Jewellery is something that the majority of people wear and give to
others. It's also something that can be valuable or very inexpensive.
Those who enjoy art and creation may really enjoy crafting their own
jewellery. This can be done quite easily and only requires patience and
time. Most craft stores and even the craft section of your local
department store will have everything you need to get started in
jewellery design.
Beads are incredibly fun and easy to work with. They come in so many
sizes, shapes and colours. Select a sturdy string that is made for bead
work before you get started. Measure it prior to beginning to ensure that
it will be the appropriate size for what you are making. Beads can also
be bought in letters or numbers so you can customize certain pieces using
names or nicknames. Small beads can easily get lost though so take care
to store them in a container they will be safe in.
Everyone loves a charm bracelet. Collecting various charms to hang from
your bracelet is fun and gives you something to work toward. Create a
themed bracelet such as bugs where each charm is a different bug. This
can be done for any topic of your choosing. It makes a great gift idea
for friends with certain interests. Charms can be bought at craft stores
or ordered special online.
Making a beautiful pair of earrings isn't as difficult as it might sound.
Start with empty fish hook earrings and an assortment of pieces that slip
right on. You should be able to find these items along with the rest a t
your favourite craft store. Additional pieces can be purchased from a
number of great craft sites online.
Small glass vials make fantastic necklaces. You can put all sorts of
little trinkets inside them before sealing the top and hanging it on a
strip of leather or a chain. Be creative and let your imagination guide
you. Everything from charms to small pictures or trinkets can be secured
in a vial to hang around the neck.
You might be surprised to discover the fantastic places that you can
order a great supply of gems and stones from. Ordering authentic gems
from places like China can save you exceptional amounts when it comes to
the exchange rate. You can then use the gems to fit into rings, necklaces
or whatever you wish.
If making jewellery is something that you are interested in, be sure to
get a tool kit as well. A tool kit that's made for jewellery will come
with things like wire clippers, pliers and earring backings. After
creating your jewellery, share with friends or consider selling it
online. Many people make decent money by selling their wares on eBay or
through their own website. You might be surprised how quickly jewellery
sales can take off.
Making jewellery allows you to create beautiful wares that can be worn
over and over. Even if it's just for you, home made jewellery is a hobby
that comes with its own reward.
