Creating Fashion Jewelry Pieces

No matter what time of year it is, you like it hot hot hot-and why shouldn’t you? You’re one hot mama! And that means that you’re looking for the biggest fashion trends and the greatest ideas out there. But you’re also looking for deals so that your fashion accessories for 2014 don’t break the bank for you through 2020. Well, if that’s what you’re after, then you’re in luck. Because one of the hottest trends right now is to make your own fashion jewelry. Say what?! No, really, more and more women are making their own jewelry so that they can start a trend, have a unique piece, and look like a million bucks without spending a million bucks! In fact, more and more women are doing all of this and more and spending $20 or less to complete a jewelry set. That’s right! So how in the world can you do the same and reap the benefits that all these other women seem to be getting so easily? I’m here to tell you. So let’s get started.

Make the Most of Your Local Craft Stores for Fashion Jewelry Necessities

No matter what type of jewelry you’re trying to make, you can find pretty much everything you need at the local craft store. Never been in a craft store? Wait. If you’ve never been in a craft store, then we need to stop this, check your temperature and make sure you’re feeling okay. You’ll also need a significant amount of preparation because once you go craft, you can’t go back! You’ll enter the craft store one woman and come out completely different. You will never be the same, and neither will your jewelry boxes, your home, or your life. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get on to how your local craft store can help.

The Tools You Need to Make Fashion Accessories for 2014

Your local craft store, whether you realize it or not, is fully stocked and ready to help you make all the fashion jewelry and fashion accessories that you need for 2014 and every other year of your life. Not only can you buy everything you need there to make a fashion purse, but you can also buy every tool you need to get into jewelry making. This includes needle nose pliers, clasps, hooks, jewelry pins, and more. If you can’t find it on the shelf, you can ask someone who works in the store and they will either lead you to it or order it for you, in most cases. In some cases, they may send you down the street to their competitor, who also carries the product, if they are out of stock. That’s right, they send each other business so that you can get to beading!

The Look and Style You Want for Your Fashion Jewelry

When you walk into the local craft store, you’re going to be overwhelmed. These are not tiny stores. They’re humongous. Think big box grocery store, only filled with flowers and pretty scents and fun stuff to make and do. You could spend years completing all the projects that they have in store for you. So don’t get distracted! Head straight for what is likely to be four or five aisles (yes, I said aisles) of beads, charms, and other doodads for your fashion jewelry making experience. You’ll choose from hundreds of colors, sizes, styles, and types. You’ll be able to get real pearls, fake pearls, fake stones, costume jewelry pieces, and statement pieces. It will be the one place where you just can’t seem to make a decision, even four or five hours later.

Come With a Plan

If you’re new to making jewelry, it’s best to come with a picture that you printed off the internet, or something you drew, so that you can direct yourself and your experience to the right beads and stones. You should make sure to read some information about how to make jewelry. If you’re really skittish, your first several pieces can come from kits. That’s right, buy a kit and make some pieces that will get your skills going without breaking the bank.
