Ever think of making your own bridal jewelry? Elisabeth Engelhart, our art editorial assistant, made this stunner for only $6! The beads look and feel like faceted marbles, and I just loved their swirled blue color. Inexpensive and absolutely gorgeous--this is definitely a DIY do.
And wouldn't a jewelry-making sesh with your favorite girls be a great bachelorette party activity? Everyone could make their accessories for your big day. For another DIY necklace idea, click here and here.
