Apartments in Lady Lake, Florida, Are Great Places for Making Jewelry

Many people think that making jewelry is a complicated art form that should always be left to the professionals. Think again. Beautiful earrings, necklaces, and rings can be made right in your very own apartment if you have a few tools and a lot of creativity.

Earrings are often the simplest piece of jewelry to make because you don’t need large quantities of wire or complicated clasps. The first step to making earrings in our rental apartments in Lady Lake, Florida, will be choosing beads. You can go to any craft store or bead store and find a wonderful selection of colors and materials, including wood, shell, gemstone, glass, and many more.
Next, you will need to purchase the following items:

  • Needle nose pliers
  • A small pair of wire cutters
  • Headpins
  • Earring hooks

Choose the beads that you want to use and then slip them onto each headpin. Then take your needle nose pliers and hold the wire just above the top bead. Bend the wire over the pliers so that it forms a 90 degree angle. Next, bend the wire back over the round pliers in the opposite direction so that you have a small loop just above the top bead. Finally, hold the loop in place while you wrap the remaining wire around the base of the loop and the bead. When finished, slip your earring onto your earring hook. Voila! – A gorgeous pair of inexpensive earrings. This is a great way to make gifts for all of your friends.
