Oh, for the lovelies…Bridesmaid Gifts

For your sisterhood…your best friend forever, your nearest and dearest, your twin sister, your polar opposite sister, your soon to be sister-in-law, and for that random bridesmaid who you were persuaded into adding to your bridal party (hey, it happens.).  For your sisterhood in its many forms, here are some pretty special gifts to say, thank you for their love and support…and for that bachelorette party that got a little out of control.

For a glowing surprise, add a Baby Insignia Charm inside a Miniature Round Insignia Trinket Box, with an individualized initial for each bridesmaid. It’s perfect for keepsakes. Personalize the box with an initial or choose from this fleur de lis, a peace sign, or a croix.

The Freeform Pearl Bracelet is a classy mix of traditional and modern…a thoughtful choice for the ladies who can pull off that certain charm.  This graceful bracelet also makes a perfect accessory for your bridesmaids on your wedding day, so you could give them as your gifts and ask that they wear them on the wedding day.

Here’s a lovely way to combine all their charms in one storied cluster of sweetness.  The Banner Charm Holder (in brass or sterling silver) opens to allow charms to dangle lovingly and securely, to keep their treasures safe and near to their hearts.

These Fragments Bangles will be poetry for their wrists…gentle reminders of love adorning with just the right words on golden brass or sterling silver.

Tell Your Story

Letters, words, fragments and pages assemble over time. Except you don’t have to wait for the universe to align the different pieces. When combining favorite charms there is always meaning behind my choices, besides fashion. Sometimes I wear a secret joke or commentary, but usually my combos are a wish to put out and a reminder to myself to keep moving forward always. Everyone has stories, sometimes just one page to mark an occasion or a starting ground for a new Once upon a time…

Staff Favorites: Kya

I’m currently in love with the silver twisted link with brass rings chain. I love the elegant and feminine feel to the chain. It has the simple yet girlie look that fits my particular style.  I also like the contrast of the brass and silver links that makes the whole necklace pop when I wear it.  I typically wear my chain with the medium poetic cross, December birth ornament charm, and a silver crest insignia in the letter C.  In true Waxing Poetic style, this particular combo tells a story that I hold close to my heart.

But I also like to combine what I like to think of as our more feminine or pretty pieces with this chain, like the Storybook, Mother of Pearl and—another one of my absolute favorites—Realize True Riches charms!

Constantly working with customers and helping them create their own stories behind their necklaces, makes it really hard to not fall in love with every piece. I personally like to work first from the chain. I think each chain has its own style, for whatever I feel like for the day.  When I’m feeling “girlie” I go for my twisted link chain and when I feel a little “edgy” I grab my long baby ball or large rolo chain.  That’s what I love about Waxing—there is something for every style, story, and memory.
