Do you have a better way to accessorize yourself than with a nice piece
of jewelry? The problem is that sometimes costume jewelry can also be
extremely expensive. Nevertheless, you have another alternative to buying
them you can make them. It is easy to learn how to create your own
jewelry. And sometimes it is even better than buying them because you can
make them to match your outfits and your personality. This way you are
not only going to save money, you are also going to have fun.

Are you interested in making necklaces? The simplest way to do this is
using beads. You will see that you can create a variety of beautiful
necklaces just using some heavy string and a various beads of different
colors. In the case you are going to cover the whole circumference with
beads you may even substitute the heavy string by a dental floss. You
should always bear in mind what are you going to wear the necklace with.
This way you can compliment the color of the necklace with the color of
the dress you are wearing. Once you know the colors, you should start
thinking about the pattern, which can be achieved by alternating colors
or shapes, or making all of the beads the same size and color.

The most important thing at the moment of making your necklace is to be
creative. But you should not forget to keep the theme in mind when you
start making it. When you go to buy beads you can buy the ones you always
use plus some focal point beads that are bigger that the rest. These
bigger beads can be use when you choose to employ wire instead of string
for your necklace, just one or two beads for the whole piece are enough
and the wire show through. Usually you can choose from a great variety of
attractive beads, such as wooden, ceramic and glass pieces.

If you are thinking of making beads, you have a lot to do. You only need
beads and wire to make a great variety of rings. What you have to do is
to twist various strands of wire together making a circle that fits your
finger. You have to remember to maintain the ends long in order to string
beads on the edges. Just make a ball of wire to maintain the final bead
on each strand in its place and then keep the beaded strands as
individuals strands or twist them into a ball. And use it with whatever
you want!

Another option is to make earrings. It is not difficult because the
majority of craft stores sell earring components that can be used right
away; the only thing you have to do is add the decorations that you
choose. You can buy almost twenty pairs of earrings for no more than
three dollars. You can also include some ribbons or a strand of beads.
Just be creative and you will be able to attend any party.

Similar techniques can be used to create bracelets and anklets. You have
just to twist together bare wire and beaded wire to make a nice
combination or create attractive wire shapes with just a pair of needle-
nosed pliers. You only need to include a nice object that fits and make
some loops in the wire and create your own charm bracelet.

It does not matter whether you are a teenager or an adult, you can have a
lot of fun making jewelry. It is also a great activity for whole families
and a creative way to entertain girls at a birthday party. It is a nice
way to create the pieces of jewelry that go with the things you wear.
What is more important in creating your own jewelry is that it is a real
expression of your creative side.
