Jewelry to Make

Color is an important ingredient for any piece of jewelry. Even if the color is black or white, it can make a huge statement and change the look the overall piece. Vintage elements such as blurred or faded images can give a brand new pendant a sense of old-world flair. Show off your piece to friends and see if they can tell that you didn't just steal your homemade pendant from your grandmother's jewelry box. Images such as dragonflies are also fun to depict when learning how to make pendants.
