Do you know what I heard last week? The swag bags given away to attendees of the Emmy award shows include handmade jewelry from independent artists. I was so happy and surprised to find that crafters like you and I are having their creations sent to celebrities and worn on television! You may think that kind of artistry is out of your reach, but many of the crafters who had their jewelry included in the swag bags were local artisans with little more than an online jewelry store or Etsy shop, and they had to start somewhere!
With a little practice, you can learn to make jewelry fit for celebrities too! Start with the new Jewelry for You! How to Make Handmade Beaded Necklaces and Bracelets eBook from FaveCrafts and Consumer Crafts. This free eBook includes over 30 pages of beautiful beaded jewelry projects to fit any outfit. You can find instructions for creating 5 different bracelets, 13 different necklaces, and even a few pairs of earrings.
If you like long, dangling pendant necklaces with interesting charms, the Jewelry for You! eBook provides tutorials for several different pendants. The distressed wooden pendant (p. 18) is earthy and adorable with the fashionable owl motif, while the “Key to Everything” charm necklace (p. 21) has a steampunk flair. If you prefer bigger statement necklaces, make a bib necklace with oversize fabric roses (p. 16) or a multistrand necklace covered in disc beads (p.32).
The jewelry projects in Jewelry for You! How to Make Handmade Beaded Necklaces and Bracelets also make wonderful gifts for friends and family. I especially like the idea of the fillable frames bracelet (p. 13) and necklace (p. 14). These locket-sized frame charms keep photos of loved ones close.
