Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

Weddings are sugar, spice and all things nice. They’re supposed to be, anyway. But what if your bridesmaids are not the flowery romantic type? Sure, they acquiesced to adorn the petunia pink concoction that your future mother-in-law insists is the perfect dress. They’re doing it only because they love you (and you know too many indelicate stories from their college days). But you don’t have to torture your rock-and-roll buddies with a syrupy bridesmaid gift. Opt instead for something from Silvio Hidalgo (www.hidalgojewelry.com).

Hidalgo’s latest collection features animal themes on rings and bracelets made in 18k gold, enamel and diamonds. They’re available in over 20 hues with paw prints, dog breeds and horses. Your maids-in-waiting don’t have to be animal lovers to fall in love with these unique designs.

Or you might prefer to give something handmade for your handmaids. How about leather, to offset all the lace of the day? Bad Dog Couture (www.BadDogCouture.us) custom makes leather leashes and collars. They can be encrusted with studs and crystals. Or you can get a bag or belt instead. Be sure to give a call in advance so it will be ready for your big day. A percentage of Bad Dog Couture’s profits go to local animal charities.
