News / Wedding Gift
A very unique commission....
A beautiful bride wanted a personal thank you gift for her friends mother who made her wedding dress for her big day. How lovely is that?!
I was asked if I could incorporate some fabric from the dress to make the picture - this is what I came up with! Handmade mini mannequin & dress with really cute sewing related theme. The dress is the same style as the dress the bride wore. What do you think? Please excuse the glaring light on the glass, it was so bright out!!
I really enjoyed making this one, was great to work with the client on a rough idea, then let my imagination take over with this as the end result. Really happy with how it turned out, and the client and recipient were too. Yay! :)
I love making special pieces to be gifted for that special occasion, please get in touch if you have an idea for a custom frame.
By far, the strangest thing I've ever been asked to make, but absolutely LOVE the finished result! You may recognise these cufflinks from a particular Simpsons episode...
The (Simpsons obsessed!) bride wanted to give these to her (equally obsessed!) groom as a surprise on the morning of their wedding!! The couple even had Simpson's themed invitations and seating plans, so I was more than happy to be a part of their unique day. What a fab & fun gift that was sure to put a smile on his face. The bride asked her father to give them to the groom on the morning of the wedding, just like the episode!
I had so much fun making these, and in such a tiny size it was tricky enough but god there in the end! I tried my best to even match the box from the episode too. Made using polymar clay and some cuuflink blanks, then cured in the oven and sealed.
Congratulations to Linda & John, wishing you many happy years together!
