Inspired by a Celebrity
These two couples are popular celebrities in the Philippines. I will not go through the story on how their “surprise” “mob” wedding came about (just google: Carmina and Zoren wedding), but I will tell you how I came about noticing the beautiful earrings the bride wore.
A client approached me in December and asked if I saw the wedding on tv. I said I did not and she told me her sister, who lives in the US saw it. She was getting married in December and wanted a similar pair of earrings to that of Carmina’s (the celebrity).
2 weeks. I had about 2 weeks to make this pair. That, plus 2 other weddings I was preparing for. But I will never back out of a challenge. Besides, new supplies and materials just arrived from the mail and they were just sooo perfect to recreate the piece.
There were no close up photos of the earrings. The closest I got was this photo:
The inspiration piece looked like it had a large diamond stud from where a teardrop-shaped dangler hung and from this dangler, a couple of smaller teardrop-shaped danglers also hung.
The ClassicSparklers’ filigree technique was fully used on this piece. All sterling silver where diamond Swarovski faceted bicones were scattered about for that added shine. For that diamond stud, I used faceted Austrian crystals. For the smaller danglers I used sterling silver bezel set cubic zircons.
