The holiday season is a perfect time of year to share your love of jewelry making. Here are a bunch of great projects, some easy some a little more advanced, for you. Many of the ornament projects are also easily adaptable into jewelry items.

Sparkling Wood, Wire, and Crystal Christmas Tree Earrings

A little glitter adds a 3D affect to some simple painted wood pieces. Add some wire and a crystal on top of each one to make these earrings sparkle even more.

These are perfect little gifts for those people who tell you not to give them anything. Plus they are so easy to create that I made a number of them all at the same time to give away as gifts to co-workers and friends.

Paper clay is a fun and unusual jewelry making medium. In this project, I use a cookie cutter to create an ornament. Use this same technique and scale it down to create your own jewelry components.

This holiday ornament is one of the projects I came up with for those on my “small gift” list. You can whip up gobs of these super quickly, and they are also excellent for children to make.
