For the Bride-To-Be
Her Wedding Party

For your special day, consider nothing less than custom made jewelry for you and your bridal party! You will find many unique, and one of a kind pieces of jewelry at Heart's Desire Beading Company, all made with you in mind! Each piece is lovingly handmade using only the finest metals, pearls and Swarovski crystals for a quality design!

For you bridal party, custom made earrings, bracelets and necklaces with Swarovski crystals and pearls are a must! Swarovski crystals come in a wide variety of styles and color palettes to match the current fashion trends! Their crystal beads and glass pearls are the highest quality product in the beading industry, which is why I use them in my jewelry!

The pearl is the oldest known gem, and was considered a most valuable possession during ancient times! Because they are a symbol of unblemished perfection, purity and innocence, they are often found in traditional wedding jewelry.

The ancient Greeks thought of pearls as the "wedding gem" because they believed that pearls would help ensure marital bliss for the couple and prevent new brides from crying.

I hand pick each strand of freshwater pearls used in my jewelry to assure the quality of each handmade piece!

Custom orders are always welcome and I will do my best to create what you have requested within the budget you have to work with! Please note that all custom orders must be paid for in advance, and allow at least 14 days to complete your specially made items. A good rule of thumb is to special order your jewelry at least 2 months (or more) before the date of your wedding. Also, you will be able to see a picture of your custom made jewelry order online in my Flickr account. This will insure that the items are exactly what you want before your order is shipped so that we can both feel confident that your special order is correct! Please be sure to read the terms of service on my website for all pertinent information on custom orders.

Thank you for stopping by, and I look forward to creating something very special and elegant for your wedding day!

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

A thought for today....

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."

Abraham Lincoln

Elegantly yours.....
