Vendor Spotlight: JEM Design


I am a dreamer...Just as every wedding is unique, so are each one of my clutches.  Every creation has a story behind it followed by a happy ending. I love the idea of being part of such an important celebration.

My mother is a custom seamstress in Peru. I learned from her. I have been sewing as far back as I can remember.  I lived in Argentina for 11 years & I learned the art of hand sewing there.  I had my little factory.  I made a little bit of everything from lingerie & baby clothes to hoodies…  After I moved to the U.S. to marry my best friend, and had my beautiful babies, I stopped doing what I loved (sewing). Thankfully, I could not help myself and I found the way to get back to my old love, this time with a new challenge: clutches.



I was working with a bride with a custom order for her and her bridesmaids.  She knew what she wanted from the beginning so it was a pleasure to work for her.   She was so pleased with her order than she invited me to her wedding!  What can be more rewarding than that?! ... It still makes me smile every time I think of it.
