Making Beautiful Handmade Jewelry
For several years, I had a crafts website and one of my most popular items was my handmade jewelry. I sold bracelets, necklaces, pins, and rosaries both online and at craft fairs for several years.
I eventually learned that I preferred making one bracelet rather than ten of the same bracelet and gave up that site to begin blogging.
So, I still enjoy creating jewelry, but now I make it for myself and as gifts for other people. While some jewelry requires special tools and skills, there are a number of beautiful accessories that you can make with no experience and just a few basic craft supplies.
No matter what your skill level, here are a few projects to get you started making your own handmade creations for yourself or as gifts for friends and family.

There are so many pretty projects listed. Making jewelry saved my sanity after I got sick It gave me a creative outlet.
It really is a great stress relief as well, Patty! Hope you’ll try a few.
I’ve never been crafty, but always admired home made jewelry. So unique – so pretty. I love that it has instructions for the beginners as well. It can be super intimidating to start something new if you know very little about it
I agree. I always appreciate the beginner projects.
My mother used to make jewelry back in the day, the girls from my class would ask to come over so they could see what she was working on, or request something. I’ve crafty but not with thinks with tiny/fine detail. I love the beautiful green bracelet.
I’m finding as I get older that the tiny details are more difficult.
I made so many bracelets with my mom and aunt this summer and realized that I only like designing them; those tiny findings give me a fit. 🙂
These are lovely designs!
Those little findings are just the worst!
