Bees – I need help. I have 2 weeks left or so and I am totally stuck on jewelry. UGH!
Here is my dress:
Now. I have decided to order these earrings from an etsy seller:
I also have ordered hair pins from her already with some swarovski and pearl tips. Note – the belt on my dress if you can’t see it in this photo has pearl and swarovski crystals and little flowers so I am trying to coordinate with that, I am not wearing a necklace. I tried a few on and I couldn’t commit so I’m going with the big earring instead. She has a few options of bracelets.
This is the matching bracelet to the earrings. My concern is that it will catch on the lace on the dress. She could make it with head pins instead of loops on the ends of the beads, but will that really help?
OR i could have her make this into a bracelet instead of necklace:
I wasn’t able to find much else that I really liked on etsy. There is a bracelet I liked at the store I bought the dress at, it was also wire, but it was 74.00 and these are much better priced. I’ve added a poll! Thanks ladies!

The necklace is so pretty, and already matches pretty well, and since there wouldn’t be any chance of that snagging, I say go for that one! Pretty dress, by the way!

I voted for the necklace becuse i have far too much experience with snagged lace and it if so heartbreaking, expecially on a dress that people either cherish and keep, or wish to resell, any snagged lace will drop the resell value, or if you should pass your dress down, it can make for some costly repairs (this also all varies onthe type of lace, laces like chantilly are the worst!) all that being said, all options are lovely and would look great!

@honeybee13: yeah that is what I’m afraid of so the necklace as a bracelet is my safest bet I think

I agree the necklace would be the safest bet. You definately don’t want snags all night!
