The DIY snowflake jewelry that will rise up your Christmas collection

Create a stunning jewelry look using chains and metal snowflake

The DIY snowflake jewelry that will rise up your Christmas collection

The Fun time of the year

The holiday season is characterized by an insane panic of shopping.

People rush to reserve attractions and find solutions for children’s holidays, the shopping malls are crowded with people, internet is overflooded with surfers who are craving after products ...

Cheer up, it supposed to be a happy and fun time of the year!

 

 

Create special jewelry for the upcoming holiday season

As an owner of jewelry designing and selling business, you probably know that this is your time to sell more, but it will not hurt to get another reminder - how to leverage this mass and create jewelry masterpieces that will stand out.

So, first of all, you're in the right field. That's exactly the time of the year for the jewelry industry, starting from October and November with the crazy shopping and as if that's not enough, the days of Christmas are proving every year that people can always buy more.

 

in the pictures Above and below: the same making technique for the bracelet.

 

I have to say that lately there is a trend among people to look for the high-quality DIY's presents for the special ones (especially during the Christmas holidays). You know how hard it is to find a truly high-quality product among the mountains of cheap jewelry imitations.

 

 

Glittering snowflakes and delicate metals

This year is marked by glittering snowflakes and delicate metals with crystal touches. Inspired by this, you can see that, by simply playing with the most basic raw materials, long chains that compliment the body you can create exactly that fashionable Hollywood look that your customers are looking for.

 

Above: easy to set snowflake earrings.

 

Get the shiny look:

First of all start with planning your future jewelry structure, it is recommended draw a simple sketch of the length and sizes of your future necklace.

then using a cutter tool to cut the chain into the necessary sizes.

 

In order to get this shiny look, we used the Nickel and Shiny Silver plating colors and White crystal Swarovski color combination.

Gita offers a big variety of snowflakes, stars, charms for the Christmas and so on.

In this inspiration, I used the Thin Cable Oval link Chain and 4.9x3.8mm Oval link chain in Nickel plating, and faceted extension chain with jump rings. Of curse, you can use other types of metal chains.
For this chain, you don't need any extra loops to attach connectors to the chain. All you need to do is to open end loops of the chain with Plier Tools, put the metal star connectors and close it.

 

The metal plating colors used in this inspiration are:
Nickel and Shiny silver

 

We used White Opal, Crystal Clear, and Crystal AB Swarovski colors.

 

 

Above: components and tools that we used for this inspiration

 

Usage

In laying the stone is more than just a special adhesive for jewelry (E6000 or Swarovski glue) to hold the stone and maintain the delicate finish and prevent its fall.

Connecting the most simple parts does not require prior knowledge using 2 fliers and loops (do not forget to choose them with appropriate coatings)
