I got married last May, and I wanted something totally different than the ordinary run-of-the-mill wedding jewlery, so I made the necklace myself.

Here's the necklace on me. Sorry it's not a good detail.

Some of the beads I used are natural and swarovski crystals, pearls, quartz nuggets, and silver beads.
I used a lot of beads that I bought from Thai Gem: http://www.thaigem.com

It's a great website for unique beads. The only downfall is that you pay about 10 bucks to ship from Thailand.

This is awesome!  I'm usually not a fan of "chunky" jewely, but after seeing the photo of it being worn I love this.  What is the "shape" of the crystal beads that make up the actual necklace, not the pendant part?  It looks great with your dress (or what I can see of it Wink ).

You have inspired me to make my own bridal jewelry (whether or not I wear it will depend how it turns out!)  I'll probably try some bead crochet with thread or wire.

Pretty necklace--thanks for sharing!

The quartz crystals in the actual necklace part are polished nugget shaped... so they're all slightly different.

Aww. THANKS! I've wanted to wear it for other occasions, I just haven't had the chance to wear it again yet.  Smiley
I also made the jewelry for my bridesmaids. I wish that I made one of their necklaces for myself... cos I love them so much.
