If you are anything like me planning your DIY/Handmade Wedding, the thought of buying yours and your bridesmaid's jewelry in a chain store just isn't doing it for ya. The mass produced, cheap products will likely be worn once or fall apart. I made my own necklace and bracelet for my wedding as well as necklaces for my bridesmaids but I wanted to buy their earrings. It crossed my mind to buy them at Ardene's because of cost efficiency, but my fiance helped to remind me that these products are mass produced very cheaply in China and have no thoughtful meaning behind them. Greg (my fiance) told me, "Since the rest of our wedding is handmade why don't you spend a couple dollars extra and buy handmade earrings on Etsy for your bridesmaids." And that is just what I did, you will later see features from those sellers, but today I would like to tell you about another seller that has jewelry pieces suitable for a Handmade Wedding.

Here is a lovely Etsy seller who makes handmade and custom jewelry pieces. I met BijiBijoux (a.k.a Mimi) on an Etsy forum. Etsy can be quite competitive with all of the jewelry sellers but once I saw BijiBijoux's jewelry I knew that she made great pieces as could be seen in the creativity and work put into her items. She told me that she has many items in her shop suitable for a wedding as she makes pearl jewelry. I asked Mimi to tell me about her shop and this is what she said:

I've been creating jewelry pieces for over 2 years. I started out showing my work at local art shows and have been so encouraged by the response that I've decided to branch out online. I specialize in designing jewelry pieces including necklaces, matching earrings, bracelets, and anklets. I love to work with high-quality glass beads and Swarovski crystals. I also use gemstones, freshwater pearls, and wood in my creations.

If you are interested in purchasing your wedding jewelry from BijiBijoux you would be making a great choice, she has 100% positive feedback from all her sales and if you would like a custom order just contact her and tell her what you are looking for for your wedding. Here are some of her great handmade wedding items!

If you are not a pearl kind of girl, you can browse the shop and find many other gorgeous items that match your wedding colour scheme. Here are a few other items that would be just perfect with your creative wedding!
