Coloring for Adults: Textured Metal Bracelets
Create armloads of colorful, lightweight, inexpensive brass bracelets using just a few basic tools!
We created several custom color blends of 4mm Swarovski bicone crystals (or Crystal Jams) inspired by our favorite songs! Keep a few jams on hand to add a bit of sparkle to your designs — these harmonized palettes of beads are perfect when playing with color!
How-to Create a Custom Essential Oil Infused, Gemstone & Crystal Tassel Bracelet
This bracelet can be customized to include personal elements, represented by:
- Gemstones and their properties (chakra, metaphysical, healing…)
- Aromatherapy/essential oil blends and their uses (mosquito repellent, stress-relief, calming…)
- Color intention and symbolism (harmony, strength, stability…)
Using a small corked glass dome, create a custom mini terrarium necklace! DIY wearable cloche planters are very simple to make by following the steps in this tutorial. This tiny fairy garden is made of moss, crystal points, and Swarovski crystal blossoms. Personalize your wearable planter with anything you choose, as the basic assembly techniques will likely be similar.
Great prices on new styles of gold fill and sterling silver finger rings!
We just expanded our selection of wholesale priced base metal ready-to-wear rings in antique silver, antique brass, and antique copper platings. Smaller sized rings can be used as pinky, midi or knuckle rings. Larger sizes work for thumb rings.
Cabochon flowers are a super easy way to add a splash of color to your life! With flat backs for easy gluing, they’re a cinch to add to any number of craft projects. This tutorial shows you how to embellish the flowers then add them to bobby pins to make sparkling DIY hair accessories. It’s a great project for kids, seniors, girly get-togethers and parties.
Only a few supplies are required:
If desired, color the flower using paint dabbers. While the paint is still wet, dip the outer petals into glitter. If you’re not coloring your flower first, add a light layer of glue to the outer petals before dipping them in the glitter.
Apply the adhesive dot to the pad of the bobby pin.
Attached your embellished posie and you’re done!
Have fun & sparkle on!

A four-piece jewelry making tool set and basic assembly techniques are all you need to create this stunning bracelet. I recommend using the Chain Stā tool which suspends the bracelet horizontally making it easier to see where you are placing charms.
