DIY Easy Charm Necklace Tutorial from Flamingo Toes here. I really like all of Bev’s tutorials because they are so easy to follow and you always learn something new. This is a beginner level tutorial and you could leave out the big piece and attach charms to just the ring - and there are charms for everything now.

DIY 2 Bike Charm Bracelets. I’m posting this as a reminder of how easy it is to make use a favorite charm into a bracelet or necklace. Charity and craft fairs are coming up because of the nearing holidays and these can be produced quickly and easily.
truebluemeandyou: Jewelry Supplies. I’m reblogging this because of questions about where to get unique charms. Not all of these are available because of rotating stock. I really like Ornamentea for unique vintage one of a kind lots.
Where to buy unique DIY jewelry supplies. I’ve gotten two messages asking where I buy jewelry supplies. I buy a lot at Michaels (because it’s local), ebay and etsy. I love Rio Grand for high end jewelry supplies (like sterling silver ball chain). Ornamentea and Objects and Elements both have rotating stocks of unique supplies.

- Cameo Skull and other Macabre Jewelry Supplies from Etsy here.
- Examples of Ornamentea’s jewelry supplies here. LOVE their mini bottles. Some of the links don’t work because of rotating stock.
- Objects and Elements/Ornamantea jewelry supplies here. Again, some of the links to specific supplies may not work because they are sold out.
- Charms on Etsy here. These 36 keys cost $11.50 + $3.80 for shipping.
