Have you ever tried making jewelry? There is something soothing and entertaining about making art. Jewelry making is a hobby that allows you to create something through a variety of material and color combinations that reflect your personal style and attitude. You can make your own necklaces with earrings to match and then further accessorize with a bracelet or broach. Fill your jewelry cabinet with gem, stone, and bead combinations that you design or maybe even design for friends, family or even start your own business.
Is jewelry making expensive? If you like jewelry, making your own will definitely reduce the cost of ownership. The cost of making jewelry will depend on the types of beads, gems and stones that you want to use in your designs. Determine your favorite colors, sizes and textures that you like to work with best. Stock up at wholesale bead shows that offer better deals on findings, beads, wire, and other materials. After you find your favorite materials, vendors, and colors, you will soon be creating jewelry that will rival the items that you used to purchase at stores.
How do I learn how to make jewelry? There are a variety of ways of learning how to make jewelry from the internet to physical classes. A great place to start is simply searching videos on Youtube. You will find videos from around the world on just about every type of jewelry making from beading to welding. However, if you prefer a little more one-on-one, check out your local arts and crafts stores and Bead and Jewelry shows. In New Orleans, Michelle Roy, from MeMe’s Beads and Things offers classes. If you are interested in finding out more MeMe’s Beads and Things will be at the July Show at The Pontchartrain Center.
