I received a box full of little car parts, most of which I had no idea what they even were. While Matt was making his amazing dress I started laying out different design ideas with them.
One of the challenges of working with found, unknown items is you never know if they are going to solder together or not. It was a lot of experimentation. Translation: a whole lot of fun and little bit of frustration.
Shining up the parts.
Making the bail out of sterling silver.
The finished pieces!
A true "cuff!"
The Charity Preview was incredible! Everywhere Ashlee went people would swarm her to ask about the dress and touch it.

Lights, camera, action!
Headlights from the car meet headlights from the dress.
Hanging out at the studios afterwards. So much fun!
