Amethyst Dreams Necklaces and Ring

Learning Center - Explore thousands of Jewelry Ideas and Inspirations





Designed by Cynthia Kimura and Artbeads

Inspiration for making fabulous jewelry can come from anywhere. A fun way to get inspired is with secondhand jewelry pieces. Vintage pieces of costume jewelry were used to inspire these designs. Brooches become pendants in beautiful necklaces and a ring gets new life with help from some epoxy clay and Swarovski flatbacks. Take a look in your junk jewelry box or find some pieces at your local thrift store and start creating your own upcycled jewelry! Even if they're missing stones, you can always use flatbacks to bling up pieces as much as you want. See more ideas for reusing jewelry pieces in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
