Preserve a piece of your outdoor wedding site in a necklace #Fashion DIY#DIY#jewelry#superficial snack May 23 2013 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Used with permission from Stars for Streetlights Stacie at Stars for Streetlights came up with a rad way to preserve a little piece of your ceremony site: use some local rocks to craft up a necklace! Or you could use some rocks from a meaningful place and wear it to the wedding itself. What you'll need to create this necklace: Rocks Leather or fabric scraps Seed beads Embroidery thread A strong glue like Aleene's 7800 Adhesive Then you have some gluing, blanket stitching, and a few hours of Firefly reruns to get you through it. I'll let Stacie explain all the details here. The best part of a project like this is that it can totally scale to your time and resources. Small rocks/sea glass/shells = smaller time commitment.

Don't forget to make sure it's ok to take something from the site! Some sites have LTN (Leave No Trace) policies: leave only footprints, take only pictures!
