Handmade gifts sometimes get a bad reputation but sometimes they can be just as beautiful as the store bought fashion jewelry. While some of the tutorials for jewelry can be a little complicated, these are a cinch to make. Find some beads and let’s get started.
Memory Wire Bracelets
I love memory wire bracelets.They are the easiest thing you will ever make besides a strung necklace. The hardest thing about memory wire is deciding what beads you are going to use.

Braided Memory Wire Bracelet by Desperate Craftwives (Intermediate)
Leather Wrap Bracelets
Leather is definitely on trend this season. These easy leather wrap bracelets are sure to be a big hit with those who want something that is edgy and yet fashionable.
I am not talking about those looms that use those rubber bands but actual beading looms. The great thing about Loom Bracelets is that you can use almost anything to make them. You are open to your imagination.
Earrings are a great gift to give to someone. They can be flashy or subtle. Crystal beauties that glisten in the winter moonlight or reminiscent of a warm spring day. Whatever your style, there is an earring for that.
I hope these tutorials have given you some ideas on how to make your holiday a little more handmade.
Happy Handmade Holidays!
