Do you like making jewelry, but does it sometimes come out looking a little too handmade and cheap? I know mine does sometimes, And I always feel so disappointed when I work on something for hours and end up never wearing it. I rounded up some great tutorials for making amazingly stylish jewelry that will have all your friends asking you where you bought it.
DIY Gold-Plated Earrings
Aren’t these just gorgeous? I absolutely love them, and the tutorial is a lot easier than you might think looking at this photo. Kim from Made in a Day lays it all out perfectly for you, and has included the tutorial for the bowl as well.
Make Boho Chic Earrings
These little beaded hoops look so good, and are not too difficult to make yourself. You can choose hoops in many different colours, and the variations in types and colours of beads is endless too. Find out more at the Premium Jewelry Blog.
Make Your Own Copper Wire Beads
When you make these well I think they can look amazing on a necklace or bracelet. You can just put on a few of these, or add in a pendant or something. And you could vary in colour with the wire too, like silver, black or gold for example. Find out how to make these over at Mixed Kreations.
Make a Map Necklace
Off course I had to add something that involved a map of some kind. And isn’t this pretty? Plus you can make this very personal (great for a gift as well). You can pick the place you were born, where you met your significant other, where your kids were born, your favorite holiday destination, somewhere you would still like to go. The possibilities are endless! Find out how to make this beautiful map necklace at Happy Hour Projects.
Lila Griffith made these beautiful macrame necklaces and she explained how you can do it too! And why stop at necklaces? Make yourself some earrings too! You can choose different types and colours of threads, or you could dip-dye them.
Using Vinegar and Salt Patina for Jewelry Making
This looks amazing, and I love how it got made by playing around with chemistry! Rena Klingenberg over at the Jewelry Making Journal is a genius! Be sure to check out some of her other tutorials too!
