Growing up we always had a jewelry shop in our house. Our Jewelry Shop has extended to the outside, in the garage, basement, TV room, car, bedroom, and the list goes on and on.
That is the wonderful thing about making jewelry it is so portable!
Since I am far away from the amazing jewelry shop that has all the tools and gadgets in the world that is shown here in the video below, I had to come up with my own personal jewelry workshop, that all fits in the size of a shoe box.
That is one of the wonderful things about making jewelry, it can be as simple or as ornate as you want.
Jewelry making is one of the best hobbies, because the start up cost is not very much.
These 14 designs that I will show you, require only wire and some pliers.
or you can even ask us, and we will find something for you!
The pliers I use are in this jewelry kit:
And now to prove to you that you can become a jeweler with these two items, wire and pliers, here are some fun designs:
9. Hoop Earrings:
The youtube video also shows you how to make a regular hoop earring, if that is what you would like to do, and not add the hammered part of the earring. The regular hoop earrings is shown above.
Tales of the Shop:
A sad event happened on April 15th, that I have not quite gotten over. Jonathan Crombie who played Gilbert Blythe in the Anne of Green Gables series passed away.
I am actually a little obsessed with Anne of Green Gables…
I remember reading Anne of Green Gables the summer before my freshman year of highschool and absolutely loving it! I wished I had red hair, loved Anne’s spunk, and said to my dad that I would one day live in Canada. He said that there was no way that was going to happen, but guess what people, dreams come true:)
Out of all the places that I would love to visit in the world it would be Prince Edward Island, which I get to visit in a couple of weeks. Another dream come true!
I will be forever grateful for Jonathan for portraying the perfect Gilbert Blythe.
And for my solace I just sat and looked at youtube for awhile. Finding the best Anne and Gilbert moments, because let’s be honest that is the reason I watch the movies!
