#JomarAndJulieBTS: Handcrafted Hair Accessory and Wedding Cord

"It's all in the details" is one of my mottos, which is why I was so grateful and happy when my maid-of-honor Liz Mariano of jewelboxballerina.com gave me a set of her hair accessories to choose from! I had a tough time, but ended up picking this beautifully and lovingly handcrafted piece:



 

See how it wonderfully complemented the neckline of my dress? #dying #sopretty

She made this herself! Head over to her website for other gorgeous, intricate finds like this beaded headband:


 
 
My other "sponsored" accessory was the wedding cord that was a surprise gift from one of my mother's friends. Tita Julie asked my Mama what our wedding colors were and handmade this lovely Rosary Cord using real Rose Quartz. When I received it, it felt like I was holding a piece of treasure: it came in a pretty ribbon-covered box and inside, the cord was delicately wrapped in tissue paper. These pictures don't do the cord justice: in real life, the beads are a gorgeous shade of pink, and it's a bit weighty because of the real stones. The wedding cord symbolizes the couple's unity under the sacrament of matrimony - what better way to represent that unity than with a beautifully made cord that will literally last a lifetime? Tita Julie, we can never thank you enough for your gift!
 
(Message me on Facebook for her contact info, she can custom make yours in your wedding colors!)
 




 
I'm always amazed and inspired by the talents of people like Ate Liz and Tita Julie, who can create beautiful things with their own two hands. Cheers to artists who show us that a little creativity goes a long way!
 
<3,
