Give Any Wedding a Personal Touch with Handmade Beaded Wedding Jewelry

Jun 22, 2012

More and more couples are choosing to add very personal touches to their weddings. Going beyond just picking that song for your first dance as husband and wife, it really is the little details that count when planning the perfect wedding.

And that includes what to wear! Whether you're the bride, a member of the bridal party, or the mother of the bride (or groom!), choosing the perfect beaded wedding jewelry for your wedding ensemble is a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your wedding plans.

The best part of making your own handmade beaded wedding jewelry is that you can choose any colors, materials, or style that you want to make it your own. Beaded wedding jewelry makes a wonderful gift for your bridal party, too! If you choose to make your own beaded wedding jewelry with classic beads like pearls and crystals, you just might find yourself wearing your wedding jewelry for other special occasions, too.

We've put together five beautiful beaded bridal jewelry projects for you to give you some inspiration for designing and making your own handmade beaded wedding jewelry.

  • Mix chain and rich-looking glass beads in Melinda Barta's Beauty and Grace, a beaded necklace that works for bridal party jewelry as well as mother of the bride jewelry!
  • Make a statement with Janie Warnick's Keishi Pearl Bracelet: it starts out as an easy band of peyote stitch and becomes a magnificent bridal accessory with the addition of a handful of freshwater pearls.
  • Crystal beads and pearl beads are wedding jewelry staples, and you'll make a splash with Gabrielle Neijman's Sweet Starbursts necklace. Mix easy crystal clusters attached to a square stitch base with two strands of seed beads that encircle lovely crystal pearls.
  • For a vintage wedding jewelry look, try Cheryl Assemi's Festive Jewels. This necklace is a classic mixture of crystals, fire polished beads, and marcasite spacers.
  • Whether you're planning a spring wedding or just want to wear your flowers on your wrist, Nadiya Pakosh's Pearl Flower Bracelet will be just the thing! Delicate and sophisticated pearl clusters attached to a base made with shimmering bugle beads.

Love these pieces, especially Janie Warnick's keshi pearl bracelet.  Can't wait to make it (I got some keshi pearls last winter at a jewelry show in Orlando and haven't used them yet.  Thanks so much for all the great "freebies"!
