I’m going to apologize for this, but I’ve been on a jewelry kick these past two weeks. Earrings last week and bracelets this week. I promise next week will bring new and exciting things. Let me get this out of my system first, though.
Okay, moving on. I love leather bracelets, but I never make them. I always feel like other people can make them better than I do, so I just buy them. That had to change, because you can’t get better at something if you don’t try, right? Read the whole post
I disappeared last week. Sorry about that. I needed a mini break from all organized activity. Surely you’ve been in the same boat. But I’m back to crafting this week and I have a fancy set of earrings for you to make that’s quick and easy.
These are the kind of homemade earrings that make great gifts.
They look more expensive than they are (but aren’t cheaply made), so that’s a win for both the maker and the recipient.

The February theme for The Craft Challenge is beads, so I chose to make wire-wrapped earrings. I found the beads at Michael’s last week and thought they would look cute stacked on top of each other. They look kind of elegant, don’t they? Read the whole post
I’m a really big fan of vintage jewelry. Most of the time I admit I would never wear it, but I really like the way it looks. The other day, I was at Michael’s (of course, it’s like my second home), and found these really cute key charms. They’re not really vintage keys, obviously, but they’re close enough in appearance. I wanted to make something with them, but the craft I planned on making this week didn’t work out like I’d hoped. Read the whole post
The June theme for this Craft Challenge was jewelry and I was having a hard time coming up with something to make. Jewelry is usually a pretty easy one for me because I make so much of it. Turns out, that was my problem. I’ve made a little bit of every kind of jewelry and I don’t want to repeat any of my tutorials. So, I tweeted for a fresh perspective. Read the whole post
I’ve had the materials to make this necklace for weeks now and was finally able to fit it into my DIY schedule. Yay!
It’s sooo easy to make and costs less than $5 (unless you want a really fancy chain.) It also took about 15 minutes to put together, so the next time you need a necklace when going out and you don’t like any of the ones you have, consider making this one.
I know this post is coming much later in the day than usual but it’s better late than never, right?
I haven’t made any wire jewelry in a while and was thinking about this pair of earrings I saw the other day that i really liked. They were similar to these, except they had these hideous beads in the bottom swirl. I liked them, but sans beads. So I decided to make my own, more appealing version. Read the whole post
