Easy DIY Jewelry

Are you intimidated by jewelry making? I am! Or rather I was; after reading through these post (links below) I really think I can do it! Now I just have to find the time.






Bracelet Tutorial

Simply lovely!  I have a seven year old that would love to make this for mom for Mother's Day! Yes a seven year old made this, you can too! Find the DIY how to's at The DIY Dreamer.



This sweet little ribbon bracelet is charming! Bowdabra Blog has a very good tutorial and it looks very easy. I know I could make this one.


Bowdabra Blog also made this Beaded Pearl Bracelet. Pretty! 


How to make hemp bracelets with beads and crochet chain stitch.

This one is really fun yet still simple to make. Head over to The Jewelry Making Journal for instructions.


Chain Bead Earrings Tutorial

Look at these ear rings! Simple and elegant, and again, The DIY Dreamer has a wonderful tutorial to show you the steps.


Charm Holder Pendant Tutorial by Rena Klingenberg

This one is harder, but look at how beautiful!  It only takes a few learned skills to accomplish it and will find the tutorials for the necessary skills at The Jewelry Making Journal. Well worth learning! 


Grungy graduation year jewelry by Rena Klingenberg

Any pre-teen or teen will love this type of jewelry and you will be a hit with them if you learn how to make it. Actually  I would like to have some of this myself and can think of several ways to use this idea in crafting other than jewelry. This necklace uses the technique of stamping the metal and I really want to learn to do it! Perhaps I could buy the necessary tools for hubbs as a gift....hmmm..;) He needs a new hobby!
