Thinking of making some handmade jewellery designs this Christmas? Jewellery making doesn't have to require lots of time, tools or skill! We share with you some simple, beginner friendly designs you can make in no time using our high quality jewellery making supplies below.
What's brilliant about gallery wire settings is that the claws are flexible, making them so easy to set. All you need to do is place your favourite cabochon gemstone in the setting and use a bezel rocker or pusher to gently push the wire over the stone to secure it in place.
What cabochon will you use? Don't forget to choose the same size setting as your stone!
Who wouldn't want a beautiful handmade ring for Christmas? You can choose a beautiful cabochon gemstone to complete the look! They're adjustable, meaning you won't need to worry about the size of your friend's finger when creating it.
Some rings will need a touch of Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy Glue to secure the gemstone, whereas rings with gallery wire simply need a bezel rocker or pusher to push the stone in place. It's really that easy!
Memory wire is a fantastic threading material that allows you to create beautiful jewellery designs easily. It's a hard, rigid, pre-coiled wire which holds its shape - unlike regular metal jewellery wire, memory wire cannot be manipulated to change its shape.
Follow our tutorial where we show you how to make a simple bracelet design and three ways to finish your designs professionally. This is a great project to experiment with your favourite gemstone beads and charms!
Charms have so many uses such as creating bracelets, adding to pendants or using as earrings. If you want something easy, simply add your favourite charm to a chain to make a beautiful necklace.
Don't forget most charms require a jump ring to hang from a necklet chain.
