my custom wedding earrings

Note: H-town wants to be surprised by my whole get-up, so I'm not posting pics of the earrings here, but there is a link below.

The search for my earrings turned out to be longer and harder than the search for the dress(es) or the shoes. I knew I wanted cast silver to complement my Digby & Iona engagement ring (though I was temporarily sidetracked by a pair of fuchsia rhinestones that went with the wrong dress). But everything I found was too fussy or too punk rock or not punk rock enough.

Then I saw a one-of-a-kind pair on Laurie Brown's Flickr and I just knew. She and I wrote back and forth and she created this pair for me.

I cannot express the sheer joy I felt when I took them out of their little wooden box and tried them on.


  1. They're amazing, I love them. I love her work, it's beautiful. I especially adore the seahorse and wishbone necklaces.

    What doe your engagement ring look like? And your wedding ring for that matter?

  2. How unique! I love custom jewelry for a special occasion... my MOH is a jeweler ( and she and my fiancee worked on my engagement ring together (well, she did the actual making). It makes me so happy every time I look at it. :)

  3. You are the funkiest bride I know- Loooove them!

  4. They are BEAUTIFUL! I love the idea of thorns on your wedding day. So delicate...
