After the rush of the Holiday season, I am coming up for air and excited to create and check in on the 2017 Bridal trends.Read More
News for Everistta fashion and bridal jewelry.
Taking a moment to say THANK YOU for supporting me this October. I enjoyed seeing the beautiful and meaningful combinations that everyone put together.
I purposely chose each and every Swarovski stone for each month to make them fun and meaningful to YOU. My favorite part is that much like all the moments in your life. They are all different, but that's what makes up you.
Here's a look at some of my top 5 favorite ideas that YOU came up with along the way.
1. A bracelet for firsts. First job, first apartment, first time leaving home, first pet, first home...
2. A modern friendship bracelet. Wear all of your best friends birthdays on your wrist to remember all of those fun and crazy memories.
3. Honoring anniversaries. Your engagement, your wedding anniversary, your parents wedding anniversary.
4. Family over everything. Honoring all of those in your family. Near or far, here or in the sky.
5. Moments in time. Those moments that every time you think of them it puts a huge smile on your face. Hold onto them and never let them go.
To create your own, go to the link here. Please let me know if you have ANY questions. I'm happy to help in any way. (If you are ordering for the holidays all orders close the first week in December as they are all made to order. )
I'm also excited to gear up for the holidays. A peak at one of my favorites. Link here.
Each year I celebrate my Mom who had a courageous fight with Breast Cancer and support a Greensboro organization that's close to my heart - earlier.org . For the 2016 bracelet, I'm throwing caution to the wind and MIXING it up! Above all else, my Mom loved family and friends. It was her life and her legacy. So this year I celebrate all of those fun loving and crazy combinations! To read more about my journey with BRCA2 and why I support earlier detection of breast cancer each year, please go here.
How Does It Work?
It's easy! You choose the months to celebrate and I mix it up for you. Honor whoever makes you smile in your life or even an event. Combinations so far have been...
Parents Wedding Anniversaries
In Memory of Someone
The list could go on and on. Just have fun! If you add a birthstone in memory of someone, I will add a star to your bracelet. I truly believe our loved ones watch over us in the stars.
If you have multiple people to celebrate in the same month, you can add the same Swarovski crystal bead more times or just use one to signify the month.
For my bracelet, I chose to celebrate my Mom, my daughter, my son and my husband. I am making one next to honor all my best girlfriends that help me navigate this crazy world on a daily basis. I can't wait!
And yes! The pink is still in there too. It's just a little blinged this year!
Choose AS MANY birthstones as you like. Mix it up, have fun and SMILE! My Mom would love this idea!
This year's bracelet is made to order so start planning holiday gifts now! Each bracelet is handmade with Swarovski crystals and silver filled beads. Like gold fill jewelry, silver fill is a thick layer of sterling silver that will not tarnish easily with proper care. They are perfect for stacking with all of your other bracelets too!
Here is a link to purchase the 2016 bracelet.
A percentage of the proceeds supports Earlier.org - the nation's only breast cancer charity focused exclusively on supporting research for new discoveries of an innovative biological test to detect breast cancer earlier.
I would love it if you would share with your friends and family! So important to spread the word!

I am going to be doing more traveling over the next few months and it got me thinking about being able to grab a "go to" small collection of earrings to go from day to night throughout the trip. After all the wedding preparations, couples want to kick back and relax on their honeymoon. With keeping things easy in mind, I put together a collection of trios.Read More
As a professional MUA, it is my business to invest in every aspect of my client’s occasion I’m being hired for. Like photographers and event planners, I need to know what the lighting will be like, I need to know the color scheme, I need to know the temperature. I pretty much study every aspect I possibly can before I even apply any makeup on my client. However, on top of all of the logistical details I have to know about the event, I most importantly need to make sure any/all makeup reflects the personality and essence of my client.Read More
I love creating sentimental jewelry. One of my previous clients approached me about creating a custom necklace for her mother that features her birthstone and her sisters.Read More
It's Wedding Wednesday which means I'm bringing you a glam find to add to your wedding gift or anytime repertoire. I came across the loveliest state signs a few months ago through the Rising Tide Society. I fell in love immediately! I knew I had to share them.Read More
If you are like me, you may be shy and unsure if a boudoir session is for you. I asked Autumn Rudolph who specializes in boudoir photography to break it down for us ladies. I love her nurturing, uplifting and empowering take on her boudoir sessions.Read More
To kick off my Wedding Wednesday "Glam Finds" series, I'm really excited to share the beautiful handcrafted work of Jaime from Eikoh Design Studio. I fell in love with Jaime's beautiful glassware from a styled shoot I worked on a few months ago in Charlotte, NC. She's a fellow Baltimorean, so I knew I needed to tell you about her gorgeous sandblasted wedding stemware. There are so many unique designs. This beautiful glassware makes the perfect glam wedding gift. Champagne flutes for an engagement party or wine glasses for bridal shower. So many options!Read More
I've been stretching my creative wings and having fun with styled shoots this winter. Styled shoots are a great way for photographers, planners and vendors to collaborate, get their creative juices flowing and shoot some AMAZING bridal inspiration.
When I saw that the talented Hannah Lane Photography was having a Charleston inspired styled shoot at the swoon-worthy Sunshine Oaks Retreat, I knew I need to jump on board! She had me at "Charleston". Hello plantations and gorgeous willow trees!Read More
A Peek Behind the Glam
Each week I'll give you a look behind the scenes of my jewelry. I had this beautiful thick square piece of rose gold fill wire around the studio for quite some time. I had a vision in my head for a modern/elegant collar necklace.
A styled shoot opportunity came up that focused on a romantic bride featuring a long sleeved laced gown with a GORGEOUS neckline. PERFECT! I can't share the styled shoot just yet, but let me tell you. It is stunning! I'm thrilled the way this necklace came together too. It really captures the romantic spirit of a modern bride. Would be really pretty on bridesmaids too.
This necklace is hand hammered by me from 14K rose gold wire. Adorned with 14K gold fill chain, freshwater pearls and crystal clear swarovski crystals.
It's not pinkRead More
We love to meet and collaborate with other wedding professionals. If you would like to use any of our jewelry in your styled shoots or want to work on a shoot together; just ask. We would be thrilled! We are all wedding nerds at heart!
A peak at a collaboration with Twila & Co for a "Great Gatsby" themed styled shoot. We'll be blogging more about this one later.
We hope to meet you, hear about your business and work together. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to work together in the future.
Last Spring we had the pleasure of collaborating with a talented team from Bloom Makeup Artistry to provide jewelry for their styled photo shoot. Their work is absolutely stunning! You will be drooling over Briggitte's work. She is truly talented with her make up brush. Everyone looks flawless! I wish I lived closer to Texas so she could do my makeup!
Thank you to Amy Dunn for capturing all these stunning images.
