IY Colorblock Earrings ~ Revamp your plain hoop earrings with some embroidery thread.  All you have to do is wrap the thread around the earring and super glue your ends to keep from coming loose. 7.  DIY Rhinestone Earrings ~ Look at these gorgeous hoop earrings!  I love the mixtureof rhinestone chain and eye pins that hangs from the hoops.  The step by step tutorial is so easy to follow, if you have not made jewelry before this post will definitely inspire you to give it a try.
Here's a space-saving trick: Opt for an open-face box that you can mount right onto the wall. When a shadow box is unavailable, any well-chosen crate, bin, or orphaned drawer can be retrofitted with a variety of hooks and knobs, turning your earrings and chains into objets d'art. Small decorative bowls perched on the box's lower ledge corral rings, pins, and brooches and complete the charming trinket tableau.
Over time, the pieces of jewelry that you frequently wear might begin to develop a grimy layer of dirt that can cause even the brightest of your gemstones look dull. To bring back the sparkle you can take your jewelry to a professional to clean it. However, this can take time and get rather expensive. A more convenient, and inexpensive way to clean your jewelry is to make a homemade jewelry cleaner and clean your pieces at home.

If soaking the jewelry doesn’t clean the pieces well enough, you can use an old soft bristle toothbrush to get a more in-depth clean. Place the brush in the cleaner and gently tap around the mounting with the bristles of the brush. This should help remove any grime and dirt that may have built up in the crevices and around the mount. Dip the ring back in the solution to remove any loose dirt, rinse and place on the towel to dry.


Unlike other precious metals, gold doesn’t tarnish over a period. That doesn’t mean, however, that you don’t need to keep it clean. The oils and dirt from your hands can quickly make it look dull. The baking soda, salt, and aluminum foil used to create this homemade gold jewelry cleaner generate a chemical exchange called an ion transfer, which is a natural way to clean metals.
I used to make and sell a “purple jewelry cleaner” that was also amazing but only knew how to make it in 55 gallon drums! Was biodegradable and non-toxic! Anyway, the reason why these cleansers should never be used on Pearls, Opals and costume jewelry, is because they are considered soft stones, they have to be glued into their setting, rather than prong set. Most cleansers will destroy the glue, at least over time. Costume jewelry stones are also usually glued in rather than the labor intensive work of prong set, to keep cost down and make it more affordable. Costume jewelry is also made with “slag” metal or junk metal, definitely sub-standard and doesn’t usually hold up against cleansers either. They can turn ugly colors and sometimes, even soften the metals used in costume jewelry. I don’t claim to know everything about anything but I do know a lot about jewelry cleaners, having sold ours for 25 years all over the country.
DIY Confetti Earrings ~ Create your own gorgeous paper confetti earrings with a few items.  All you need is a hole punch, hot glue, thin wire and earring hooks.  They are definitely delicate, but who cares when you paid next to nothing for them.  15.  How to Make Paper Earrings ~ Colorful dangly earrings are a fun accent to any outfit.  They are even better when they are light weight and don’t pull on your ear lobes.  These amazing earrings are made from card stock.  You can cut your desired shape from a paper punch, Cricut or Silhouette and add a layer of crystal accents.

Over time, you may notice that your silver jewelry is looking tarnished and you have wondered how to clean a silver necklace or bracelet. Jewelry tarnishes because the sulfur that is present in the air creates a chemical reaction to the silver. This homemade silver cleaner is simple to make and won’t cost you a ton of money because most of the ingredients are ones you probably already have in your pantry.
Tea tree oil is a known disinfectant and anti-fungal. It isn’t completely necessary to add to your jewelry cleaner, but as I said above, my jewelry can get pretty gross. A small drop of tea-tree oil adds a real antiseptic boost to this homemade jewelry cleaner, so I’m happy to add it. Like I said – I’ve cleaned the chicken coop wearing my wedding rings. I’ll take all of the natural antiseptic power I can get.

Remember those silhouettes that you made for your mom when you were a kid? Well, this jewelry organizer uses the same concept only you get a great bust that you can use to keep necklaces and other jewelry untangled and organized. It’s really easy and cheap to make and so adorable that you’ll want it just for the decorative purposes alone. Plus, you can use any number of templates to create it, even your own silhouette (you remember how to do those, right?). This is great for bulkier necklaces that won’t fit in the jewelry box and it would make the perfect gift.

This is amazing! I have few silver necklaces and bracelets that I really like and I have for many years. They have became very dark with time and I didn’t even try to clean them yet! Now that I see this post I think that it is about time to clean my silver jewelry! I know that baking soda has great cleaning abilities so I am sure that the result will be really nice! Thanks for sharing! Greetings!

This is such a fun project and would make the perfect gift (the holidays are just around the corner, you know). You will need plaster of course, plus a mold and paint if you want to paint it. The great thing is that you can use rubber gloves as a mold and they are much cheaper than a real mold. This is the perfect thing for the dresser and will really help you to keep your rings and bracelets organized.
I used Color Oops on my hair and forgot to remove my rings before rinsing. I looked at my hand to discover my BIG ring was yellow and black with a slight oil slick color in spots (rainbow). I immediately got upset and started to panic. I tried your recipe in a small tupperware lined with foil. IT WORKED!!!! My ring is back to the original three colors.
