Sonja's Gift Earrings Instructions Designed by Artbeads
Carrie presented her bridesmaids with a choice of two sets of bridesmaid's jewelry ! Each one was unique and made to complement their personality. After much deliberation, they each chose the styles they liked best, thinking those were the items they got to keep. They were right, but Carrie also surprised them with a thank you gift of the second set of jewelry on her wedding day! Be sure to check out Sonja's matching necklace and bracelet.
