Meet Your Bridal Jewelry Designer And Two Be Wed Jewelry

Bridal Jewelry Designer Noelle Kostraba


I’m Noelle, I have been designing luxury bridal jewelry since 2008. I am looking forward to working with you to create your dream bridal jewelry.

I started creating “jewelry” at the age of 4 when I would use my grandmother’s spools and shoe laces. She would proudly wear my creations around the house when I was there. When I was about 6, she took me to her friends bead shop in Gig Harbor, WA. I still remember when I walked in, just standing there in awe seeing all the sparkles! She let me pick out a handful of crystals and pearls to make a bracelet. That’s when I knew what I wanted to do for a living but it took a while to get here.

When I couldn’t find anything just right for my own wedding, it was so disappointing. The simpler pieces were so run-of-the-mill and not very unique. The sparkly pieces were too over-done for my taste. Most of the bridal jewelry I was seeing was cheaply plated, base metal, definitely not the quality I was looking for. This was my WEDDING! I have metal allergies and I not only wanted but needed higher quality jewelry for my wedding (and throw in some sparkles, please). This got me thinking. If I am having such a hard time finding high quality bridal jewelry, I bet others are too.

I decided to make my own bridal jewelry and had a wonderful instructor that I took classes from for two years on the weekends. I owned a salon and in between clients, I was working on my jewelry. My nail clients started to take notice, commissioning me to design pieces for their weddings. The orders were coming in and I was having so much more fun designing custom bridal jewelry. I would see a photo of their dress and design the pieces to match.

I made a huge, risky decision to pass on some of my morning nail clients to other nail techs in my salon. This enabled me to spend time doing/building- up what I really loved. Finally, I decided to sell my salon. I was determined to put everything I had into my new passion. When I started this journey, I realized that designing jewelry and doing nails definitely requires the same skill set. Artistic ability, design skills, patience, excellent communication and a slight case of OCD. This is your wedding, it has to be perfect, I get it.


Purchasing your bridal and bridesmaid’s jewelry should be easy and even fun! You have the option of purchasing the whole jewelry set or separate pieces from the set. On each page there is a search bar so you can search the name of the collection you like and all the options for that set will come up.

Every piece of jewelry can be customized, meaning the crystal color, the pearl color and the length. The link to the Swarovski crystal and pearl color chart is in the the bottom menu. I also use Preciosa crystals and pearls if the Swarovski shade isn’t quite right. You can see for yourself what crystal and pearl colors compliment each other and your color palette. I have collaborated with thousands of brides through drawings, photos and phone calls to create their dream jewelry.


Only the finest materials available, such as genuine Swarovski and Preciosa crystals and pearls are considered for your jewelry designs. All chains, clasps and earring wires are SOLID sterling silver to avoid metal allergies. Many women have nickel allergies, around 12%. Your wedding is not the time to find out if one of your Bridesmaids does, when during your ceremony, she is feverishly scratching her ears!  This is why quality matters most for a Bridesmaid’s jewelry gift. I personally, would want to give my best friends, the women who have always been there for me, a jewelry gift worthy of their friendship.


Anything worn for a wedding acquires sentimental value. My designs are truly heirloom quality, to be handed down to future brides, as a family keepsake. This is why I created Two Be Wed Jewelry, for brides who want to wear quality bridal jewelry that will last lifetimes and express their gratitude for friendships by giving their bridesmaids the very best.

Bridal jewelry becomes an heirloom, from the first bride who wears it. A precious piece of the past, handed down from generation to generation. Starting with your own wedding, you can begin your own family tradition with the quality bridal jewelry that future brides will be honored to wear.

I will give you excellent customer service and personal attention to detail. I have found that creating a custom piece through email is sometimes not conducive to the design process. Please feel free to contact me with your phone number and a good time to call you back to discuss your design plans. I ask for your phone number on your order form ONLY in case a question needs an answer right away.
