You don’t have to always use your jewelry crafts for wearing. You can also use your jewelry supplies to make decorations for your home. Let’s take a look at some of those jewelry crafts for decor.
This first jewelry craft for decor is easy for beginners or for kids. It’s a beaded bookmark and it is a great way to add some sparkle to some bookshelves. Here are some of the supplies you will need and some directions on how to make the beaded bookmark.
• Wire cutters
• 18 gauge wire in whatever color you desire
• Needle nose pliers
• Glass beads
• Small dowel
• 36 gauge metallic wire, optional
You can start this beaded bookmark by cutting a 24 inch length of the 18 gauge wire. Use pliers and bend over one end of the wire for the bottom of the bookmark. Next you need to begin threading your desired beads on the straight end of the wire, sliding the beads to the bottom. The top of your bookmark can be made by bending the wire or wrapping it around a small dowel where you want the beads to be held. Place your desired beads on the wire then shape the wire end into a spiral to hold the beads in place. If you would like, you can then wrap small sections of the beaded bookmark with metallic wire.
