Emma's Custom Crystal Prom Earrings

Back in May a woman emailed me and said that one of her co-workers told her about Crystal Allure. She said, "he told me by order of marriage he was obligated to mention his wife's jewelry business, Crystal Allure". Yes, that was my husband. He's a funny guy. :-)

Emma's Salmon Colored Mermaid Prom Dress with Beading DetailAmy contacted me about designing a custom pair of crystal earrings for her daughter's prom. We communicated the whole custom order through email. I provided her some direction on earring styles based on the style of the dress and asked her to send me some pictures of the dress.

Her daughter, Emma, had chosen a lovely mermaid style dress in a pinkish-salmon color with a silver and gold overlay. It was definately a beautiful dress!

Custom Handmade Crystal Prom Earrings Options by Crystal Allure Beaded JewelrySince the dress was patterned, I suggested a simple crystal earring style, possibly a drop of some sort. So I sent off to Amy a sample picture of crystal colors and four possible earring styles. Although it would be difficult to match the pinkish-salmon color in the dress, I did show a light rose crystal style, for comparison purposes.

Emma's Custom Crystal Drop Prom Earrings (E257)I offered my thoughts on the design and suggested since the dress was so beautiful and elegant, I would chose Style #1 for the style but I would choose Style #2 for the color. What you can't see in the pictures are the many gold-toned beads on the straps of the dress. By going with the golden shadow crystal, it also would not compete with the dress for attention.

Emma did choose exactly this design option and the earrings turned out stunning! Emma was kind enough to send some pictures after her prom and you can see the lovely Emma's Custom Crystal Drop Prom Earrings (E257) and her handsome date below.

Emma had this to say about her custom earrings:

Hey Stephanie,
This is a little late, but I wanted to thank you SO MUCH for my prom
earrings! I've just sent a card along with my mom, so hopefully that gets
to you soon. Again, I loved them so so much and I cannot thank you enough.
Hopefully I'll have some more Crystal Allure earrings in my future :)

Awww! You're very welcome Emma! So glad you loved your earrings and it was my pleasure to design them just for you! Enjoy!

PS: Don't forget, crystal earrings are very versatile and can be worn for more than just special occasions! Pair them with a beaded top, jeans and viola' -instant style!

Great earrings Stephanie! I'm having more & more fun working with Crystals for special occasion jewelry. The colors are so sparkly and the design options are endless. How much fun is that?

You did an excellent job sharing your expertise to help choose the stone. They were the perfect compliment for a beautiful gown!

Two thumbs up darlin! Have a terrific afternoon!

Thanks for the comments ladies! It really fulfills an artists' creativeness when they have full control over the design. So far, all of my custom jewelry requests have given me that and have been an absolute joy to do.
