Tirzah and Stuart Forrister Wedding

Introducing Tirzah and Stuart Forrister!
 Tirzah had me make a different pair of earrings for each of her bridesmaids, 
all matching her peachy-pink wedding dress.

The masterpiece of this wedding was Tirzah's earrings though! 

I created these custom earrings in collaboration with Tirzah to match the flower applique on her dress, see photo below. The petals on these earrings are each hand forged with 14k gold fill and hand wrapped with fresh water pearls and and peach moonstones.

I also made Tirzah a very simple pearl drop necklace to compliment her magnificent earrings and dress. See her complete look below!

I am honored to have had the opportunity to create custom jewelry for all the ladies in the Forrister Wedding. It is my greatest pleasure to help make such a special day even more memorable.

A Behind the Scenes Glimpse

The Early Days at the Jewelry by Viki Studio

In 2010 I did a studio photo shoot with the amazing Kelly Goode of June Lion Photography. I though you might like to see how things went down when I was a one woman show working out my my garage. Oh memories...

Forming my signature leaf shape

Here I am soldering a couple points on the leaves to make them solid
Yes, I really do smile while I do this
