Keep Them Busy, Make Some Jewelry

Keep them busy, make some jewelryThe Holidays are almost here and that means you will be spending a lot of time with your loved ones. The kids will get off from school or come home from college. With the anticipation of Christmas, it will be difficult to “contain” the little ones. Why not get some beads or gemstones and make some jewelry? That way, you avoid the “idle hands….” and you and your family can make some last minute gifts. It will be an activity the whole family can enjoy together.

What To Make

Jewelry is among the all time favorites for Christmas presents. Since you will be making custom bracelets and necklaces, you can make exactly what’s perfect for your loved ones and what works best for your wallet.

You could, for example, incorporate birth stones into your jewelry. Birthstones connect your birth month with a rare and unique gemstone. Some believe wearing birthstones brings good luck. Others like the gems for their particular colors. Astrologers have attributed supernatural powers to some gemstones.

Friendship bracelets are another way to show how much you care about your loved ones. They have evolved over time, what started out as a wristband made of embroidery floss or thread and a type of macrame has become pretty elaborate. Now most friendship bracelets include multi-colored beads, sometimes shells or even gem stones. They can be made with leather or other kind of strings. Usually kids wear more than one friendship bracelet, after all, they have more than just one friend.

If you are making bracelets, necklaces or earnings for the holiday season you will want to add some green or red beads, or gem stones and, off course, some extra sparkle. The holidays are a great time to take advantage of all the sparkle and shimmer. A festive rhinestone barrette is all you need to take your updo to the next level. Sparkly barrettes work for hairstyles worn down or up, and they’re a great way to add just a little touch of sparkle.
