Default Suggestions for Jewerly and bead types for bridesmaids and bride

Ok so my niece is getting married next spring and I am going to be making the Jewerly for her bridesmaids and her as well. I'm looking for suggestions for elegant beads that I can make that will tie into her colors once she decides on those but that the girls can also wear after the wedding too.

Any suggestions would be welcome. I am a new it so complicated would not be for me lol

These are the color options for the bridesmaids and the dress styles being considered

Looks like you will have a beautiful color pallet to choose from. I did a quick search on etsy for lampwork bridal jewelry and there were a lot of results that might be inspirational.

The white beads are lovely and you could accent with the bride's colors.

I made my dichro and CZ center encased florals for my bridesmaids. My colors were purple and blue so I made beads with blue flowers on a purple background. You could use white for the bride and make the bridesmaid's in her colors.

On fb somewhere I saw some beads that were a pale transparent with silver wire decor and then they were either tumbled or etched. Super elegant looking.

Maybe a clear, colorless core, roll in a strip of silver foil, then case with a very pale color of transparent. Glitzy without being in your face.

If you tumble, you will likely lose some of the silver beads. Ask me how I know...

Have you thought about making bellflowers? The press is really expensive though.
