Jewelry Making is Fun and Creative When I'm Organized

Colorful buttons used to make handmade barrings, bracelets and necklacesFor original jewelry making I buy colorful beads, buttons and charms. Finding pretty and unique beads, buttons, charms, chain and findings for my handmade jewelry designs takes time, but I love getting new jewelry supplies for my drop earring, charm bracelet and chunky necklace designs.

Part of the enjoyment of creating earrings, bracelets and necklaces is receiving new bead and button choices for inspiration. The textures and variations in color of my new jewelry components are an expanded pallet of choice.
 
Glamorous bracelet has silver heart buttons and clusters of shiny pink beadsI place all new beads and buttons in containers with other beads and buttons of similar colors and sizes. Being organized doesn’t hold me back in jewelry design, it helps me be creative when I know where everything is and can get it at a moments notice without breaking the momentum. If you know what you have available, it opens up the creative process and you can tick off all the options in your mind. When I’m messy I feel out of sorts and weighed down.

It’s also good to be organized in my jewelry studio so I can put everything away fast and start with a clean slate the next day. It helps the creative process if I don’t have my jewelry lying about all the time when I’m not working on it, that’s not a real break.

This Hollywood Glam Flower Bracelets is designed with ornate silver heart buttons and pretty pink flower buttons with purple crackle beads. 

Wear Fun Jewelry Styles to Fix Fashion Mistakes

Double strand necklace has purple and blue buttons linked with silver chain loops and ringsI use unique jewelry designs everyday to sidestep fashion misadventures. I have handmade original jewelry on hand as a quick fix to bring a problem outfit together. With long drop dangle earrings, chunky beaded bracelets, fun bold pendant style necklaces and the experience I’ve gathered over the years I feel I can take on the world.
 
I’ve made some big fashion mistakes. While finding solutions to my fashion blunders I realized I don’t mind inspiring someone else to laugh or atleast smile, but now I try to inspire humour by putting my fashion ensembles together with colorful accessories in a fun purposeful way.

Did you ever:
  1. Wear colours or patterns that didn’t really go together, but you really wanted them to? This is a fun fix, wear a beaded charm bracelet that brings it all together.
  2. Feel unsure that you're dressed for the occasion? Have a back up plan, carry an extra pair of shimmery long drop dangles with you for special occasions.
  3. Not have time to change between work and your hot date? Accessorize with a statement necklace. The necklace will help switch your state of mind from work to play and revives you inside out.
  4. Wear something that someone else is wearing too! This could be a nightmare, but by adding jewelry and edgy nail polish that you carry in your purse, you can make a statement. Don’t forget to introduce yourself to your fashion twin, obviously they have great taste and could be a lifelong friend.
  5. Feel the weather is cramping your style, because you have to cover up? Go with a chunky style necklace and big earrings and you’ll still stand out with style.

Bold Fun Jewelry as a Fashion Focal Point

Original handmade jewelry keeps the focus on you. Show fashion style with bold necklaces, cute bracelets and highlight your features with colorful fun earrings. Use clothing as your starting point and wear unique jewelry pieces to complete the look. When colorful beads, trendy fashion buttons and big bold charms stand out in a striking way they create lingering interest.
 
You need a fun fashion focal point so the eye has something to center on instead of going everywhere and then away from you with no interest. It’s interesting yet comfortable for the viewer to know where to look. People will be transfixed and at ease when your outfit looks complete with jewelry.
 
The great news is jewelry can draw attention to you, but away from areas you feel self conscious about. Bring attention to your neckline with a colorful necklace, emphasis your pretty hands with a cute bracelet then highlight your features with fun drop earrings. The focus is on you, yet areas you have issues with are less noticeable leaving you free to be confidently beautiful.

Bold Colorful Jewelry Keeps You Young and Fun

You can tell how someone is doing sometimes just by what they are wearing. Do you dress bright and fun, or somber and dark? You can change how you feel just by how you put your outfits together and how you accessorize. Your jewelry can fill in with bold fun color and unique style where your clothes might be lacking. So why not accessorize to make yourself happy and bring more color into your life.

Unique Handmade Jewelry Makes Shopping Fun

Buying original jewelry designs is about adding to your fashion style with unique earrings, bracelets and necklaces to show you’re smart, bold and intriguing. Handmade designer fashion jewelry adds layers of interest to your style to make you stand out, because it’s not only what you say, but the impression you give that gets you noticed. 
 
Vintage style gold flower button earrings with red czech beads and river stonesLook for jewelry that has variations in style and color from the jewelry you already have, don’t buy more of the same. We’ve all made that mistake, because we feel secure in buying what we know. The problem is you end up with multiples pairs of earrings, and a tangle of bracelets and necklaces that look the same. Meanwhile you keep wearing only one favorite jewelry piece over and over again. So step off the edge and plunge into the unknown world of artistic original jewelry designs.
 
