Once upon a time, I decided to go out into the world and find me some decent jewelry. Hair ties are fun, but sometimes you feel the need for something a little more special. While strolling through stores, I was overcome by grief over how limiting my choices were and how uninspired I felt. That was precisely the day I decided I was going to make my very own DIY jewelry! A few days into my productive workshop, I had a while selection of unique collectables (that could be worn), and only minor injuries.
You will find DIY jewelry incredibly fun as you get picked up by a new wave of creativity, but mind you, the journey is potentially a dangerous one.
The following are supplies I used when I was making my jewelry, so scout around the house to see if you can find anything that will be useful, such as: hammers, screwdrivers, pliers, bolts, sandpaper, copper wire, copper sheets and anything else that catches your eye. No, we will not be making bird houses or any of the like. This is standard DIY jewelry materials so you might want to take a trip to the hardware store. You’ll find yourself surrounded by all sorts of inspiration and useful materials. After you visit the hardware store, you might want to consider going to one of the legitimate ‘DIY jewelry stores’ for the usual shopping list.
Here is a selection of projects for you to choose from when you decide to take a creative break this week and challenge yourself in your artistic endeavours:
This is one of the most known and ingenious. It takes a little time, but you can say with pride you made this necklace and you didn’t buy it in the typical costume jewelry stores.
Bracelets of wire and pearls
As we know, the pearls are part of the main materials for this year, so I found a tutorial very easy to do. The advantage is that the pearls can be real or false. I don’t understand why I didn’t think about this before.
It’s easy enough that it will take you about 20 minutes. They are simple, but very beautiful.
This tutorial is so simple, that it doesn’t need explanation. Have you considered using buttons for beautiful earrings? You will never see your buttons in the same way.
Be bold, bright and colorful with this statement necklace. It’s beautiful! 😉
Necklace with beads
Yes! Beads are also present. This is one of those tutorials that can be done with basic things like pliers.
The use of several rings on all the fingers is a trend that has accompanied us over the last 3 years. This tutorial is perfect for girls who want these rings with the ideal measurement.
Necklace with flowers
This necklace is very comfortable and one of the easiest to make. We need to keep in mind that spring is coming and it will be very helpful to have something with flowers motifs.
This is a bit complicated and I would only recommend it to people with experience in this area. These are rings made with forks, knives and spoons. I think it’s wonderful idea.
Shrinky dink Jewelry
This is one of the best ways to create something with your own designs. You can make from pendants to rings. It’s very easy, fast and beautiful!
The internet is swarming with DIY jewelry tutorials of all sorts. I have chosen some of the most creative, innovative and fun ones for you to try. Enjoy your day and see you next!
