Jewelry Making – Variations on a Theme

One of the fun things about making jewelry is the different styles you can design – even with (mostly) the same components. It doesn’t have to be difficult. This is not rocket science – it’s about making pretties to wear or give or sell, and having a good time while you’re at it!

Here’s an example of some earrings I made recently:

The main components are vintage rhinestone (glass) jewels – and yes, they are available here, in my Etsy shop. Of course you can use any jewels (or beads) – these are pretty ones that I had on hand.

The other components? some earwires, and golden chain, and another vintage glass jewel in a similar but not identical shape, and a complementary color. None of these was difficult to execute – and they are pretty and flattering to wear.

Play around with what you’ve got – try different styles – have some fun!

P.S. As always – the designs here are not State Secrets – if they spur a creative idea for you, go for it!
