Give the Gift of Handmade Jewelry!

If you’re a jewelry designer, you know that your friends and family are expecting fabulous handmade jewelry this holiday season. Sometimes it can be overwhelming, but making great jewelry doesn’t have to be too time consuming or break the bank.

Every year, Mari designs a handful of jewelry as gifts to send overseas for her friends and family. She makes some of her favorite simple pieces from the Inspiration Gallery, pieces inspired by the gallery, and her own unique designs.

Below she was inspired by the beautiful blues in the Going Loopy earrings. As you can see, she took that hue and designed multiple pieces using different shapes and sizes of Swarovski Crystals.
All of these designs are quick-and-easy and make perfect gifts for loved ones. Mari even made the Watermelon bangle bracelet and Emerald Edge necklace below from the new book Make It Sparkle by Lindsay Burke!
You can’t go wrong with a sparkling pair of Swarovski Crystal earrings, and this design below is so simple and budget friendly! Who wouldn’t love multiple pairs of these stunning earrings in different colors? All you need to make them yourself are Swarovski Crystal Rivoli Stones, Glue-In Rivoli Charms by TierraCast®, ear wires and glue! For step-by-step instructions make sure you take a look at our Vintage Chic earrings.

Since Mari has all of her fabulous gifts pinned to boards and laid out, she’s able to make sure she has everything needed to send gifts off to family and friends in a snap this season.
