Homemade Jewelry

A year or so ago I decided I wanted to learn how to make jewelry. I bought a basics book, some necessary supplies and set to work. I can’t tell you how incredibly easy it really is. I mean really really easy. And so much cheaper than buying from Claire’s or something. And the best part? When you find an awesome shirt like this:

You don’t have to search high and low for jewelry that matches. You just buy some beads and make it:

Carved cinnabar, blue dyed howlite and silver plated spirals.

Or say you have a lovely shirt like this:

Dress it up with a homemade necklace:

Freshwater pearls of assorted size and hue, faux lapiz lazuli and aventurine

I have been thinking for a long time I needed to try making jewelery because I love it, I just don’t want to spend tons of money to accessorize. Thanks for your links. Your jewelery is so beautiful - you are so artistic!!! :biggrin:

Very nice! Although, do you really find it cheaper? I made a LOT of jewelry (the kind that was popular 10 years ago) and I got so fed up with the cost of beads. I finally just decided that it was cheaper to buy jewelry. Are you finding a significant savings? Like what would you estimate that those necklaces cost you?

Those are beautiful! I love the blue shirt, AND the necklace you made to go with it. I’ve been thinking about trying some jewelry…you make it sound so easy! Thanks for sharing your beautiful designs. :biggrin:
