Look for materials that spark joy, and get creative with the designs. Think of styles that reflect your personality and customize the design to make it unique.
Adding a Personal Touch
Adding a personal touch can help make a gift even more meaningful. Think of the person you are gifting to and pick a design or piece of jewelry that fits their personality.
Consider a favorite color, motif, or symbol, and incorporate it into the design. If you feel creative, you can make the item using beading supplies.
Once you have the piece of jewelry, add some special touches. Personalize the item with charms or engrave a name or special message. You can even add a special note or poem accompanying the jewelry.
