Sea+Stone began with a trip to Brazil, and some of our jewelry made it's way back...
When I quit my corporate design job and decided to launch a jewelry brand, I decided to take some time to travel. I had the pleasure of spending several weeks in Brazil, and fell in love with its beautiful scenery, vibrant colors, and friendly, passionate people! I visited mines, jewelry makers, gem cutters, showrooms, and jewelry museums (did you know most of the world's colored gemstones originate in Brazil?). I returned feeling SO inspired and was so thrilled to find out that four years later, some of our jewelry made it's way back there!
Meet Lara & Davi
Lara and I were in high school together in Tallahassee! After college, she moved to beautiful Salvidor, Brazil. She and her husband, Davi, tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony this past December. A girl after my own heart, Lara selected a Sherri Hill dress with vibrant embroidery on the bodice. The colorful floral details were just perfect and called for some simple, shimmering details!
I was at a trunk show in Tallahassee during the holidays last year, when Lara's mom came to shop for the perfect accessory for Lara's big day! I feel so incredibly excited every time someone chooses to wear S+S jewelry, so when someone decides they want to wear it or give it as a gift for such a special occasion or life milestone- it is truly the greatest honor of all!
She selected one of my favorite styles- our vermeil pearl threader earring. This earring is comfortable and easy to wear- it matches nearly every outfit (seriously, from casual attire to a wedding gown!). Its minimal design adds just the right amount of golden sparkle and sophistication to most any look!
I love the way Lara incorporated it into her special day. The earrings were the perfect finishing detail- subtly adding a bit of movement and metallic shine, while not stealing the show away from her gorgeous dress.
Thank you SO much to Lara for choosing to wear S+S on your special day! You are absolutely stunning, and I wish you and Davi a lifetime of love and happiness together. You are also an angel for sending these beautiful photos to me, taken by their talented wedding photographers, Edgar and Rafael. Check out their work here: http://www.laiafilms.com.br/
