Not Your Typical Jewelry Components

As jewelry makers, we often fall into a rut. We find that our pieces all begin to look similar. We reach for our "go-to" jewelry supplies, and inevitably, we end up with finished projects that all resemble previous projects. For some, that is not a bad thing. If you are a jewelry maker who is simply creating jewelry for fun and not for sale, you may just like to make the same types of projects over and over again because it is what you love to do and you have gotten very good at it. For others, who perhaps have regular customers or a large family that is regularly receiving the finished projects as gifts, redundant and similar jewelry could present a problem. In this issue of Simply Beads I thought it would be fun to go beyond the typical jewelry components and share with you a fun way to incorporate everyday hardware pieces into your jewelry projects!
