I love attention-grabbing jewelry. If I’m taking the time to add accessories to my outfit, I want them to be a focal point. I think statement jewelry is a dream for any crafter. It really lets you show off your creativity!
This is the perfect addition to a simple jeans and t-shirt outfit, or a little black dress. This necklace looks like it was purchased for a lot more money than it takes to create it. You’ll want one in a rainbow of colors!
If you’re as addicted to the adult coloring world as we are, chances are that you have a few pages lying around that are dying to be shown off. That’s why I’ve got this fun tutorial for you so you can turn your masterpiece into a jewelry piece.
This week I got to hang out with my school aged niece who was on spring break and she asked me if we could make jewelry. So, I set out to find some fun, easy to follow tutorials for making jewelry we would both be proud to wear! I found some great tutorials for making jewelry with a variety of materials including fabric, paper, washi tape and popsicle/craft sticks! With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I thought it might be a good time for crafting presents for the mom’s in our lives also.
These fabric bead necklaces are so much fun to make, and to wear! My niece made one for her mom, and I made one for my sister, who is about to have her second daughter sometime this week!
I bought this jewelry box but found it a bit too precious to use. So I lined the bottom with some linen and have enjoyed using the jewelry box ever since!
After I got my materials together, I traced the bottoms of each level of the jewelry box on a thin but sturdy cardboard. Since you’ll be using mod podge, you’ll want to choose a cardboard that can hold up to the moisture.
I’ve got a little satin bag full of the sparkly costume jewelry that both my grandmothers used to wear to parties and I love to peek at their elegance, but I very rarely use them. They are a little too fancy for everyday wear for me and I don’t often have a chance to go somewhere where they would be fitting. So I’ve been on the lookout for some projects to use them with. I love their glamour, they deserve to be used and worn and these projects are just the ticket!
And here’s a way to make those sparkly jewels a little more suitable for every day use! Pretty little hairpins topped with something vintage and fun! These would be especially pretty for a little girls party hairdo!

I recently had the chance to try out the latest from Martha Stewart Crafts – her new jewelry line. I don’t think I’ve ever seen jewelry making supplies quite like these. My two favorites were the enamel and the jewelry glaze. They each add color to your charms and other things to create a piece that is uniquely yours.
