Fashions may fluctuate over the decades, but “old Hollywood glamour” never goes out of style. Even young starlets of today are always aspiring to achieve the timeless elegance of revered actresses like Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, and other idols of the past. Get the classic elegance of these immortal style icons for yourself with these old-Hollywood-esque DIY jewelry designs! From sophisticated pearl pieces to sparkling crystal projects, these dazzling jewelry DIYs will have you feeling fit for the silver screen of yesteryear.
Every girl dreams of being a princess, and the Grace Kelly Woven Bracelet is just what you need to make your fashion fantasies come true. The former Princess of Monaco is still revered today as one of the most beautiful and refined starlets of all time, so why not infuse your own wardrobe with a bit of “princess power” by replicating this lovely bracelet pattern?
If there’s any old Hollywood icon associated with glamorous jewelry, it’s Elizabeth Taylor, and one can almost imagine these Sparkly Fishbone Earrings fitting in with the famous fashionista’s acclaimed collection. With shimmering fishtail chain and faceted jewel tone crystals, these ultra-elegant earrings are sure to catch the light (and the eyes of admirers) every way you turn.
Audrey Hepburn shall reign eternally supreme as one of the most charming and classic beauties ever to grace the silver screen, and what’s the first thing you think of when you hear her name? Pearls, of course! The Audrey Hepburn Knotted Necklace has all the sophistication of the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star’s signature pearls but with some added quirk and personality, much like Miss Hepburn herself.
Is there any woman more glamorous than Marilyn Monroe? With a personality as sparkly as her accessories, Miss Monroe still serves as style inspiration for girls today. After all, it was the stunning starlet herself who crooned in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, “Diamond’s are a girl’s best friend!” This Sparkle and Stardust Bracelet may not be made with real diamonds, but it seems glitzy and glamorous enough to have adorned the blonde bombshell’s wrist back in the day, and now you can make it for yourself!
