DIY: Jewelry

June 9, 2011

I recently ordered some jewelry making supplies online which I intended to use in art journals.
But why not make a couple of cute, vintage-looking necklaces and earrings? Here's what I came up with:
Cute bird, sewing machine & camera? And a vintage look? I like!
I don't have any of those fancy jewelry making tools. My list of materials is quite simple:
1. a nice cup of coffee/tea, nice weather and a cozy place in the garden.
2. a tablecloth (it prevents things from falling down), some pliers(I recommend to clean them. The ones I found were quite dirty…) and some pendants, necklaces etc.
You can always use old necklaces, earrings etc. and use the materials to make new, handmade beauties.

I got all these from a dawanda.com shop
I like to keep my jewelry rather simple, so I usually only use one charm/earring.
These are also cute, little gifts. If you don't want to invest money in charms etc, you can also use buttons, little thrift store finds, pompoms and small fabric elements like yo-yos and small flowers.
Happy crafting!
