I <3 bling, too!!
I fell in LOVE with a Swarovski necklace that was some MAJOR bling, but I think I pulled it off. I justified the major pricetag with wearing it for my BD shoot as well as my wedding jewelry hehehehe
I needed a matching bracelet, so I ended up making my own and loving it so much that I made one for each member of my bridal party. People were asking where I bought them (even while we were still at the resort!) and so I decided to make them for other people too!
