For a beautiful bride

There’s something magical about weddings; it’s a celebration of love and the day every girl gets to look like a modern-day princess.

I was waiting for my beautiful cousin Lana to walk down the aisle and marry the man of her dreams, when I dreamt of this five string crystal bracelet. I love weddings, but with a design on my mind, I couldn’t wait to get home and start creating it!

The ‘Lana Bracelet’ is an intricate five-string cuff bracelet made with Swarovski crystals, diamante spacers and sparkling glass crystals, designed to maintain shape wear after wear.

I spent four days perfecting the design and as a result the bracelet is as strong as it is beautiful. Each string has been knotted 12 times and secured with a crimp which is neatly pushed and glued into a small, silver, ball-shaped bead.

This unique piece can be found in the new Donna Viva ‘D’ Bridal Collection. Browse through the online boutique or contact me to discuss customising a design for your special day.
