Accessories are meant to complete your look and make a sea of difference to the entire look put together. Jewellery forms an important part of one’s wardrobe apart from the clothes, bags and footwear. A piece of jewellery can uplift an entire look. Jewellery can be experimented with to get a particular look whether it’s goth or biker style or chic or elegant.
Buying jewellery is fine, however there is a lot of sentimental value attached to making a piece of jewellery, whether for yourself, a friend, a sibling or a loved one. Below are a few ideas to help you make pieces of jewellery on your own.
Accessories that can be made by you
Shells are very versatile as they are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Also shell jewellery is very popular and can be made even by kids. All you need to do is look online for shells.
You can look for oyster shells for sale or any other variety from the numerous choices. Next, you can make a pair of earrings or use a shell as a pendant and pass a chain through the shell or you can even make a bracelet of tiny shells. A statement necklace of large shells will make heads turn when you wear it with your summer outfit. The only thing to remember is to use gilding adhesive to make a hole or then to be careful with craft drills so as not to break the shells.
Rope or yarn
You can use different brightly coloured ropes to make a statement neckpiece. Braid the ropes and then attach a hook attachment at the end. A braided bracket can also be made in a similar manner.
Stones and beads
Apart from shells, stones and beads are equally popular and can make a wide variety of jewellery pieces. Most beads come with a hole so you just need to pass a chain or string through them to make a necklace or bracelet. Bead earrings can be made too. Even, multiple layers can be added to the necklace to make it stand out.
Similarly, a number of stones are available or can be found naturally too for you to make an accessory of your choice. Turquoise beads are especially popular and make for stunning statement jewellery. Pieces of marble can also be used by giving them a coat of colour which makes them look like jade or something similar.
The art of making jewellery using wires might require a little skill to bend it perfectly, but it can make pretty shapes, such as a flower or a heart or any shape that it can be bend into. This can be made into rings or earrings.
So, go ahead and make your own piece of jewellery.
