It's blisteringly hot down here and the AC has been down for nearly a month (don't ask, ugh) but that's not stopping me from making! I received a unique request from a bride-to-be to produce a range of blue circuit board items for her wedding.
She requested boutonnieres and having never made one, I was up to the challenge! BONUS! I used pendants as the focal piece, so when the wedding is over, you can unwrap the ribbon and take the pendant out to wear!
I have to admit, I wasn't confident the combination of traditional components (pearls, flowers, and ribbon) was going to look good with circuit board but I think the keyboard "leaf" really helped pull the look together.
Just look at all these cuties!
There's also a *small* battle between them: Android or Apple? I think it's clear what side the bride took:
She also requested a range of items based on the needs of each bridesmaid and the mothers. Some had gauges, some needed sterling silver. I did it all!
Normally I make these leather bracelets with black leather, but the bride's colors were blue and white. I really like the way the white leather looks, especially with this specific circuit board piece; it pairs beautifully with all the white silkscreen on the PCB.
It was such a pleasure and an honor to work with Christiana! I can't wait to see the photos from her wedding. I'd really like to see the cake and favors!
