GSS Wedding Find :: Jewelry Made Beautifully From Esther Kao

We are always on the hunt for all things wedding and especially spectacular treasures from amazing artisans. Esther from Estie Made went to the studio of DiFiori in search of a few items to display her beautiful jewelry on for the Third Annual Handmade Bash, on April 30th this year at  What she did not expect is having to rummage through all of amazing stuff to find the exact look she was looking for…it was a like a kid in a candy shop! Esther makes beautiful hand-made jewelry and wedding accessories fit for anyone! Be sure to check out her Esty Store for more information.

Who is Esther…

I’m originally from Massachusetts, and moved to Dallas about a year and a half ago. I’m an art director  (I work in advertising) who is not the best at drawing. But I’ve found another outlet: making jewelry. It’s a hobby that I got into after making necklaces for my bridesmaids to wear. And I really enjoy it. I was recently part of my first crafts fair, and plan on opening up an etsy shop soon, to sell my stuff.

Other (random) things about me: I love hole in the wall restaurants. I don’t like to wear white. The only pet I’ve ever had was a pet chicken. I hate to touch raw meat, so I rarely cook it. I’m running my first marathon in October and I’m scared.

Thanks again, Esther! Her amazing hand-made accessories are perfect timing for any bride. Thanks so much to Nita Teng for introducing Esther to us….I foresee a very long friendship!

GSS Featured Wedding Vendor :: BGB Jewelry

While perusing Etsy (looking at things that we shouldn’t buy, but do anyway) we came across  BGB Jewelry and completely melted in our seats from her jewelry’s hotness.  This jewelry is to-die-for!  Here’s a little bit about the owner, Trisha Fay, and her FABULOUS jewelry from BGB Jewelry’s shop page :

“So, a little about my jewelry making, well, I have been creating jewelry for over 20 years. It all started with some really wacky seed bead necklaces that my dad agreed to sell to co workers; and my grandmas, bless their hearts, wore some of my earlier creations. Well, I’ve come along way. I have always enjoyed art, and I’m not very good with pencils & paint brushes, so when I came across beads and making jewelry, I finally felt like I found my niche. I really do enjoy browsing over gemstones, pearls, and crystal. I can stay up for hours creating at my desk that my husband finally made for me since I was leaving all my supplies at the kitchen table.

I would say the best thing about making jewelry is when a customer enjoys a piece as much as I do. It truly is hard to part with my creations, but I get so excited when I hear from customers who are so pleased with their new gems. My number one concern is creating quality original creations and giving memorable customer service.

I currently create for my Fashion Jewelry and Bridal Jewelry Collections. My jewelry is made with a mix of Freshwater Pearls, Swarovski Crystals and Pearls, Semi Precious Gemstones, Quartz, Oxidized Sterling Silver, Sterling Silver, and 14kt gold filled wire. I really enjoy working with my customers, so if you see something you like but want to change it up, please convo me and I can see what I can do.”

And now on to her goodies:
