a leap of faith.

We do lots of bridal jewelry

mostly bridesmaids gifts (order 7 or more and get 10% off!)

but also great for mother of the bride, flower girls,

or the bride herself...

and our men's cuffs and keychains even make great groomsman gifts!

In the July issue of BRIDES magazine

you will see this...!!!

BRIDES magazine ad!!!

It was a HUGE leap for us

(GIGANTIC!!!!!!!)

waaaaay out of our league

but we were curious

so we went for it!

Please cross your fingers and toes with us

and believe for a great return :)

How exciting!

Last Tuesday a girlfriend of mine was wearing a beautiful necklace. It looked strangely familiar. I asked here where she got it, and she smiled and said her husband bought it for her for Mothers Day. I leaned over and asked him where he got it, and he said, "Vintage Pearl, isn't it beautiful?" :-)

Congratulations on the big ad! I wish I were a bride again (with the same sweet hubby). The ad looks great, and I hope it brings you lots of business. You're jewelry just seems wonderful. (I'm currently waiting on my first piece to arrive.) And what a great idea for a bridal gift, or bridesmaid gifts, or groomsmen gifts, or for the groom, or for the mother of the bride, etc.
