Bridesmaid Handmade Gift Guide 2: Jewelry

Jewelry. It’s the classic bridesmaid gift. And for good reason. Years after your wedding day, your bridesmaids will be wearing your gifts and thinking of you.

It may be traditional. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still surprise your bridesmaids with jewelry. Here are five ways to spice up that classic gift with handmade designs that they’ll treasure for years to come. {Handmade jewelry by}

Glam it up. Added sparkle can go a long way. Two or more gems and stones that usually shine on their own really make a statement when put together. {Handmade jewelry by}

Round it off. Contemporary shapes add a sleek, modern look to jewelry that easily goes from day to evening. {Handmade jewelry by}

Wear art. One-of-a-kind designs for one-of-a-kind bridesmaids. Unusual and distinctive jewelry can make your bridesmaids feel like one in a million. {Handmade jewelry by}

Modernize the materials. You aren’t limited to gems and pearls. Metal, blown glass and other materials can also be intricate and beautiful as jewelry pieces. {Handmade jewelry by}

Mix old with new. Vintage jewelry can be a personal way to thank your bridesmaids. And when paired with newer jewelry or jewelry pieces, the result can be quite unique. {Handmade jewelry by}
