DIY Bridesmaid Jewelry

November 16th, 2011 · 12 Comments

Learn how to make jewelry that your bridesmaids will be proud to wear again and again! Here’s what I made for my big day back in October. I chose colors that were complementing to an autumn backdrop—chocolate brown and cream—for their dresses.

For the jewelry I wanted to keep it classy but a little more fun, so I went with Swarovski round crystal pearlsin cream and dark brown matched with warm gold jewelry components. Each bridesmaid received a necklace, bracelet and pair of earrings with matching patterns.

You can easily make your own bridesmaid jewelry and present it as your bridal gift to them on the night of your rehearsal! The best part about making your own bridesmaid jewelry is that it can look exactly how you want.

    Your jewelry was really beautiful. It went really well with the bridesmaids dresses. I loved all the dresses by the way. Did you make your necklace also. Great job! Congratulations!

    Thank you so much, Dawn! My necklace was actually my “something old” and was a jewelry set passed down to me. It is made from silver and crystals.

    Awww Marissa, congratulations dear! Love the chocolate brown pearls… the style of the necklaces were perfect for pictures too. There was no pendant to hang askew when trying to capture a group photo! LOL

    [...] I’ve been married for a little over a year now, but with wedding season just around the corner, I wanted to remind all of the brides to be that going DIY doesn’t mean you can’t be elegant. Last time, I shared how I made the jewelry for my bridesmaids using Swarovski round crystal pearls and rondelles, accented by gold jewelry components. You can have an assortment of fancy beads, but the key to pulling off the right look is all about balance. Above is a close-up of my bridesmaid’s jewelry, but you can read more about how I made the sets here. [...]
