How to inspire Jewelry Making Creativity

Jewelry making requires the creativity, occasionally, though, our creativity needs an infusion of joy as well as inspiration. Always, creativity runs out of your everyday experiences and simple choices. Be engaged in the world around you. Be open to fresh experiences and try new things that will rejuvenate you.

Here are 10 suggestions to find that spot where inspiration and real life flow together, leading you to create wonderful and new jewelry making projects.

  1. Search for beauty around you. Like justa movie, concert, jewelry or art show. Artistic events and activities of all types can inspire jewelry-making in some ways u
  2. Read jewelry magazinesand books. Jewelry-making stories, pictures, history and instruction open design possibilities you may not have considered before.
  3. Study the creative lives of others and thinkabout what has inspired them. How did they move past their own creative blocks and hurdles when inspiration had gone into temporary hiding?
  4. Establish a comfortable work place. The right space needs to be equipped with tools that are appropriate for your design needs, and organized for your own work style. The lighting and temperature should be taken into Consideration. Good lighting will not only brighten your spirit, but will be also helpful to your eyes. A positive work space is one of the elements that will inspire your creativity.
  5. Let music inspire you. Scientific research suggests that music can improve visual attention, increase happiness and inspire creative thoughts. Many people tap into music both to nourish their imagination and boost their energy levels. Music can be like a rocket launcher of creativity.
  6. Take a moment to recall successes, what you have accomplished and challenges you have met. Recall encouraging words people have spoken to you and replay them. With a familiar product you love, design a piece you know will be successful.
  7. Or, push into the limits of what you know, and then past that into what you think you can’t do. Challenge yourself to learn a new skill. Enter a jewelry-making contest. Take challenges or limitations and embrace them.
  8. Experiment with a new product or gem that excites you. Spark your creativity with a color you’ve rarely used in designs. Do you work primarily with glass beads? What about shell, metal or pearls?
  9. Many creative people have a deep kinship with nature. In fact, throughout time, many artists have found nature to be the primary inspiration for their work. Being outdoors restores the spirit and inspires the senses. Time spent in nature evokes new creative ideas.
  10. Take a break. Sometimes, simply taking a break and letting go for a short time could be the ticket to hit some new ideas. Remember that the creative journey is about joy–for you and for all of those who will discover and wear your beautiful jewelry.

Creative challenges, boredom, the proverbial ‘wall’ and setbacks happen to nearly all artists. Let them become fertile ground to initiate new designs or jewelry lines. Getting back in the groove is unique for every designer. This is a list of just ten possibilities. There are many more ways to reignite those creative fires. Keep looking for that sparkle. And, don’t ever give up.

How to braid rainbow bracelet with one string?

Step1: Braid first sun knot with one string

Unlike the sun knot tying techniques in our learning center, here we divide the knot into two parts:
1st, cut a length of 2mm nylon thread, fold in half;
2nd, create a loop with right working end, keep the end over the vertical parallel lines;
3rd, work the second loop using the left working end, over the right end. Go under the folded loop and then through the first loop from back to front;
4th, make the folded loop a proper size and then pull the ends tautly and this is one part of the sun knot. ;
5th, repeat the processes 1~4 with left working end firstly;
6th, tighten your ends.
You’ve done your first complete sun knot!

String Jewelry

Do you like Jewelry made of string ? There are a lot of string for jewelry making out there. How do you know which beading thread, cord or wire to use for your jewelry-making projects? Learn what the best stringing supplies are made with and their intended uses to help ensure you’re applying them well.

The stringing and wire that you choose for your necklace or other wearable jewelry is determined by both your budget and your personal design style.

There are many different types of jewelry stringing materials and it can be confusing to know which one to choose for your project. We’ll be explaining more about the most common stringing materials that you’ll find and what they are best used for.

Jewelry-making cord tends to be thicker than thread, often used as a design element itself in braiding, lacing, knotting and other applications.

Beading thread

Beading threads is the stringing material of choice for seed bead projects, bead embroidery, weaving, loom work, and more. When you string together tiny little seed beads. These threads should be used with a special beading needle that will fit through the seed bead holes.

Cord

  1. Leather cord

Genuine leather cord is a popular material to use for stringing beads with large holes and it looks great on its own as a necklace with just a simple pendant attached. Leather cord is often used in modern casual style or bohemian style jewelry.

Wrap bracelets are on trend at the moment and rather than using leather cord for stringing, you can use two lengths of cord to wrap beads around. Leather cord is very strong and easy to work with. It make knots well, although knots can be quite large depending on the thickness of the cord you’re using.

  1. Faux leather cord

This is a strong material that looks similar to leather cord. It’s robust enough to use for many jewelry-making projects and stands up well when it gets wet – however it doesn’t stand well to extremely low temperatures. Imitation cord is machine made, which means it’s more uniform in size and color than genuine leather cord.

  1. Cotton cord

Waxed cotton cord is a good alternative to use for bracelets and necklaces if you don’t want to use leather. It’s good for stringing and knotting and is usually regular in color and size. It’s pretty much water resistant so you won’t need to worry about it breaking down.

Wire

Flexible beading wire is a stringing material made from metal that is often used for wire-wrapping, creating coils, weaving, making findings and more.

Jewelry making wire allows you endless opportunity in creativity!

 

Hope this overview of jewelry stringing materials will be helpful so that you can choose the right one of the string materials for your jewelry making project with ease!
