Jewelry for your wedding party doesn’t have to be expensive when you can try your hand at making some yourself! With this simple DIY, you can create special pieces for you and your bridesmaids to cherish long after the wedding.

Supplies: 2 Brass Headpins (found in the jewelry section of most craft stores) • 2 Brass Kidney Wires (found in the jewelry section of most craft stores) • Stone faceted beads (Etsy.com under supplies, is a great resource to by small quantities of stone beads) • Jewelry wire cutters • Needle nose jewelry pliers • Round nose jewelry pliers


Step One. Slip the headpin through the drilled hole in the bead.  Position the round nose pliers and clamp down just above the bead.

Step Two. Clamp down on the headpin wire above the bead, and push the headpin wire to a 90 degree angle away from you.

Step Three. Clamp the round nose pliers at the edge of the bent piece and wrap the wire around the needle nose pliers.

Step Four. Push the wire all the way around the end of the needle nose plier to create a circle loop.

Step Five. Use the needle nose pliers to hold onto the loop, and wrap the wire around the piece just above the bead to close the loop.

Step Six. Using the wire cutters, cut the remaining leftover wire as close to the wire wrapped loop as possible.

Step Seven. After you trim the leftover wire, slip in onto the bottom of the kidney wire.

Step Eight. Replace the back piece of the kidney wire, and you are all set with some easy-to-make jewelry for your wedding party!

    When I first saw this title DIY Wednesday: Kidney Wire Stone Drop Earrings – Project Wedding Blog on google I just whent and bookmark it. Thanks for your posting. Another item is that being a photographer entails not only difficulty in capturing award-winning photographs and also hardships in acquiring the best dslr camera suited to your requirements and most especially struggles in maintaining the caliber of your camera. This can be very genuine and noticeable for those photography fans that are directly into capturing the particular nature’s fascinating scenes the mountains, the particular forests, the wild or even the seas. Going to these exciting places absolutely requires a dslr camera that can live up to the wild’s unpleasant settings.