Long drop dangle earrings with green oval glass beads and pretty fashion buttonsFind jewelry that is made with unusual beads, cute charms, or pretty accent findings that make it stand out. If each bracelet or necklace you buy is unique from the next in style and color you will be more satisfied with your purchases. Ofcourse they should all look spectacular on you, or put them back. Also make sure your jewelry is unique from any current trend. If it’s something that you will give away next year, because it looks dated then it wasn’t a good buy. If you have a few pieces like that already you can update them with a creative afternoon of do it yourself jewelry redesigning.

Original Jewelry Created from Beads, Charms and Buttons

Fun jewelry design elements that spark creativity in me to design my flirty accessory styles are everywhere. So I’ve made a list of all the different types of shiny beads, big buttons and cute charms that inspire me. These elements are my starting points in design and then new fun earrings, bold bracelets and colorful necklaces just start to happen without much effort.    

Charm necklace has clusters of beads and buttons in green and teal with silver charmsWhen designing jewelry I just love:
  1. silver and gold buttons
  2. pretty flower buttons linked in a row
  3. butterflies charms, ladybug charms and dragonfly charms
  4. heart shaped buttons and heart shaped beads
  5. trying new button and bead color combinations together
  6. adding unusual button shapes and textures
  7. shiny beads, faceted beads and
    2 toned beads
  8. layering charms over buttons
  9. small shiny accent beads
  10. oval and triangle jump rings to link fun buttons to other fun buttons and chain
If the jewelry design I'm working on doesn’t fall into place easily even with these inspirational tips, I put it aside for awhile and that usually does the trick. See my previous blog posts on the creative process called Making Jewelry is Easy and Fun.

Jewelry Design Made Fun and Easy, Part 2

Leaving unfinished jewelry design projects for another day doesn’t annoy me anymore, now it’s a creative tool I use. Fun time away from my new earring, bracelet and necklace designs lets my unconscious mind take over the creative process. Then when I’m ready to get back to my handmade jewelry creations I am bubbling over with new ideas and fun solutions.

Necklace has emerald green czech beads and bigger turquoise beads encircled in silver ringsAlso with many cute jewelry creations on the go I can pick the earring, bracelet, or necklace designs I want to work on first, if one drop dangle earring style doesn’t inspire me the next earring design will. I never approached making jewelry this way before, but it feels great not to force the creative process. Now I can leave a colorful beaded bracelet half finished and the next time I look at it, the bracelet will just need a small design adjustment.
 
Bracelet has bright purple flower buttons with small light purple accent beads in twist designIn the past I would never leave a new jewelry style half finished, but I learned my approach was not conducive to great design. Now I’m constantly in the process of starting new earring designs while finishing other colorful bracelet creations, or fun necklace styles. Since I am not fighting the creative process many fresh jewelry design ideas start filling my head and I must hurry to make them a reality.
 
If you liked reading about taking design breaks and having many jewelry design projects on the go, then check out my past blog on creative differences titled Making Jewelry With My Nieces.

My Jewelry Studio Expansion

Antique buttons used to make handmade earrings, bracelets and necklaces in the Flirty Fashion Jewelry StudioIn my growing jewelry design studio I collect and combine a wide variety of beads, buttons and charms. For my unique jewelry line I use semi-precious gemstones, fire polished czech beads, antique buttons, bright fashion buttons and anything interesting I can find. I’m always searching for bold shapes and eye catching colourful patterns to inspire me.

When I’m ready to create jewelry in my studio I make sure I have plenty of light and all my fun shiny buttons, beads and charms within easy reach. Then there are all my tools to bring out, I have so many different types of tools, that so far I don’t even use half of them.

I’m a full-time artist, turning what I love into a business. I love getting bright new beads and buttons in my studio, the textures and variations in colour give me a beautiful bold pallet of choice. I buy my beads and buttons on-line and in local stores, but I also collect them from pre-loved clothing and jewelry. And then there are relatives from far away places who send me interesting shiny trinkets and gems from where they are too.

Recently I’ve found I had no more room in my studio for all my wonderful beads, button and charms, so I’ve expanded. Now the rest of my home is literally a treasure trove of colourful semi-precious gemstones, fire polished czech beads and shiny antique buttons too. As I reorganize I see each day as an inspired adventure. It keeps Flirty Fashion Jewelry looking fresh, glamorous and original.

Jewelry Design Made Fun and Easy, Part 1

Charm bracelet has clusters of beads and buttons in sunshine yellow with silver charmsThe prettiest earring, necklace and bracelet designs happen when I’m happy and open to the creative process. Recently I designed a pair of long drop earrings and a charm bracelet that just weren’t going the way I planned. I was stuck, but after a refreshing break, my colourful jewelry designs came together better than I expected.

