Hey, loves! Emma here. Have you seen / pined over a trendy signature necklace yet? Then you’re going to love today’s post because we’re telling you how to make a signature necklace of your very own! One of the latest trends in jewelry is the signature necklace: a truly one-of-a-kind jewelry piece created from your actual handwriting. Signature jewelry (with necklaces at the forefront because layering is so in right now) is a beautiful way to capture a loved one’s handwriting and wear it as a special keepsake piece.
Andrew made me a signature necklace a few years ago and it said “love” in his writing. There’s something incredibly sweet about wearing a piece of jewelry in the handwriting of your husband. And I love to wear my signature necklace as a daily layering piece.
A signature necklace is becoming a trend for grooms to surprise the bride with on the big day: we’ve seen the signature necklace in everything from “bride” to “mrs” to “forever” or “my love”; you can even use “Mrs” with her new last name.
We’ve also seen the signature necklace made for the bride from the signature of a loved one they have lost, such as a father, grandfather, or close friend. It is sad to be without a special someone on your big day; a signature necklace is one way to honor a loved one whom has passed and include his or her memory on your wedding day. We’ve even seen brides make a signature necklace with a loved one’s handwriting, “love”, or “xo” and wrapped it around their bouquet to carry down the aisle. After the wedding, it can be worn as a jewelry piece.
Besides the signature necklace being a gift for the bride, it also makes a beautiful gift given by the bride to her mother, father, or bridesmaids. The signature necklace doesn’t necessarily need to be a signature, obviously; it can be handwritten with anything (i.e. “love you mama”, “forever your little girl”, or a cute nickname) are a few examples we’ve seen.
Now that you know why a signature necklace is so popular and why it makes a special gift, here’s how to make a signature necklace of your very own. And you don’t even need any DIY jewelry knowledge here! Just a signature & a camera.
