One of the best things about the end of the calendar year is waiting in anticipation for what the new year will bring. Wishes and goals are common this time of year, but learning about and seeing new trends is always the most exciting experience of the season, especially when it comes to trending jewelry styles. As most jewelry fans know, accessories can be expensive. Just a simple necklace, a couple of cute bracelets, a bold ring or two, or a few pairs of earrings can easily add anywhere from $25 to $50 at a minimum to your shopping expenses. It’s always better when you can find knockoff designs for less. You should never have to choose between staying on trend or spending all the money you have, and now you don’t have to.
AllFreeJewelryMaking has compiled a list of Trends for 2014: 7 DIY Jewelry Projects that will allow you to be on point with your style, but spend much less than you would in stores. These DIY jewelry ideas are easy, budget-friendly, and stylish. Whether you are new to making your own accessories or a seasoned homemade jewelry creator, make it your goal this coming year to make these trendy DIY projects.

Though it may seem like spring is far away, the fashion world from Miori to Mathon is already abuzz about pieces featuring birds, bees, and butterflies. If you want a noteworthy piece that follows this trend, this Buzzworthy Bee Cuff is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Nature-inspired jewelry like this Oscar de la Renta piece has an elegant feel; but you can get this lovely look for less by crafting your own Good as Gold 3-Level Necklace or an Autumn Leaves Necklace.
