So you have everything for your wedding day but cannot find those earrings then why not make some yourself so you can design the way you want. You can choose color or beads or even use some beads from an old piece of jewelry. I love these dangle vintage earrings they are so elegant but yet so easy to make. While you are at it why not make some out of different color for the bridesmaids too. The nice thing is you can use these again and again. Alot more affordable than buying some high dollar ones.

Very pretty and very easy. I make and sell jewelry and I can recommend this project to anyone, even a beginner. The only suggestion I can add is if the cost of Swarovski crystals scares you, try Czech Crystal or glass faceted beads. They are just as pretty , a lot cheaper and you aren't paying for the name. No one will know the difference.
