Black tie....

My parents have this NYC wedding to go to in a couple of weeks, that is black tie and very fancy (my dad has to wear a tux and everything!). On a sad note, my mom hurt her foot a couple weeks ago - we laugh about it now, but she is in a boot like mine only it's on the other foot. So we are sharing her sneakers. I have the right foot and she has the left and we have matching Cam boots! ha ha Ugh... Unfortunately, she has to wear the boot to the wedding with her beautiful fancy, ruffly, knockout dress, but my dad said that he would wear one too so she wouldn't feel uncomfortable. Isn't that the BEST!! Love my dad!

Anyway, on a positive note, I was asked to design her jewelry so I thought I would share with you what I made. These beads made by melissa beads (on Etsy) were called Safari. When I bought them I told her they looked like Ice Cream Sundae's!! But now that the piece is finished, I can't possibly call it Ice Cream Sundae, it's just not fancy enough. I took the beads, made some silver "s" spirals, wrapped them in Swarovski Crystals in Topaz AB and Mocca and put them all together. I LOVE THIS NECKLACE, and the earrings are so my mom... dangly and sparkly!

Mom and Dad, I hope you have fun at the wedding, and I hope you love your jewelry! :)
Caramel Latte??... No, why do I always lean towards food? Help me name this piece, would you?
