wedding wednesday's



So I got off work early yesterday and I was just about 
to start working on the new pieces for my upcoming shop update 
when I decided to focus on myself instead..
Yes I do feel a little bit guilty... 

But I realized that I have my next dress fitting April first.
No joke!
And I need my bridal crown by then so I can see it all together.
In case I look ridiculous I will have time to come up with a back up plan 
ha ha

So I sat down at the bench and stared at the little triangles I had cut.
At the little filigree swirls...

...and then I started working.
Bending wires, making little silver balls 
for flush set stones and filigree roses.
Slowly it started to come together.
And before I knew it I had landed on a design!


But you never know with me. I might still tweak it or change it.
At least I felt like I got somewhere. 
I have been slightly terrified of working on it for some reason.
I am really hoping I'll get some time to start soldering it together tonight.

Please cross your fingers that I won't mess up!

love ~tess

I treasure your words and the fact that you are
taking the time to share them with me.
