What are DIY findings? Well, they are findings that allow you to do the creating yourself! Things like bezels that can be filled with images, beads and resin, blanks that can be stamped - and so much more. These components allow you to really express yourself and see how unique your jewelry designs can be.
DIY Jewelry Components Do you want to create jewelry that feels like it is truly one of a kind and original? Of course you do! What designer doesn't? When you use DIY (do it yourself) components in your jewelry designs, you will come away with pieces that feel fresh, original, unique and...well..."you".
There are simple products designed for beginners: blanks for rivolis or cabochons, for example, where all you have to do is glue and wait to have a high end, designer-looking piece in no time. Then there are those components that might challenge you a bit. There's 2 part epoxy crystal clay that you can mix and set inside a bezel pendant or within the channel of a bangle bracelet. You can customize your colors and add beads, charms or glitter for shocking effect.
Have you ever wanted to display an image you love and use it as part of your jewelry making? Perhaps you have a favorite family portrait or an image of a painting that really speaks to you or a word that means something -hope, faith or love, for instance. Using your own image, a glass tile and 3D Crystal Lacquer, you can display your image or word to the world. Does all of this sound like a lot of fun but you aren't quite sure where to begin? Take a look at the projects and videos below and see just how fun - and easy - making meaningful DIY jewelry can be!
