Wedding Jewelry for my friend, Kelly!

I just got back a couple of days ago from a trip to New York and then straight to California. It's been a crazy few weeks, from the Accessories Show at the Javits Center, then I scouted out a few stores in Laguna Beach and Los Angeles, CA. It was absolutely beautiful on both coasts, and now I'm back in the ATL where it's muggy... No worries, I've got air conditioning.

So going back... a good friend of mine/old roommate who helped me out in the very beginning of Throwing Stars Jewelry, asked me to make her bridesmaid jewelry. Of course I said yes! She was so awesome when I was getting started. She sat with me at our dining room table while I would bead. She even woke up at 5am with me, on a Saturday morning, and helped me set up my first booth at the Minturn Market, CO. She even went so far as to collect rocks from nearby Eagle River and carried them to my booth to help me add some character to my display. The rocks were beautiful, heavy, but beautiful! I really don't think I could have done that first booth without her.

So while I was in Cali, she sent me a picture of her sister-in-law, Liz, wearing the jewelry! It's so great that all of her girls were wearing Throwing Stars! Happy Wedding Kelly! Congratulations!
