Hi there, I’m Crystal! I am the hands and feet of Made Divine, an online shop that sells wedding vow holder keepsakes, silk folios and gate-fold invitation suites. The love of design has always been a part of my life since I was a little girl. I remember drawing my heart away on countless sheets of paper and sketchbooks. When I got older, I committed to my passion by obtaining my degree in Graphic Design from the Art Institute and a Certification in Commercial Art from the Art Instruction Schools. Following graduation, I worked in the field as a designer doing branding, advertising, editorial layout and web design. Like many invitation designers, the vision of Made Divine came to me while I was creating invitations and paper goods for my own wedding in 2011. I wanted to create invitations that guests would never throw away. My love for designing treasured things led me to the creation of my Etsy shop www.madedivine.etsy.com.
“Handmade by Love,” my company tagline, means I pour my heart into the products I create. I love transforming wedding items into cherished keepsakes. Each piece is handmade to order using the finest silk dupioni fabrics, genuine crystal beads and embellishments, a distinctive range of stunning metallic papers, and the highest grade of quality materials. I use traditional bookmaking techniques and with proper care your item will last for years to come. I hand press all the floral adornments on my invitation and vow holders using traditional millinery processes and equipment. I also love incorporating my hand drawn illustrations in my invitation suite designs. In addition to my shop items, I offer custom design services of products such as monograms, save-the-date cards, menu cards, seating cards, thank you cards and more. I love collaborating with clients. It’s always a joy to see their vision come to life with the touch of Made Divine. A wedding is the biggest declaration of love and is something to be cherished. I hope to create something special for you on your big day.
