Bridal Jewelry for Fall Weddings

Did you know that September and October are fabulous months for weddings? Part of the attraction is that weather isn’t blistering hot – but also that wedding venues and honeymoon destinations can cost less, beginning sometime in September. It’s nice to have a beautiful wedding – and save money too 🙂

It’s cool to save money on your wedding jewelry, too. The earring designs show here are beautifully coordinated for the bride and her bridesmaids. The bridal earrings shown here have sparke – and they’re lightweight too, so they’re comfortable! Such an important plus on your wedding day.

Black and white glass jewels – for great DIY jewelry!

If you want to make jewelry that is always going to be in style, black and white jewelry components are for you. They’re great in winter, fabulous in summer, look good with most colors, and are clean and modern. They work!

Any of these jewels would work on their own, “as is”, for easy and attractive pendants or earrings. Or combine them – black with white, both with one other color – you get the idea. Customize your jewelry and save money by doing it yourself. And your jewelry will look GOOD!

How to make earrings – basics!

I thought, maybe once in a while we should show the absolute basics on how to make earrings. Like so many things, it’s easy once you know. But you might never have looked closely at the little connectors, etc, so it’s still a mystery. Well – now it won’t be. You can create some fabulous jewelry with this simple technique. (Or go as fancy and complicated as you want, that’s the beauty of it!)
