She's finally here. Our newest limited-edition, The Cinderella Garter, has finally landed. I cannot put into words how much this garter means to me personally. It has been incubating in my imagination for over three years, but we didn't take the first steps towards bringing it to fruition until October of 2019. Since then, it has been ALL I have worked on when I am not working on fulfilling client orders. This design took an interesting twist about one month ago: we released photos of it on Cyber Monday and then realized that it still wasn't quite as Cinderella as it could be. So, we retracted the photos, brought it back to the drawing board, and re-designed it once again. Believe me when I tell you that blood, sweat, and tears have gone into the creation of this design. It is with a momma proud heart that I say IT IS FINALLY HERE AND IT IS HAS FINALLY REACHED IT'S FULL POTENTIAL.
This garter was designed for the bride who absolutely adores Cinderella.
Every detail of this garter was inspired by the bride who adores animals and is well-known for her compassionate nature. More likely than not, this bride is not a very loud person. In fact, she might be one of the quietest people at a party, but she is known for carrying herself with a grace that is unparalleled. Anyone who knows this bride is well aware of the fact that she believes deeply in acts of service, whether it be volunteering to help abandoned animals or assisting the elderly who have become too old to be able to care for themselves anymore. With love and a strong sense of humanity in mind, we created this garter for the bride who is highly in tune with the needs of the people in just about any environment that she finds herself in. We repeat: She is a person who cannot help but LOVING other living things - no matter what their size, shape, color, or origin.
From her everyday outfits to the quality of her eye contact, everything she does exudes humility. Those who are not wise interpret her kindness for weakness, however those who know better can see that this is not the case. To put it simply, foolish people feel sorry for her and the wise admire her. But make no mistake about it, the Glass Slipper bride is not weak. On the contrary, she views kindness as strength and carries a strong conviction that kindness + courage are the two of the most important things in the world.
It is very possible that this bride has suffered abuse or neglect from her family. But do you know what else is possible? That she endured this suffering, learned from it, and through her incredible resilience became an even better person. More likely than not, she will be saying "I Do" surrounded by only those whom she truly trusts.
Please note: if you are a person who does not like animal or who someone who strongly believes in the power of revenge, then this garter is not for you.
This front of this garter is made using a beautiful mixture of sparkling iridescent, clear, and blue opal rhinestones. At the center of the design is one crystal tiara pendant with silver-set detailing. If you look at the back side, you will notice that the outside is made of a glistening, Cinderella blue organza fabric, reminiscent of Cinderella's iconic blue ballgown. For a touch of sparkle, you will see that hand-placed twenty sparkling swarovski rhinestones along the back band. Our favorite part? The inside of the band is embroidered with the phrase "Have Courage and Be Strong" in the same signature Cinderella Blue that the back band features. Please note: this is a limited-edition design. We currently have only 18 of these in stock. (as of January 10th, 2020)
