Kariane Wedding Keepsake Necklace


Your best friend is getting married. Imagine giving her a custom necklace made with lace or other fabric from her wedding gown. With just a small cutting from a wedding dress alteration, I will create a deeply sentimental and beautiful gift for the bride. This has been a popular jewelry piece given from sisters of the bride, maid of honor or bridesmaid as well as to the mother of the bride.

This unique necklace can be made from a mother's, grandmother's, or the bride's wedding dress fabrics. A beautiful way to preserve memories of the most special day and most important item of clothing she will ever wear, or to remember a loved one through a unique piece of jewelry.

You may have one pendant necklace made, or make several as memorial gifts for family members or bridesmaids.

Custom Memory Pendants can be ordered before the wedding, or as an anniversary gift. Either way, they are a beautiful way to enjoy your wedding dress fabric long after the day is over.

Your pendant can be made with an under-layer of ivory silk bridal satin, or choose another color to really make your lace design pop. Order several in different colors if you'd like to coordinate with various outfits.

How to order your Custom Memory Pendant:

1. Add this item to your cart and select quantity of pendants, and chain length desired.

2. Complete your order and be sure to note your silk fabric color choice in the special instructions field (this fabric will be layered under your lace. I have many colors of silk available and will choose a fabric based on your request. Alternately, you may decide to send your own base fabric and I will work with that.

3. Send a swatch of your wedding dress (or other) fabric, measuring 3 inches square or larger, for each pendant you would like to order to:
Ceci Leibovitz
PO Box 207
Craftsbury Common, VT 05827

If ordering more than one pendant, just increase fabric by three inches square for each pendant and send fabric all in one piece if possible. Please include a note telling me the color that you would like for your silk under-layer.

5. If you prefer to send your own under-layer fabric, please include a piece in the same measurement as your wedding dress fabric. Otherwise, please note desired color and I will choose a silk fabric for your piece.

6. I will begin work on your custom jewelry after I receive your fabric. It will be finished within two weeks and shipped to you or your gift recipient!

Pendant is solid pewter plated with antiqued 24 karat gold and includes delicate, sturdy chain with tiny bead design, also plated in gold.

Please Note: If you order more than one pendant, each will look slightly different, depending on which part of the lace is used to make it.
