This week at One Artsy Mama, we're talking about five ideas for memorable homemade holiday gifts. Here's what we have so far:
3. Family Jewelry
Do you have a mom or a grandmother who has everything? Here are a few ideas for some jewelry that will touch her heart this Christmas.
Another great project even if you're a first time jewelry maker is this ring using a photo of a child's artwork. All you need is a ring blank, a small photo of whatever artwork you want to use, some scissors, and Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. Click here for my full tutorial.
You can also substitute sheet music if the recipient is a music-lover, or a page from a dictionary or other book.
Of course, using a photo is always a great way to personalize a piece of jewelry. All you need is your picture and a photo charm. More advanced jewelry makers can add a birthstone as well.
Any kind of jewelry that represents someone's family is always a treasure. These pieces in my Etsy shop are designed to do just that: peas in a pod, bird nests, family birthstone necklaces, and even necklaces to represent an only child like Little Crafter! Make your own version, or, if you're not into wire wrapping, I'd be happy to create a one of a kind piece for you.
