Handmade Jewellery - Making Your Own Ethnic Jewellery

Began doing this handcrafted jewellery class in January, as one of my New Year resolutions. All that can be said is  that I am really carrying it through, and I have to say it feels fantastic. Up to now I have crafted a copper ring as well as a copper and brass pendant. The ring was easy to make, with a little hammering but the pendant took me three courses to finish. 

Copper bangle
This week I am going to be trying my hand at a bangle. Tomorrow, I have already cut out the metal and warmed through the metal and certainly will begin twisting it into shape. Making handcrafted jewellery demands a lot of hard work. It gets easier once you understand what you do but it is also quite healing wearing more particularly and jewellery ethnic jewellery designs which you have handcrafted yourself. When clients respect my ring and pendant and inquire where I got it, I can not tell you how I swell with pride when I say, "I made it myself". They generally cannot believe that it's jewellery I made myself.

I recall that though I had the confidence to wear the clothing I sewed, I never took up sewing years back actually. To be honest I never had the patience for stitching with making, and even though you do need patience, I do not appear to mind. Fire for whatever you're doing makes all the difference and I don't have any assurance problems wearing the fruits of my labour.

Handcrafted jewellery presents
Quite soon I understood that I am going to be making my very own handcrafted jewellery presents for Christmas and birthday gifts for family as well as friends apart from being exceptional and specific, which I understand they'll cherish for quite a while. Actually folks are asking me if I can make them a chunky pendant like my own. It is wonderful when you make just what suits you particularly since ethnic jewellery actually appeals to me and can affect jewellery design.

Handcrafted jewellery class
In case you enjoy wearing handcrafted jewellery, in that case why don't you find yourself and get your hands dirty a class. As a beginner you'd need at least a 12 week class (attending once weekly for between 2 - 2 ½ hrs per session) to wet your appetite for jewellery making. A class that provides various levels of development for example beginner, intermediate, advanced is excellent in order to continue and move up as your skills progress.
