Make it a mission to make gifts for the upcoming holidays. These DIY jewelry pieces are easy to make and take very little time to create. It can be a fun community service project to make for women and children's shelters too. Just remember to be a little selfish and make a few for yourself!

To Make DIY Designer Jewelry, you will need the following supplies from your local hobby store. We shopped at Joann's Fabrics.

● Bead Landing Fish Hook Earrings

● Darice Jewelry Designer Brass Head Pins

● Swarovski Crystals in your Favorite colors

● Blue Moon Beads

● Seed Beads

This project is quick and simple for teens. It also makes a great slumber party activity for teens. You don't need a tutorial- it is very self-explanatory. Just follow the simple instructions below while looking at our sample pieces. We used blue Swarovski and clear crystals with a mix of other crystals to make the hook-style earrings.

To make the larger crystals, we used a longer pinhead, cut off the flat end, strung the bead, and crimped the end. Then, we added blue and clear crystals and crimped them to the fishhook.

For the second pair of earrings, we used the 2" brass head pin and loaded on the Swarovski clear crystal, added a blue moon bead, and repeated with another clear crystal. Then, we followed with another blue moon bead, a couple of seed beads and one last blue moon bead before crimping the fishhook.

The earrings were all completed in less than 30 minutes. Use any leftover beads to make matching bracelets.
