Making Moments Last a Lifetime

We are in the thick of wedding season and as we continue to create one of kind invitations and jewelry, we are reminded how important every detail is to make a wedding unforgettable. From something as simple as adding "something blue" to a bridal necklace to the major details of making sure invitations are assembled perfectly, ribbons tied just right and stamps added to RSVP's, Melissa and I make sure that every bride walks away feeling as if Tu Vida contributed to making their wedding day memories last forever.

Just recently, a bride asked me to create a necklace for her mother that would include a locket which she would put a picture of herself as a child with her mom on one side and a picture from her wedding day on the other side. I was so excited to create this piece as I know how much this meant to the bride. The picture above is the design that I created. She wanted something that could match everything in her mother's wardrobe, thus the multicolor crystals allow for this necklace to be worn just about everyday. The locket that I found is unique in that it closes with a magnet and the spiral design makes it a contemporary "twist" on the traditional locket. Since designing this necklace, I have since sold 4 more at various jewelry parties and it will soon be added to our Etsy page. I took this picture on a framed quote that I use as my business motto:

"Life is not a matter of milestones, but of moments"

Through our bridal line, our awareness jewelry and our everyday jewelry, we strive to make sure that every piece of jewelry and stationery helps to make moments last a lifetime. We look forward to many more designs to come...
