FaveCrafts has a great assortment of collections and eBooks for anyone that loves jewelry making. Basically, if you have the urge to create, we’ve got you covered. For some of us editors, there are a few must have resources for jewelry making. Here are our absolute favorites!
“25 Easy to Make Homemade Jewelry Ideas” eBook – From pendants to necklaces, this eBook is stacked with fantastic and fun craft ideas. My personal favorite project is the Bling Ring. The name alone makes it pretty special.
“Beautiful Beads: 45 Beading Craft Projects” eBook – I tend to get intimidated by beading projects. They seem like they require so much patience and skill – two things I seem to lack. But these projects are so great and super cute. I’m a big fan of the Chandelier Earrings.

Easy Decoupage Bangles are a great gift and are super fun to make! Make some for mom and make a matching set for yourself.
