Here at FDD, the goal of our founder and lead designer, Randie McConnell, has always been to create elegant custom jewelry and accessory designs that make every woman who enters our studio sparkle and shine in her own unique fashion. But first we need to dispel any misguided notion that FDD’s lustrous strands of pearls, clusters of brilliant gemstones and scads of shimmering Swarovski crystals are luxuries that only the well-heeled bride-to-be or the well-to-do ladies who lunch can afford. Nothing could be further from the truth! At FDD, the opportunity to make a stunning and personal fashion statement is accessible to every woman, whether she plans to wear her works of art walking down the aisle, climbing the corporate ladder, sipping cocktails on girls’ night out or dazzling her significant other on date night.
Now that we’ve cleared up that misconception and have reassured you that a piece (or two or three!) from FDD’s collections is an affordable and well-deserved indulgence, the inevitable question arises. Where do I begin? The answer couldn’t be easier! Simply traipse your stylish self into our new location at Be More Inspired Wedding Studio or call 410.879.9925 to schedule your private consultation. Then round up pictures of key wardrobe pieces, or even your Pinterest boards, and prepare to spend some memorable moments in our studio wrapping yourself in the glamour of over 75 drawers of gemstones, pearls and Swarovski crystals in every imaginable cut and color. It’s pure heaven, we know!
And whether your fun time of personal discovery results in freshwater pearls curled seductively around your wrist, Swarovski crystals flirtatiously swinging from your ears or accenting your sexy updo, a rhinestone and crystal-encrusted belt accentuating the waist of your little black dress, or avant-garde jewels dramatically adorning your neck, one eventuality is certain. No matter where you are coming from or where you are heading, you will leave FDD in breathtaking custom creations that reflect the confident sparkle of a woman who has truly arrived.
