New! Bridal Hair Combs

I recently completed a custom order for a bride and her bridesmaids, who was absolutely wonderful to work with. She insisted I make a bridal hair comb to complement the freshwater pearl and crystal chandelier earrings I had made for her. So, I decided to give it a go! Here is the design she decided on:

She wanted a simple design that didn't look too much like a tiara. I can't wait to see her wedding photos! This past week, I also made one for my future sister-in-law, that has more of a "tiara" look to it:

My goal is to have a number of different designs created and on my website, by the beginning of November. In the meantime, if you need one custom made, just let me know!

Recent Custom Bridal Designs

I have recently been working on a number of custom bridal designs, that I wanted to highlight. The earrings shown below are a new luxurious bridal chandelier design which is created with Swarovski crystals and freshwaters pearls:

I created a beautiful beaded bracelet to coordinate with the earrings, designed with lots of freshwater pearl and crystal clusters between larger crystal beads.

Next, I'll cover my foray into the world of beaded bridal combs!

Myra Elizabeth Jewelry Featured in "Bead Trends" Magazine

We are so excited to have many of our jewelry designs featured in the current issue of "Bead Trends" magazine. Here are a few of my favorites:

Teal Crystal Earrings with Hammered Rings

I just love these earrings! A cascade of Swarovski crystals in shades of brown, champagne, olive green and teal accent gold-filled hammered rings and rich teal blue graphic crystals.

Champagne Crystal Cluster Necklace

Another crystal design, this necklace begins with beautiful golden shadow (champagne) briolettes. Clusters of colorful crystal bicones, which include sapphire blue, olive green, topaz and amethyst, provide a wonderful "WOW" factor.

Smoky Quartz and Garnet Set

Perfect to accent your fall wardrobe, the necklace features a waterfall of garnet and smoky quartz briolettes accented with fancy gold vermeil beads. The bracelet is an elegant beaded creation made up of lots of yummy gemstones, and the earrings feature a cascade of gems and gold vermeil beads.

Designs are currently available at both Myra Elizabeth Jewelry Designs and my Myra Elizabeth boutique on Etsy.
