Another interesting fact that Rebecca shared with me about her family is that they also had Cherokee Indian heritage and that the feather was another important family symbol. Even though that aspect of her family's heritage is mostly unknown, Chris and Rebecca wanted to honor this part in their wedding by also including a Native American Wedding vase made for the ceremony.
In designing Rebecca's wedding necklace, I thought it would be an interesting idea to include both her Cherokee Indian heritage as well as her families' Irish background. I wanted these two aspects to be the focal components in the necklace. So I came up with a design that would basically allow Rebecca to have two necklaces in one. For the actual wedding ceremony, she could wear the sterling silver domed Claddagh design in the front.
And for the reception, she could switch the necklace around and have the Cherokee feather be the focal point. There are a few more interesting details about the necklace that I would like to share with you, but you will have to wait a bit to find out more about Rebecca's necklace. So stay tuned in the weeks to come!
However, tomorrow I will be including a little sneak peek into Rebecca and Chris' wedding day.
