I have a thing for earrings, and I like to make them, too. I recently found a jewelry making website with tutorials, which I thought I would share with you. It's Rena Klingenberg's Jewelry Making Journal: The Friendly Community. The several tutorials I looked at inspired me to think about taking a creative leap in my earring making! If you click on the "Jewelry Making" tab at the top of the page, you'll find a drop-down menu with links to 15 aspects of jewelry making--one devoted exclusively to earrings!
Of course we have several books on making jewelry in our crafts collection, including these:
Olver, Elizabeth. Jewelry Making Techniques Book: Over 50 Techniques for Creating Eyecatching Contemporary and Traditional Designs. [739.27 OLV]
Peck, Denise. 101 Wire Earrings: Step-by-Step Projects & Techniques. [739.27 PEC]
Wire-Wrapped and Beaded Jewelry. [745.5942 WIR]
Get creative in 2013! You can start simply with wire and a pair of needle-nose pliers!
