Custom wedding design is definitely my favorite part of designing jewelry, and working with Christie was even more fun!  She was excited to try something not so typical, and we came up with the perfect designs to reflect her style and the theme for her wedding day.  She is a Long Island girl and played on the nautical theme, and it is totally her.  I loved that she chose to go with navy blue pearls, which were very dramatic.

Not to mention she is absolutely gorgeous anyway!

Christie's necklace is sterling silver with a navy freshwater pearl cluster, Swarovski crystals, and a teardrop shell pendent, embellished with a long crystal and pearl dangle at the closure in the back.  She wanted pearls and sparkle that were reminiscent of the sea.

She also gifted her bridesmaids with these beautifully simplistic pieces of navy freshwater pearl, Swarovski crystal and silver, which echo her piece.


Each was embellished with crystal and a wire wrapped pearl at the closure.

Christie was stunning, and I think this shot shows what a fun couple they are!  The excellent wedding photography was done by Johannah Lech.  Click here for more samples of our custom design work, and here to contact us for more information.  We'd love to work with you on you're perfect custom wedding jewelry!

Variya is actually my middle name (spelled Varia).  My Dad made it up.  Before the internet I would have lived my life out in the bliss of thinking my name is completely distinct and unique (which was not blissful as a kid when I only wanted to blend in!) In the information age however, I find that there are numerous versions of my name around the world, from a Dutch social development company to an Engineering company in India.  Then I found this video (not the same pronunciation) and it makes the fact that I have to share my namesake a little more okay.  Enjoy.

The Matchbox 20 song "How Far We've Come" has been a bit of a theme for my summer this year.  I started running (but I'm NOT a runner), and training with a goal to do a 5k at the end of August  This is a song on my ipod that gets me through when I'm ready to quit.  IF I run it, I will run the whole thing - no walking =) I haven't signed up yet though..

I've been married eleven years to my high school sweetheart, we've embarked on a new adventure and we have a long beautiful history together.  Many times this summer we have looked backed to see how far we've come as we press into what is next for us...

My son turned SIX! and is going to kindergarten in the fall it's been an incredible journey so far..

.. no, we did not have a birthday pizza. it was the hot wheels birthday party he asked for all year with pumpkin spice cake and cream cheese frosting  =) ..
I've logged one year selling my designs on Etsy, and sales have been more than I ever expected when I began this little venture!  We have also been welcomed to sell in a few central New York shops, which is definitely something I never had imagined!
