Jewelry Knock-Off To-Do List {And Call for More Ideas}

As a jewelry maker, I love being able to look at jewelry online or in a store and be able to say, "oh! I can make that!" I've been enjoying making some knock-offs lately, and I'm challenging myself to make more!

I also would LOVE to get some ideas from my fabulous readers.  Do you have your eye on a lovely piece of jewelry that's way too overpriced...and you wish you knew how to DIY it?? Please, leave me a comment!! I'm going to try to do at least one knock-off a month and would love some more inspiration.

Here are some of the pieces on my to-do list:

  5. I've seen lots of amazing jewellery I think I could make (I used to make a jewellery once upon a time - although not with your skill!). But I often find I can find a similar knockoff at Target or other budget stores that is cheaper than I could get the supplies anyway. I think the beads are a lot more expensive where I am though! I love the colourblocked necklace - gorgeous! xx

  6. I honestly think about doing this every time I see a new necklace or earrings. I just ordered supplies off ebay this weekend to make a necklace I saw that was $99!!! Could never bring myself to pay that price. I made a DIY statement necklace here and the idea of it came from an expensive piece.
