10 Things You Swoon Over with Aisling Nelson

We have Irish jewelry designer, Aisling Nelson, of the lovely jewelry shop, Rangoli, stopping by this week to share with us the 10 things that inspires her.

Aisling is well-known in the wedding sphere for her one-of-a-kind wedding hair accessories and jewelry. Each intricate piece is carefully crafted by weaving thin wires, beads, and precious stones. When you get a chance, do check out her blog and her website. Her work is definitely eye-candy!

Here are 10 things that inspires Aisling:

1. Imagination – We all need a little magic in our lives. Close your eyes and you can go anywhere!