Long drop earrings have teal fashion buttons and small beads hanging from purple river stonesI see now that it’s important to take creative breaks to have a fresh perspective on my original jewelry designs. So when I create jewelry I enjoy taking small breaks to make lunch, or run errans. For instance when I can’t decide to use more buttons or beads in a new bold earring style, or I can’t decide if I should add another charm on a new fun bracelet, I allow myself to stop for awhile. It hardly seems like a real dilemma, but when I come back to those jewelry projects I feel inspired and can see clearly what to do next.

Unique Jewelry Designs with Buttons

Big Button Bracelet is the first bracelet I showed my sister when I started mixing colourful buttons and beads together in my original jewelry designs. The buttons add unusual textures, shapes and layering to my handmade jewelry for more fun, bold and even glamorous designs. I don’t limit my creativity anymore. Now my favorite items to add to earrings, bracelets and necklaces are vintage buttons, bold fashion buttons, shiny 2-toned beads and big silver charms.

Bold button bracelet has big green buttons accented with small shiny beads linked together with silver loopsMy original jewelry designs have beads, charms and unusual elements like buttons incorporated into the design, because I love telling a story with my earrings, bracelets and necklaces. For instance a big bold button bracelet can describe a woman as fun and free spirited, or a necklace with double rows of plunging buttons can highlight her sophistication and glamour.

I make new jewelry designs every few weeks. Then when I meet a sister or a friend at a coffee shop, I bring my new earring, bracelet and necklace designs along. Often friendly strangers will come up and want to see my bold bead and button jewelry too. I ask them what colours and styles they like best and if they want to try something on!

Making Jewelry With My Nieces

Long drop dangle earrings in yellow and orange have layered buttons hanging from large faceted beatMaking jewelry with my nieces is where I learned creative differences are wonderful. We have fun making beaded earrings, charm bracelets, and pendant necklaces. We use alot of cute charms, a crazy amount of beads, big buttons and anything else we can find. It’s a fun after school or summer break activity.
 
My nieces artistic choices inspire me. I may design a new pair of earrings with a combination of beads and buttons that I think work best and then my nieces take their beads and buttons and combine them differently. I like that, it reminds me that everyone is unique and that there are fun styles for each of us.
 
Flattering pink drop dangle earrings have 3 detailed buttons linked in long strand with silver loopsSince making jewelry with my nieces, I’m always interested in how people choose the designs they do. Now I show my new earring, necklace and bracelet designs to friends or family for their input. Sometimes everyone likes one style the most, other times they each pick a different jewelry design as their favorite.

Colourful Jewelry Attracts Attention

Beaded necklace has 3 strands of mingling blue and purple beads and buttons in shimmering loose twist styleWhen I’m designing jewelry with my many beads and buttons I can’t imagine a world without colour. Colour is my mood enhancer. If you want to add colour to your life wear jewelry! Colour shows passion, strength, individuality and style.
 
Colour attracts attention and many times the intensity of colour in a necklace or bracelet just can’t be found in fabric. A bright pair of earrings can accentuate your features like nothing else can, and that splash of colour from your necklace is a focal point even when paired with simple clothing styles and neutral colours.
 
 
Plunging necklace has double layers of green fashion buttons hanging pendant style from strands of silver chainIn my studio I have trays and trays of buttons and beads organized by colour. I love all colour combinations and use tone on tone, light with dark, or contrasting colours most in my designs. The choices inspire me to making a pair of earrings more dazzling, a bracelet more enchanting, or a necklace even bolder.

The Mermaid Strand Necklace shown above has alternating beads wth buttons on 3 strands. Contrasting light and dark coloured strands twist in sophisticated style enhancing your features.

Making Jewelry for Family and Friends Turns Addictive

At first I made jewelry as gifts for my friends and family to save money, but now each birthday gives me a chance to try something new and fun. Luckily my sisters, nieces and friends are happy to receive my experiments in original bead and button jewelry.

Edgy drop dangle earrings have striking dark pink buttons layered with bright pink textured buttonsIf you want to make jewelry for friends and family, plan to make more than one of any earring, bracelet or necklace style you create. So if for example you’re making earrings, once you’ve figured out the design of the first pair, the next pair you make will go much faster. There is also a cost savings to making multiples of your jewelry creations. Since beads, charms, clasps, and eye pins are usually sold in packages of 25, 50 or more, you can use up the excess materials just by making more jewelry.

Beware jewelry making is addictive. Once you’ve made a few really pretty pairs of earrings, or a small collection Diva worthy necklaces, you just want to make more. But this creative affliction to constantly make more jewelry can be a good thing, especially when one sister wants the bracelet you just gave to another sister. Now here within your own family you’ve found your first customer and all of a sudden you’re a jewelry designer with a small business.

Large Flirty Charm Earrings shown above and to the left, with silver pewter dog charms hanging over big fashion buttons were made for my niece’s birthday. I knew they would be perfect for her, because she loves anything with puppies on it. Also shown above and to the left are the same style of earrings with cute butterflies charms. I keep seeing more charms I just have to have.
