Upcycle: Jewellery

More crafting! Some of the best places to get craft supplies (for cheap) are from thrift stores and other second hand stores. I love buying old jewellery, packages of unused  and forgotten beads and making them into beautiful new jewellery. Below are some examples of things I’ve made from thrift store beads and wires. Any earring hook wires or earring findings (the bits that go into the actual ear), I buy new or disinfect them for health purposes. If I am selling the earrings and not keeping them for myself, I always buy the hook wires new and never used.

If you feel uninspired, stop by your local thrift store and see if you can find any objects that inspire you to craft and create!
