Would you love to give a gift that looks amazing, but is simple to make and affordable too? This selection of DIY Jewelry gifts may look beautiful but — with the help of some great tutorials — you will be surprised at just how easy they are to make.
1. CLAY RINGS
Inspired by a Poppytalk tutorial, these golden clay rings from Shannon at Clad and Cloth couldn’t be simper to make. You can find the tutorial on Made From Pinterest. She even made the clay herself, to keep costs down. You can find a link to the clay recipe in the ring tutorial.
2. WIRE AND PEARL CUFF
This beautiful wire and pearl cuff is from Julia at Coco Knits. You can experiment with the size of needles and the beads you choose to create endless colorways and styles.
3. SHRINK PLASTIC CAT EARRINGS
A self-confessed ‘mad cat lady’, these cute earrings are from Becky at The Pink Samurai. Have a wander around her site — she has some more, equally-lovely shrink-plastic jewellery projects to try.
4. WOVEN WRAP BRACELET
I love the pretty clasp and natural hemp cord used for this bracelet. You can find Adrianne’s tutorial at Happy Hour Projects. Such a beautiful handmade gift is under an hour.
5. OMBRE CORD BRACELET
How stylish does this look? Once you have the bits assembled, this is a 20-minute project. You can find this great tutorial at The Things She Makes.
6. DYED CONCRETE PENDANT NECKLACE
This is just one of many fabulous jewelry tutorials from Fran at Fall For DIY. If you haven’t found her site yet, and you love making jewelry, you are in for a treat.
