DIY Jewelry Tutorials

Over the past few years I have found that I enjoy making jewelry more and more.  Normally, I would prefer to draw and paint, but sometimes there isn’t enough time, or there is too much stress for me to be able to sit down and enjoy it to it’s fullest.  Handmade jewelry helps me to unwind and relax.  It is to me what knitting or crocheting is to a lot of people: just a nice relaxing thing to do while watching tv after a long day.  I usually work on jewelry projects in between art projects.

As I make more and more jewelry using all sorts of materials, I realized that it deserves it’s own section on our website.  Here it is!  Here you will find various DIY jewelry tutorials with lots of photos.  I hope that you can enjoy making some of these projects yourself!!!

Earrings

Earrings can be a lot of fun to make.  They are usually a quick thing for me.  For now there are just a few tutorials here, but I will add many more as I go.  Usually I use beads, but you can use feathers, wire, fimo clay, and much more.

Bracelets

Bracelets are so much fun to make.  Beaded ones are always nice, but I enjoy using different sort of materials for my bracelets: felt, leather, recycled stuff.  The possibilities are endless!

Necklaces are probably my favorite type of jewelry to make.  I like that they can me as minimal or as elaborate and loud as you want.
