Detail: Bling.

I had a pretty eclectic mix of jewelry. Some was passed down, some I’ve not taken off in years, some was custom made. And it all rocked.

The Cape Cod (or Dennis) bracelets I never take off.

My aunt Ellen gave me this ring. My mother had given it to her on her wedding day.

My Precious.

Our wedding bands were customized and purchased off of Etsy. For $25 each.

The white pearls were my mother's. I had the turquoise ones commissioned on Etsy.

The woman who made the turquoise pearls threw in these earrings.

Detail: Bouquet.

The disc of our images came in! So now, finally, I get to show off the awesomeness of Kat and Justin‘s work. I’m going to start with detail shots and slowly work up to all the real stuff. Kat said she’s still trying to get me into the blogiverse, so I don’t want to put up too much in the case of it actually happening.

So to kick it off, I’m going to start with my gorgeous brooch bouquet. My mother gave me many of her brooches a couple weeks before she passed. My boss gave me an awesome one that looks like a 1920s flapper, Susie gave me some that had been in her family and Kath, who contributed some of hers and bought a few, put them all together. The thing was SUPER heavy, but turned out beautifully.

















































































































































Not being super into flowers, I figured a brooch bouquet would be a suitable alternative. Plus it enabled me to carry something sentimental and unique.

Kath wrapped it in white organza and sewed those blue beads on to make it look like pins in a normal bouquet. In the locket are photos of Aussie’s maternal grandparents and my paternal grandparents on their wedding day. I also had a Red Sox pin in there … with a PBR pin.

Oh hey, come here often?

I realized, that other than this post (oh yeah, remember all that stuff? Well I have WAYYYY cooler photos … just you wait), I haven’t properly given My Precious its due. So …























It’s a family heirloom from 1914. His great-grandmother’s engagement ring. His mum shipped it over super-secret James Bond style. It fit almost perfectly when I first slipped it on and is proportionate to my tiny carnie-esque hand size. I love it.

It’s unique and has mixed metals, which I love since I wear a mix of gold and silver anyway. And when it’s clean, boy does that puppy shine!!!

Persimmon Images. Obviously.

Mistakenly, I began browsing Etsy tonight. And I say mistakenly because I love it so much that, much like I just did, I lose at least an hour of my life nearly every time I log on … I. JUST. CAN’T. STOP.

Well, I thought I’d try to be semi-productive with my obsessive browsing and bring you some radtastic off-the-beaten-path rings that would rock for engagement rings or just some baller bling.
