Sometimes an outfit is a plain and boring thing when it does not have the life that jewelry brings to it. But, you want jewelry that speaks about you and makes a statement and sometimes the pieces out in the market just don’t make the cut. Here are some ways to make your own jewelry.
First, visit your local craft stores and peruse the wide selection of jewelry making things that they have. You will find a number of chains, earring pieces, and beads, jewels, pearls, stones, and items that will be useful to you. You want to make sure that you have a good supply of chains, string, earring clasps, hooks, necklaces, and bracelets, so that you have the basics and then you can begin fashioning your own amazing jewelry.
You want to be sure to choose a kind of theme before you begin working. Jewelry can be made for a variety of styles and outfits. If you want to make casual jewelry that will match your everyday clothes, then you want to pick something that is smaller in size, because usually casual jewelry is not big and does not make bold size statements. Thus, you want to choose maybe a smaller earring hook. You want to perceive some outfits that you are looking to style, so that you can get a color palette in mind. Most likely you have a dozen different outfits but you might not have jewelry for all of them. Group your outfits together and then try and see what colors you require and what kind of styles you need. Once you’ve established that, then you can begin making jewelry that is right and necessary for you.
For elegant pieces, working with stones, such as cubic zirconium and other kinds of imitation stones are a great way to get that regal and dazzling look. You can attach these stones to necklaces and create beautiful pieces that will look great with your fancy and formal outfits. Or, you can make casual pieces with colored stones like lapis lazuli and black onyx, or with crystal beads that come in a number of colors. These stones are less formal and can make a great addition to any casual outfit, such as a summer dress or jeans and t-shirt.
And finally, when you’ve established a style, try to do something that takes you out of your comfort zone and establishes a style that is uniquely you. Maybe you can use something that is particular to your style, such as flowers or feathers if you love nature or the metal symbols of images that represent you or even your initial somehow engraved or embedded in your pieces. No matter what items you use, just be sure that the style is especially you and you will be certain that you have developed a piece that is all about you and reflective of your own style. This will be the best kind of jewelry for you to wear, as it will reflect you and you will find yourself wearing it time and time again.
You can even get inspiration from a number of other cultures, such as bangles from India or the long, dangling earrings filled with color and sequins that are popular in the East, and these styles can inspire you to create pieces that will not only represent you but make a new, trendy statement.
