Yes, I am doing their earings and necklaces. I have 6 girls, and these took me 30 minutes per set and cost 12$ per girl instead of $40+ if I bought them.

I did my BMs jewelry.  They are wearing black, so I wanted to incorporate some color.

I’m now working on my jewelry.  I just finished my necklace today (may still tweak on it though):

The cost is minimal and I love doing it.  I was able to get pearls and crystals that exactly matched the beading in my dress. I think each BM set was about $5 in materials and about 1 hour of time (including trial and error in design).

@Essa:  Thanks guys! I really loved making them and I’m excited for my girls to wear them. I hope they like them. I love pearls and crystals too and found some great supplies in bulk on etsy. The rest (like the clasps, wire, etc) I found locally for very cheap. PS. Sorry the pics are so huge! You can see details of my skin, ew.

How hard was it for you guys to learn how to make jewelry? I’ve been thinking about trying it for fun.

@tmsing:  I took up jewelry making in high school – mostly beading. Then I didn’t touch it until the wedding and I thought “Hey I can make that for less. Let me try”.

Beading is really simple as long as you can pay attention to detail and have the right pliers and findings (the little “beads and such that seal off the ends, keep clasps in place, etc). Mostly learning the lingo takes the most time. If you have a supply store go ask them what you will need for what you want to make. Theya re usually very helpful.

@thatredheadedbride:  I found necklaces for my girls with their birthstones so i bought those but I am making sashes for the girls.

I bought champgne satin and will sow 4 sashes. Then put lace applaques on and add rhine stones and tulle flowers on top.

I am planning to start on it in the next two weeks and will try to post photos.
