The wedding gift was opened… shall we?

IMG_2059Y’all remember the box right?

IMG_2081And the custom card?IMG_2080The keepsake box was decadently lined wth satin and crumpled tissue.  5689_225789180623_757255623_8229635_4669694_nEach bead came with its own organza storage bag…IMG_2063Both were wired as pendants with antiqued sterling silver findings… IMG_2070…the goddess decorated with freshwater pearls and the god with (the much more macho) hematite.  IMG_2067The pearls, hematite and glass used for their wings and armour are all beautifully irridescent – i wish it showed better in the photos… 5689_225789240623_757255623_8229639_3887945_nI also added removable antiqued chains to bind them together… 5689_225815765623_757255623_8230182_7566506_nIsn’t this a lovely picture?  This one too…IMG_2075And of course, most importantly… their reaction:

“Hi Evelyn, they were speechless and like WOW. They loved the gift.  They even thanked me 2 days later for such a unique gift, Marilyne noted that she loves and collects boxes so the packaging was great and the small skull on it Marilyne noticed right away. They said it was the the most unique thing they had ever seen. I think they were blown away by it and Shawn said, when you said you got crafted beads done, I just thought they would be traditional, this is WOW…WOW!”IMG_2042This was hands down one of the most enjoyable custom orders i have ever worked on – i had SO much fun both researching Goth culture and designing the beads and getting the packaging made for the final order.  

Thanks for your patience everyone, and I hope you all enjoyed this little adventure as much as I did.
