I am so happy I got these done in time to gift them tonight!
It’s all sterling silver and swarovski pearls and crystals. The tote bags are super cute, I bought them on eBay for about $10 each I think. The seller used the font I sent her too which was really great (Feel script) and then I attached the swarovski hotfix crystals around the initials. I made the tags myself as well using embossed card stock and ribbon. I put the jewelry into white cotton filled gift boxes and wrapped then in ribbon. I put pink tissue paper in the tote bags to make them stand up. I wish I had gotton a better photo of the tote bags. They were such a steal! I got one for myself in pink but I like the black ones with pink letters better.
I took a jewelry making class at the beginning of the year specifically to make jewelry for my wedding. It was really worth it! It’s so much easier for me when I take a class rather than just watch tutorials on youtube, even though there are some really good ones. I am also going to make their necklaces but we’re waiting to see which neckline they choose for their bridesmaid dresses.

Oh my goodness, we are both in South Florida, and we are date twins! I love that bracelet. I have been planning on doing Swarvoski pearls and clear bicones for my necklaces. I love the bracelet so much that I may have to add that to my list of jewelry to make. Thanks for the inspiration. Where are you getting married?

Hehe, thank you! The jewelry class was really worth it!
@ eggman9091 Hello!!! 🙂 I am getting married at The Rusty Pelican! I wanted to do Ft. Lauderdale but the prices and inclusives at The Rusty Pelican are the best, PLUS it’s sooooooooooooo gorgeous there!
Be sure to check out golden shadow/shade and silver shadow/shade, which are clear with a tiny tiny bit of tint, I think they add a lot of dimension to the sparkle. I like beadaholique on amazon.
