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.
