All that Glitters

My craving for cooler weather has led me to choose some lovely (and frosty) crystal pieces this week!

This Raindrops Bracelet (ah rain, please come soon!) by He Knows My Name is exactly what I needed to escape the harsh August sun and remember cooler times. So lovely and glamorous!

I am completely enamored with this Rhinestone Headband/Sash by Snow White Studio. Fashion meets function with this gorgeous duel usage accessory. It reminds me of a cold snow covered morning in the mountains...divine!

This Bridal Feather Fascinator looks soft as a pillow and glitters like ice. Bridal Couture brings the temperature down a bit with this lovely hair accessory!

I've offered my own spin on the icy glamor of crystal with my Gatsby Bridal Fascinator, new from Eternal Eden. This was a fun foray into sparkle and shine, and definitely reflects my growing weariness of the Southern heat!

Fall, my dearest Autumn, you are sorely missed. Come quickly!

Winery Wedding

My wonderful husband and I were married at a winery almost 2 years ago. As the fall season approaches I can't help but reminisce about our perfect day.

My only regret is that I didn't know about Etsy when I was planning it! If I'd had even an inkling of the gorgeously innovative items to be found there I would have been in heaven. So I've decided to step back in time and plan my wedding, Etsy style!

I didn't have a garter toss, but this Ivory Satin Pearl Garter by Natalie Briggs would have changed my mind about that in a heartbeat. Good thing it comes with a throw away garter, because this beauty is too gorgeous to be hanging from some guy's rear view!

Our table centerpieces were grapes with fresh grape vines. Only problem was, the vines wilted within minutes of putting them on the table...Doh! If only I had known about these Wine Bottle Hurricanes by Johnny Rich 10. Talk about a wine lover's perfect centerpiece! So gorgeous.

We chose Merlot and Ivory for our wedding colors. We opted for fresh deep red roses as our cake topper, but I guarantee you I would have found a place for these adorable Love Birds by Felt Me Up Designs somewhere. Don't they just melt your heart?!

We were cheap and skipped wedding favors. Yeah I know, shame on me. Whatever. But these? These are a wedding favor I can really get excited about. Keychain Wine Cork Favors by Peanut Bearys. Total genius. I repent of my favor-less cheapness and beg forgiveness!

This has been so much fun I think I'll have to insist on a 5 year renewal ceremony so that I can incorporate all the delicious items I missed the first time around ;)

Eternal Eden is gearing up for the fall wedding season in all it's glory! Here are a couple of new highlights for fall in my shop...

Butter Cream Hair Pins - Ivory velvet hydrangea hair pins with pearl centers.

Scarlet Hair Comb
- Deep red velvet hydrangea hair comb with pearl centers.

Blush Earrings
- Petite champagne colored pearl earrings.

Here's to the richest most elegant fall weddings! Cheers!

Big. Bold. Rings.

I've been on the hunt for the perfect statement ring and have been dazzled by some of the finds on Etsy! So many quirky, fun and unique pieces. Join me in throwing practicality out the window, and enjoy these dramatic cocktail rings...

First on my list is the Sono Wood Ring by Sweet Simple on Etsy. There are so many things to love about this ring - the colors, the textures, the modern edge. I especially love the weighty, solid feel of this piece.

You'll be hard pressed to find more unique jewelry on Etsy than at Star of the East. This breathtaking Sea Urchin Ring is simply perfection. Pure white shell, warm antique copper, big impact.

Carved Turquoise? Didn't even know it was possible, but SO glad it is because this Arizona Carved Turquoise Ring by Club Gem is exquisite! I love the cushion-y illusion the carving gives.

This next fanciful find is just pure imaginative fun. This Kawaii Japanese Ring by Sou Zou Creations is the best way to wear your morning coffee!

Indulge your love affair with butterflies with this Monarch Butterfly Ring by Jennifer's Family Jewels. Made with real feathers, this ring is not only unique but incredibly beautiful.

And now if you'll allow a little shameless self-promotion, I'd like to showcase one of my own big and bold rings! Red Dahlia Cocktail Ring by Eternal Eden makes a vivid and velvety statement!

Wearable art? Yes! This Explode Ring by Broken Fingers Art is a hand drawn design that is absolutely exploding with originality!

This icy, crunchy Cocktail Ring by Lean Dog Pottery looks good enough to drink! So unique and completely one of a kind. One of my favorites...

And last (not least), this Old Fashioned Bicycle Ring by The River is Everywhere is anything but out-of-date! I'm so in love with the gorgeous green patina and delicate detail of this quirky ring. Brilliant!

I hope you've enjoyed these gorgeously eccentric finds. Until next time...
