Introducing our new collection of personalized jewelry. Inspired by heirloom pieces from her grandmother, Andrea wanted to offer a modern take on the classic monogram jewelry. Choose from a single initial with diamonds or a gorgeous girly script font large monogram with options in between (including a bracelet that looks amazing stacked up for a serious arm candy party!) These pieces look stunning alone with your favorite soft tee or layered up with some fun, long necklaces for more of a statement look. Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve got you covered. And these items are timeless, so they’re sure to be handed down for generations to come. So come on, express yourself!
I truly love doing custom work. My very favorite part of this business is the design aspect and it is very often the part I spend the least time doing. Administrative tasks like customer emails, ordering materials, accounting, filing taxes, shipping orders, etc. take up way more of my time than I would like. Even though I have an incredible assistant, those things still dominate. So, when someone calls me with a custom design order, I get really excited to let the creative juices flow… (more…)
Let’s be honest. Most of us wrestle with the age-old, “What should I wear?!” question more often than not. Whether you are going to a cocktail party or hitting the gym, picking out outfits (and shopping for them!) takes some thought. And your wedding is no exception. When you’re planning your wedding, the bridal gown really does set the tone for the entire event. And I would say that it doesn’t stop there. The entire bridal ensemble is an important part of setting the tone – from your hair to your makeup, your gown to your shoes and everything in between. And bridal jewelry is no exception! Today, we have some wise words from a bridal gown expert on how to best match jewelry to your wedding dress. It’s not always an easy task, but it is one that is well worth the effort, because jewelry can absolutely make the outfit. So, here are some thoughts and lovely photos from our friends over at Simply Bridal… (more…)
When a friend of mine from junior high emailed me a request for custom jewelry work, my first thought was, “How sweet of her to think of me and how fun that Facebook keeps people connected who might otherwise have no idea what someone they went to school with 20 years ago is currently doing!” I know that there’s a lot of debate about how Facebook takes away the personal nature of face-to-face relationships, but I really think that when used in the right context, it’s pretty cool for keeping people connected in a world where we can feel pretty disjointed for myriad reasons. But, I digress… (more…)
Yesterday, we shared a beautiful bride with you. Today, we wanted to share her vision for her bridesmaids. Her attendants wore stunning long strapless gowns in a beautiful midnight navy blue for the black tie affair. The bride wanted classic designs for her girls that complimented their classic attire and wanted to give them a necklace and earring set as bridesmaid gifts (which is always a big hit!) (more…)
We absolutely LOVE working with brides here at Andrea Montgomery Designs. Weddings are such a special time for people and brides are always so excited to share their vision for their special day. We love seeing all of the different things people choose for their ceremony and reception and they are always as unique as the people themselves. It’s so much fun to work with a bride to help create her bridal jewelry vision and make it a reality for wearing on her special day and I absolutely love the thought that those pieces will become heirlooms.

I’m currently working on several custom bridal and bridesmaid jewelry orders. I absolutely LOVE this part of designing. I love making something unique for the bride and her friends – something that will enhance their dresses, make them feel even more beautiful on the special day AND be something that the will actually wear again and again (unlike those dresses, beautiful as they may be!) And each time they put that jewelry on, they’ll get to re-live their special day just a bit. (more…)
Andrea Montgomery LOVES designing custom orders for brides – and this one was extra fun!
When effortlessly chic Sarah Jane approached me about doing her bridal jewelry, I knew that I was in for a treat. This bride has such a fabulous sense of style that is all her own and it really made doing her wedding jewelry so much fun! Her wedding was in gorgeous Aspen in the Fall and she wanted to do something different – so she incorporated purple into all of her wedding jewelry. I absolutely LOVED it! (more…)
My incredibly talented wedding photographer, Brooke Schwab, recently did a photo shoot in Austin for The Knot magazine and she asked me to be the official jewelry designer for the shoot! AMD is magazine-bound again! Check out her blog for a preview of some of the pics from the recent shoot – and her amazing photography!
