolute favorite:

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
What are some of your favorite shops on Etsy, wedding or otherwise?
I admire these shops SO much: www.etsy.com/shop/sarahseven  www.etsy.com/shop/LoBoheme
