Regardless of the individual fashion style, jewelry has always been part of everyones’ daily outfits, whether it’s just a single bracelet or a whole bunch of them on a single arm. Jewelry is interesting because we can change it up regarding our age, the occasion, and our style.
However, time changes, and so do our styles. Keeping up the jewelry collection and constantly expanding it can be costly, so why not save a little and make your own jewelry? This is such a versatile and creative part of fashion, the possibilities are endless. You can choose different materials, colors, patterns and make a unique piece of jewelry.
How about you choose wood for your next accessories project? Make some unique wooden earrings, bangles, necklaces, and even rings. Choose your favorite from this roundup, get your supplies and start crafting. Tweak them to your own liking and you’ll have something to style up and complete your favorite outfit.
Wood Bib Necklace
Come summertime, we ladies all want a piece of jewelry that’s both lightweight and bright. This one, in particular, is perfect for that season, because it’s not heavy and you can paint the beads in whichever color you prefer. It’s also flexible, which means you can wear it during the day and during the night, and you can also wear it at the beach as an accessory to your swimwear.
Painted Block Necklace
Another way you can play with stuff to make jewelry is by lining a few wood blocks on a gold chain. These blocks are perfect because they’re not too heavy that you feel uncomfortable wearing them, and because you can color them as you prefer. Plus, they look super stylish and complement a plain summer dress perfectly.
Simple Wooden Rings
If you have the appropriate equipment to make these rings, then you will absolutely enjoy making them, as they can be in any shape and color that you want. What’s great about them is that they go really well with any casual clothing and cause no rashes to the skin unlike some of the store-bought bijouterie. Some of you may even agree that they would make great spur-of-the-moment engagement rings (wink, wink).
Imagine wearing this and someone asks you where you got it, completely amazed by its beauty, not ironically like Regina George from Mean Girls. Then you thank them for asking that question and try to hold back all excitement while telling them you made it yourself. Pretty great, right? Well, stop daydreaming and get to work!
Handmade Wooden Bangles
If you used to enjoy Art in school, this will be a nice flashback for you. Picture the bangles as a piece of paper or canvas and let your imagination run free. Just follow the instructions, paint your bangles however you’d like, and get ready to show everyone your renewed accessory.
Yet another set of accessories you can wear at the beach. While some of us are not used to wearing any jewelry at the beach, it’s good to put on a little piece once in a while, because why not? The effort is minimal, but the compliments will be endless.
Wooden Beaded Tassel Necklace
When we saw the photo in this tutorial, for some reason we immediately thought of Pocahontas, and we just had to include it in our list. This one is fun to make as it involves stringing beads of different shapes and sizes which you get to pick.
If you’re someone who used to obsess over bangles as a teenager, chances are you have a ton of them in your dressing room, long forgotten because you’d grown tired of them. So, why don’t you change them up a bit? Try this tutorial and maybe it will inspire you to create a new design onto your old bangles and make them interesting again.
Is there anything more romantic and heartwarming than a piece of hand-stamped jewelry? Of course, you can always have it done, but where’s the fun and emotion in that? Get the necessary materials and get ready to sweep your significant other off their feet.
Gold Paint and Wood Bead Necklace
Finally, jewelry worth your while for yourself as well as your friends. What’s amazing about this project is that you have complete freedom over how you paint it. The important thing is to have fun.
