upcycled awesome

I had the pleasure of working with my friend, Ashley, to design jewelry for her beautiful flower girl & bridesmaids. It was very important to Ashley that every element of her wedding be “eco-friendly”. Creating eco-friendly jewelry was a new and exciting challenge for me! I really enjoyed researching materials for this project. Because Ashley had a previous career as a Marine Biologist we decided to work with sea glass, it is beautiful, eco-friendly, & definitely added a personal touch for Ashley. I used beautiful bright green sea glass collected from the shores of Prince Edward Island in Canada, supplied by Seaglassin.

Ashley & Ron’s incredible wedding photographer, Rab Bozeman, sums up their celebration beautifully…

Ashley and Ron were married July 28, 2012 at Frog Pond in Skaneateles, in the Finger Lakes region of New York. The wedding reflected their passions for friends, family, and all things local. The flowers and many of the vegetables were grown at their CSA, Marigold Farm, and served up by award-winning farm to table chef Stephen Landon. Local beers, handmade details and live music by Jennie Duberstein rounded out a fantastic day and a tremendous celebration. Congratulations Ashley and Ron.
