Statement jewelry is where it’s at, and I’m loving it. A simple outfit is suddenly transformed into a put-together, fashionable ensemble with the addition of a bold accessory, and these daring darlings are just so cool looking. They’re big. They’re in bright, commanding colors. They’re not afraid to take center stage, and you should follow suit. DIY some statement jewelry for yourself and take the accessory world by storm.
1. Diamonds are a DIYer’s Best Friends
Okay, so maybe it’s not exactly the diamond necklace you had in mind, but, in my opinion, it’s better. Use up a scrap piece of leather to craft this sleek creation and let your new leather pendant speak for itself. Find the full tutorial here.
2. Does Your Geo Hang Low
These dangly geo-painted beads are like chandeliers for your ears. Arguably, that’s what most earrings are like, but these more so because I said so. The best thing is, you don’t have to spend an arm and leg to make them. Find the full tutorial here.
3. Teardrops of Joy
This necklace is very “purple rain” in the best of ways. With ombre teardrop beads hanging off and super sleek clear beads as a base, this necklace would be a classy focal point for the ensemble of your choosing. Find the full tutorial here.
4. Never Never Land of Necklaces
I can’t get enough of Peter Pan collars. They manage to make me look pulled together no matter what the rest of me looks like, and I really appreciate that. Here’s a DIY mock Peter Pan collar necklace that you can throw on over a shirt you’re trying to dress up (or just trying to look extra super cute in). Find the full tutorial here.
5. Stone’s Throw Away From Fabulous
This big stone pendant bracelet is sure to draw a crowd, and it’ll go with anything! Because you’re making it yourself, you crafty thing, you can pick your own stones and control the color and style. You can easily make this by filling a copper test cap with stones and jewelry pendant gel. Find the full tutorial here.
6. Floral Delight
I want to make this necklace immediately and never take it off my body. It’s mint and floral-ish and big and perfect. You could throw it on over a tank top and jeans and look like you were about to walk down the red carpet. I want it now, and so should you. Find the full tutorial here.
7. Show Me The Ropes
Not only does making this necklace allow you to be a bold, fashion-forward dresser, but it also allows you to get a little crochet practice. I know I could use some of that, and if the incentive if this necklace as a result, I’d be up for the task. Find the full tutorial here.
8. Cool Jewels
To shake things up a bit, try making this spin on the chunky necklace: the chunky earrings. Your lobes will thank you for the trendy adornment, and you’ll thank yourself for the new statement accessory in your jewelry box. Find the full tutorial here.
9. Crystal Castles (On Your Finger)
“Are those crystals on your ring? Oh, how mystical of you. You’re so cool. You made it yourself?! Ugh I hate you. I wish I was you.” This is the predicted reaction to you wearing this ring outside. Bring on the haters. Find the full tutorial here.
10. Scarf Art
This bold beauty is made from a scarf and styrofoam balls. Its baubles are so captivating that you’ll get double-takes and the satisfaction of knowing that your own two hands are the reason why. Find the full tutorial here.
