Fun Crafts for Teens Making Jewellery

Jul 23, 2008
Many teen girls look for a new hobby to start. Making jewellery is an ideal hobby for teen girls to have. Jewellery making is fun and very creative. This hobby is one that will enable them to make inexpensive gifts for family and friends. They can take pride in making beautiful jewellery that they can wear to school, work and special events.

Jewellery making is an easy hobby for teen girls to start. Beading is most likely the easiest type of jewellery to make. To make bead jewellery, you need elastic stretch cord, beads and a bead board. A bead board is used to design any of your beaded creations. You lay out your beaded necklace, earrings, bracelet or anklet out on the bead board to see if you like the way the beads go together.

When you like the way the beads look with each other, you know you've got a great combination that will make jewellery you'll love. Using a bead board makes making bead jewellery so much easier. This saves you time and also keeps your precious beads from slipping and rolling all over the place. Losing beads while working on projects can be quite frustrating, and can get very expensive.

There are many different types of beads to select from. You can make beads out of just about any type of material you can think of. There are paper beads that you can buy or make. You can also purchase gemstone beads; often these are quite popular as many teen girls love to create gemstone jewellery with their birthstone gemstones. Beads are also made out of metal, plastic and clay. Lots of teen girls make their own beads out of polymer clay. This clay comes in many fun colors and is easily baked in a conventional oven. It is easy to use and gets very attractive results.

There are many jewellery making classes available to teach this hobby to teen girls. Teen girls can also learn this hobby simply by reading from a book or even discovering projects on the Internet. Many jewellery supply stores list free projects and this is a great way to learn jewellery making as you discover projects that appeal to you. Often when we find a project that appeals to us, we feel challenged to learn exactly how to make that specific craft and discover the techniques to make it.

Jewellery making is an ideal hobby for a teen girl because so many of them simply love fashion. Not only do they love fashion, their tastes and preferences change as fast as the wind blows and the seasons change. Making their own jewellery can be a great way to make any outfit look attractive and to stretch a teen's fashion budget. They can easily move into the latest trends by making jewellery that suits that trend. By trying out this jewellery for a while, they can also see if they like that trend, without making a big fashion commitment.

There is also a great sense of pride that comes from being able to make something with your own two hands. Anyone feels pride when they do something, this is especially important for teens. Teenage girls often have trouble with low self-esteem. Giving them a hobby where they learn how to create something original and creative is a great way to give their self-esteem a real boost. Giving a teenage girl the hobby of jewellery making could be so helpful, as they learn how to make jewellery for themselves and others. It is a wonderful way to express themselves.

Jewellery making is an ideal hobby for any teen girl. This is a portable craft that can be easily taken on vacation or anywhere that the family goes. It can be done in any season. Many projects can be completed in an afternoon or a weekend. Jewellery making is fun, and just keeps getting better!
