Friday’s Favorite: Cute as a button: RBK Creations

This week’s Friday’s Favorite was featured as part of the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show I had up on the blog in March and April. I chose to feature RBK Creations again as they have begun selling necklaces that showcase their beautiful flower work as well as their vintage inspired aesthetic. “Brenda and Ariela from RBK Creations are an extremely talented mother and daughter design duo: “Brenda (the mother) and Ariela (the daughter) have worked with brides all over the world to add a whimsical touch to their big day. The storefront on Etsy was launched in August 2008. RBK offers a wide variety of bouquets, boutonnieres, décor and accessories for all types of brides. Brenda and Ariela can create something for everyone in the bridal party. Each piece can also be customized to the bride’s choice of colors. There are many varieties available including: buttons, felt, satin and organza.” -http://rbkcreations.com/about/
