Handcrafted jewelry retailer Artistic Falls (www.artisticfalls.com) has expanded its bridal wear collection with the creation of several new pieces for brides and bridesmaids. These unique, high-quality pieces build on the young company’s reputation for exceptional and provocative pieces that combine elegance, flair and just the right amount of whimsy. Based in Canada, Artistic Falls features custom, handmade jewelry that demonstrates the expert handiwork and creativity of its founder, Salwa Yak. Moreover, the company has priced its inventory to be highly competitive with brick-and-mortar establishments.
“Our bridal wear collection features elegant jewelry, perfect for life’s most cherished moments,” says Yak, who also designs all of the company’s pieces. “Each of these pieces is designed to be provocative, but not gaudy, and carefully crafted to last a lifetime.”
Artistic Falls’ initial collection of jewelry features necklaces and bracelets appropriate for a variety of occasions, from everyday wear to parties and weddings. All of the pieces consist mainly of beads, strung together in artful and unique arrangements demonstrating rich color palettes. Materials include onyx, Siam rubies, Japanese seed beads, snow quartz and art glass, along with timeless precious metals like gold and sterling silver. Artistic Falls works only with hand-selected materials of the highest quality. Semi-precious gemstones are chosen based on their consistency and dazzling, brilliant color.
The bridal wear collection’s newest pieces are made of the same impeccably crafted and high-quality materials as the rest of the Artistic Falls catalog. Featured materials include AB graded round bead gemstones, each one cut and drilled by hand; gold and silver metal beads for timeless accents; and Czech glass beads. None of the company’s jewelry contains even a trace of nickel.
Artistic Falls’ new pieces include the following necklaces and bracelets:
Black Onyx and Gold Japanese Seed Bead Necklace – Alternating black and gold beads create a striking contrast, yet pair well with traditional wedding colors.
Black Onyx and Gold Tone Beads Necklace – Similar to the Black Onyx and Gold Japanese Seed Bead piece, this necklace is all about contrast. Its versatility means it complements a variety of gown styles, and can be a signature piece at the ceremony, reception or both.
Black Onyx and Silver Tone Beads Necklace – Gleaming, textured silver tone beads are the highlight of this dramatic piece that’s been designed exclusively for a bride’s special day.
Black Onyx and Unakite Beads Necklace – The pink and green tones of unakite lend an earthy, warm quality to this 18″ princess length necklace. In the back, a black oxide toggle clasp completes the look and keeps the piece securely in place.
Black Onyx and Green Czech Bead Necklace – 6mm glass beads from the Czech Republic offer a dazzling display of color that will make an unforgettable impression on everyone at the wedding, reception or other special occasion.
Dark Travertine Bead and Gold Tone Tubes Necklace – The deep green tones of travertine highlight this elegant necklace that rests delicately at the collarbone and provides an exquisite complement to any bridal gown or bridesmaid’s dress.
Gold Tone Bead Necklace – Understated beauty and elegance are what set this gold tone bead necklace apart from the crowd. A sleek golden toggle clasp makes for a seamless overall look that’s sure to turn heads.
Red Agate and Gold Tone tubes Bracelet – Enhancing but not overwhelming the wearer’s overall style, this bracelet is distinctive enough to become part of any jewelry collection.
Red Agate and Gold Tone tubes Necklace – Timelessness and sophistication come together in this single strand, 24″ necklace with alternative red beads and gold tubes. The necklace can be purchased together with the bracelet of the same design to make a complete set.

Her long-term goal is to ensure the company has something to offer literally everyone. “My vision is for Artistic Falls to grow steadily, and I’m confident that these extraordinary custom pieces will drive that growth,” she adds. “This is my life’s work and my passion – that passion is communicated in every piece of jewelry I create. Ultimately, I want to help women everywhere feel their most beautiful.“
