8 dazzling DIY jewelry gifts you can easily make

Create your own DIY handmade gifts with these exquisite jewelry making ideas.

But don’t let their elegance fool you. They’re easy enough for beginners to make!

The best part is each tutorial uses five materials or fewer. Gone are the worries about stocking up on expensive supplies that will end up collecting dust in your craft bin. 

(And you can find cheap supplies for many of these projects!)

A few tips before we dive into the jewelry design ideas:

  • While each of the tutorials below uses sterling silver jump rings you can easily switch them for another jewelry metal jump ring of your choosing
  • For the tutorials with the pearls, you can swap them out for another small circular bead. The Swarovski crystals can be switched for any other type of briolette (or pear-shaped bead) or another long bead of your choice.
  • Each of the tutorials is based on one really easy jewelry-making technique — the Mobius spiral. If you’d like a video tutorial, I encourage you to sign up for my free jewelry making course, Jewelry Making Basics
