On today’s show, everything is about pumpkins! Fall is finally here and I’m so excited to share this new craft with you. Bohemian tribal jewelry is very in style right now. Oxidized (aged) silver mixed with gold is all the rage. This is a quick and inexpensive way to make bib necklaces and statement earrings.
Color and design are the most important aspects of jewelry making. Materials don’t need to be expensive if the color and design are pleasing. Here are a few ideas to get you started! Obviously, you can make a more intricate necklace than the ones shown. My job is to give you some easy projects you can make in an hour for less than $10. As always, if you need some jewelry findings, I will send you some free of charge if you live in Mass. Everyone else pays a few dollars in shipping. The info is at the bottom of the page.
Okay, here’s what you need to make the jewelry:
Pea & bean soup mix
Felt (or sturdy fabric like denim)
Metallic spray paint
You can spray paint the seeds any color. You can use gold fabric or paint the felt gold. You can use glitter, beads, rhinestones or pearls to fill in the negative space if you wish. The sky is the limit on this craft. I wanted to show you how quickly you could make something fun with the kids for Halloween or for yourself!
