Adorning ourselves has been popular for thousands of years and men and women today continue to love jewellery. Making your own jewellery means the results will be original and personalised; you will also have the satisfaction of knowing that you are responsible for the entire creative process. You can make jewellery with beads in different materials such as metal, glass, wood, wax or plastic. You may also need clasps and metal findings, as well as chains and pendants. You can also make beautiful necklaces, bracelets or rings with silver clay, leather strap and tin thread. Use a stone tumbler to make matt stones for shimmering, eye-catching jewellery.
