If you follow me over on Instagram, chances are you’ll know that I’m currently OBSESSED with making my own jewellery! I am constantly searching for new items to turn into earrings, collar clips, necklaces, or charm bracelets. I am having so much fun with this new hobby of mine that I knew I had to share my tips and tricks with you all on here ☺️
Whilst MY personal style (which can be accurately summed up with the words “sweet”, “cute”, and “novelty”) may not align with yours, you can still take the methods I use and apply it to your own homemade jewellery.
In this post, I will share with you the kind of items I usually use for my accessories, ideas on how to make your own items/pendants if you can’t find the design you want, AND the actual tools and equipment that help me make those ideas real.
As long-time readers will know, I pride myself on being #thrifty, so this hobby – including the equipment required – is not expensive at all, which means anyone can start making their own accessories NOW 😊
ITEMS YOU CAN TURN INTO ACCESSORIES:
The majority of my accessories are made from fun-shaped erasers, and there’s a few reasons for this. One being that they are really easy to find as almost everyone is a proud stationery lover these days. They’re also really cheap, and often come in packs of different designs for only a few dollars.
Due to their small size, they’re relatively light in weight, which means they won’t be too heavy on your ear lobes if you choose to turn them into earrings. Plus, since they’re so soft, it’s easy to insert an eye pin into them with minimal effort!
If you’re wondering where I bought the erasers that I used, the macaron ones are from Kmart, the NON-waffle cone ice cream ones are from The Reject Shop, and the rest – including the waffle cone ice cream, biscuits, fast food, sushi, and donut designs – are from Daiso Australia.Read More »
