There are plenty of inexpensive jewelry crafts that you can make. Just making your own jewelry can be more cost effective than buying jewelry. There are also some inexpensive jewelry crafts that you can make for gifts or to decorate your home.
One such inexpensive jewelry craft is made when you use some of your leftover jewelry supplies such as beads, crystals and other gems. Use these leftover jewelry supplies along with a long piece of jewelry wire to string your own candlestick wraps or vase covers. These leftover beads can be strung onto the length of wire. Use any pattern or no pattern at all doubling back through some beads to fix them into place. Tuck in the ends so that there are no fingers getting hurt. Wrap the newly strung line of beads around a candlestick or hang from a vase for a great inexpensive craft.
Original artwork made form jewelry craft supplies is also a great inexpensive idea. Once again you can use leftover beads, gems or crystals to make your original artwork. Use an old or inexpensive picture frame and use the backing to adhere some white linen to. Next you can hot glue your leftover jewelry supplies onto the linen in any shape or pattern you wish. Once the glue has dried you can then re-frame the backing and hang on any wall or rest the frame on any shelf. This is a great idea for gifts, adding some color and sparkle to a room or just to get rid of some of your extra supplies.
Another inexpensive jewelry craft is to decorate the frame of an unused picture frame. Again, you will need a hot glue gun to add any gems, beads or crystals to the picture frame. You can fill the full frame with the jewelry products or just a few. Use a mixture of the jewelry craft supplies for a one of a kind look.
Instead of buying charms for your mobile phone or even wine glass charms you could make your own out of beads and wire. You can use beads of different colors or ones that are different shades of the same color. String the beads along a small wire. Double back onto the last and first bead to tuck in any extra wire. Use a clasp to hang the charm from you mobile phone or wrap the wire around the wine glass to keep it in place. This is so much more inexpensive than buying the charms and you can get one exactly to your specifications.
Napkin rings can be very expensive and so you can use the same philosophy to create your own. Because this is such an inexpensive jewelry craft you can make napkin rings for any holiday or special occasion. You can also create multiple string napkin rings or use undecorated rings to add many smaller lines of beads.
Inexpensive jewelry crafts can be used for the jewelry itself. You can make your own bracelets, necklaces and earrings to match any outfit. Learn some of the more elaborate ways to make jewelry and you can make some very fashionable pieces of jewelry instead of paying full price. The jewelry supplies you buy will become less expensive the more you use the supplies to make more jewelry. You can also give your jewelry crafts to friends, family, co-workers and even neighbors as a great and inexpensive gift.
After the initial cost of some of the jewelry tools such as pliers and the beginning beads, crystals, or gems your cost will decrease. Just about anything you can make can become an inexpensive jewelry craft.
