The safety-pin bracelet

Using safety pins to create a wonderful, posh arm adornment might seem intimidating, but we guarantee that the procedure is very simple. All you have to do is attach ten pins to a chain, and repeat the same move to assemble as many chains as possible. Then, you need to use two jump rings to link all of the chains. In order to do that you have to open one jump ring with a pair of needle-nose pliers, thread it through the small circle of the last pin in every chain, and close the ring. Follow the same steps with a jump ring on the other extremity of the chains, and close the ring after sliding on a swiveling lobster clasp. Since this season gold is the most fashionable color, we advise you to opt for golden safety pins, chains, jump rings, and a gold swiveling lobster to learn how to make handmade jewelry that can help you achieve a modern look.

The spoon ring

If you want to learn how to make handmade jewelry, we advise you to start with the most simple tutorials. Because making a spoon ring is very easy, you should consider this idea as a method to improve your skills. Here are the supplies that you’ll need to make a trendy ring which wraps up your finger: one sterling silver spoon, a metal cutter, a coarse grit sandpaper(or a metal file), a ring mandrel, paper and a pen.

  • The first step that you need to take is measure your finger by cutting a strap of paper, and wrapping it around the finger where you want to wear the ring. Make a sign where it overlaps.
  • Next, you need to cut the handle of your silverware right above the bowl, and file the cut end with a file or a sandpaper to obtain a smooth finish.
  • The following step might require some physical force, because this is where you have to bend the spoon. Depending on your preferences, you can use the hammer to bend it around a dowel, or you can heat it with a butane torch to make bending easier.
  • Wrap a cloth around the hammer’s head and secure it in place with a string or a rubber band, because that will prevent scratches and other inconveniences from appearing. However, if you decide to heat it, make sure that it won’t turn orange.
  • Polish the ring for a sparkly finish, and enjoy your new accessory.
