If you already love making your own jewelry, you likely don’t need much convincing about the merits of this creative hobby. If you’ve never tried jewelry making, however, you’ll instantly be hooked from the first colorful bead that you string on your own tailor-made bracelet. Here are three great jewelry crafts to try this weekend.
Violet Necklace [oneartsymama.com]
This crafty necklace is made out of polymer clay instead of the usual craft supply store beads. This versatile clay comes in a number of different colors, and you can pair a few colors together to create a multidimensional effect. By flattening the clay and molding it into disc-like circles, you can create a layered necklace that looks chic when threaded onto a gold chain.
Plastic Canvas Bracelets [craftsunleashed.com]
Although the braided friendship bracelets of years past still have the same quirky charm, it’s time for a new type of colorful bracelet craft. This plastic canvas bracelet uses only three supplies: sheets of plastic canvas, elastic cording, and a reliable pair of scissors.
Fabric Button Earrings [sadalewis.com]
This craft is perfect if you want to create a completely customizable pair of earrings because you can use virtually any type of fabric to make it your own. Simply cover a metal button with the fabric, attach an earring back and voila: your own colorful, completely custom earrings!
