In case you missed my blog post over at The Life of Ann James earlier this month, here it is… several tutorials on making some simple and inexpensive jewelry…
I know that Erin loves to shop… and she’s really good about finding deals. I can hardly believe that she found designer jeans for $26! She’s always on the lookout for a great sale, and sharing it with her readers here. She’s so gracious! And in the spirit of that graciousness, when she offered up a guest-posting spot… I jumped at it!
And then I thought… holy cow… what am I supposed to talk about? I’m a Craft Blogger! I do tutorials on making pincushions, using your Cricut, and making Quiet Books for the kiddos. Most of my shopping is not done at the mall… but at the craft store and fabric store.
But… did you know that they sell amazing jewelry at the craft store? Yup… but there is a catch (isn’t there always?)… they sell it in pieces. Luckily, it is easy to put together… and I’m here to show you how it is done, with THREE pretty projects. The first two are super easy, and the third is a little trickier…
For all three of these projects, all you’ll need is some inexpensive supplies ($20 for all three projects), two pairs of pliers (one round nosed), and a pair of wire cutters… any decent toolbox should have these supplies… go ahead and raid your dad’s/husband’s/boyfriend’s toolbox for them… just be sure to put them back when you’re done!
I hope you enjoy making your own jewelry. If you find that you really enjoy the creating (and the savings) that come from making these for yourself and friends… there are lots of other blogs and websites that will show you oodles of other techniques!
