Ribbon Bracelet to-be

Perhaps the only thing I love more than a ruffle is a bow.  I have a mad obsession for bows.  My engagement ring . . . is a bow.  And about as cute as it gets, by the way -  just sayin’.  I’ve been thinking a lot about my wedding jewelry and have completely ruled out necklaces.  As much as I want to wear one (and have photoshopped about a million of them into a picture of me in my dress), the look is definitely better without a necklace.  And I can’t go overboard with earrings either because I’ll have all those ruffles over my ears (which is for the best – I’ve got some weirdo ears).  I’m crazy about cocktail rings, but my engagement and wedding rings are for sure taking center stage, so I am left with bracelets.  Which is awesome ’cause I love bracelets.   Side note: if you love bows as much as I do, do NOT google “bow bracelet” – you may throw up from over-stimulation.

P.S. None of those bracelets are really what I have in mind, but after spending a ridiculous amount of time trying to google-up an image of a ribbon tied around someone’s wrist in a non-religious way, I gave up.  Don’t people do this?  Seems so weird to me – it’s the cutest thing in the world!

  1. Just this weekend my mom and I just talked about making a few wrist corsages for grandmas and the moms. I made a flower from raw silk that just might work. I have a little tutorial too: http://apalershadeofwhite.blogspot.com/2010/04/if-you-are-going-to-san-francisco.html
