While choosing the right dresses may be a bride-to-be’s primary concern when it comes to her bridesmaids, nothing pulls together a look like the perfect jewelry. Offering both custom bridal and everyday jewelry, Etsy vendor Sabtis Designs is the perfect destination for handcrafted pieces, and the perfect way for Bridesmaid Trade to start off our Project Celebrate: Bridesmaid month-long giveaway. On Monday, Twitter user @meKelsey re-tweeted and followed @BridesmaidTrade, and was randomly selected as the first lucky winner, taking home these two gorgeous pieces from Sabtis Designs.
With a father who’s been hunting and collecting gems for years, Estee, the talent behind Sabtis Designs, can’t even remember a time when she wasn’t interested in jewelry making. She recalls, “hearing stories about the exotic places they were from when I was growing up just started my imagination going.” This interest, combined with a self-described “deep and abiding love of weddings,” results in the beautiful Sabtis Designs jewelry, fitting for any bridesmaid or bride-to-be. And while, during her several stints as a bridesmaid, Estee took the customary backseat in selecting her dress (“It is her day and my whole job as a bridesmaid is to support the bride,” she explains), she has, on occasion, made the jewelry for her friends’ weddings.
So what’s a pro’s advice for pairing the right jewelry with a bridesmaid dress? Estee writes, “Don’t be afraid to go for color! Some of the best weddings I have been to are [the ones] where the bridesmaids all look AMAZING on their own and the bride is this beautiful ‘quiet moment’ centerpiece to the picture.” Working with a variety of semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, crystals, glass, and a variety of metals, Sabtis Designs has jewelry that can both add the color to an outfit or accent an already vibrant bridesmaid dress.
