Bridal Presentations made easy with Duetica Fonts!

I was asked to create some bridesmaids jewelry for six young women. The wedding colors are ivory & navy blue. The bracelets & earrings were made of Swarovski ivory pearls/clear crystals on a stretch cording. After the jewelry was created, I wanted to help the bride out by having the jewelry ready to hand out to her bridesmaids.

I've been working with Duetica Fonts alot lately & came up with the most perfect presentation format.


The names were provided by the Bride......and when printed on ivory linen cardstock, the Mandolyn font added such a classy/elegant look.



Each bracelet & earring set was secured by Beacon Adhesives Quick Grip glue to prevent loss of the jewelry. Again the Mandolyn font was so much fun to use. Each letter was selected especially for the occasion....making it a one of a kind lettering.


To make something truly one of a kind.......Duetica allows you to do this very thing!
