Welcome to the Free Rediscover Your Creativity & Make Jewelry Mini eCourse.
This is a mini version of a week of Rediscover Your Creativity & Make Jewelry eCourse. It will give you a little taste of what the full eCourse is like, give you a creative boost, teach you jewelry making skills and then finally you’ll make a piece of jewelry.
(Note: Although this is a mini version of the eCourse, the full eCourse has more in it each week. There are more jewelry skills and more projects each week. I also include extra helpful tips and hints for creativity in the full eCourse.)

Here’s a PDF eBook on how to resize photos in a really simple, nontechnical way: Resizing Photos for Photo Charms
This is a short video about curb chain just in case you’re not familiar with working with it.
Opening & Closing Jump Rings:
Part 3: Jewelry Project
Now we’re going to put it all together and make a Souvenir Charm Bracelet, as I like to call it.
Your bracelet will most likely not look like mine because your experience was not the same as mine, but you can use the same techniques.
Tools and Materials:
- Clasp of your choice (I used a pewter toggle clasp)
- Photo charm (from Part 2)
- Bead dangles (I used about 25)
- Charms/Souvenirs *
- 4mm jump rings and other sizes of jump rings depending on what you’re adding to your charm bracelet
- Wire cutters
- Chain nose pliers
- Bent nose pliers
*In the video I show you some examples of what I added to my charm bracelet. You may have stopped by antique stores and found buttons or a crystal from a chandelier or found a tiny key or other interesting things. You may have found some other types of “souvenirs” you want to add.
In Week #1 of the full eCourse I show you how to wire wrap some different things, so if you have items you’re not sure to add to your charm bracelet, Rediscover Your Creativity & Make Jewelry eCourse will definitely show you how to do that.
Additionally, you may not have had the opportunity to pick up anything while on your creative expedition. That is fine. Use your inspiration now to gather up supplies. You may want to purchase special charms or see what you have in your stash that work perfectly.
