Something Old, Something New...

So when I got married my "something blue" was an anklet that I made myself. I found sterling silver links that were in the shape of an infinity symbol and combined those with Swarovski crystals… it was real nice…. Anyways…. a friend of mine from highschool is getting married in a few weeks and unfortunately I’m unable to go to the wedding (it’s in Colorado and our travel budget was eaten by the patio) so I wanted to do something nice for her… I dusted off my jewelry making supplies and got to work on another "something blue" anklet.

While I was working on it I remembered that her beautiful, handmade, invitations had beads on that were the exact color of the crystals that I had!

So basically I turned this:


Into this:

I hope she likes it (and doesn’t mind that I took apart her invitation!)
