Easy Peasy Jewelry

>> Tuesday, January 26, 2010

I've been making some necklaces lately. Necklaces that are easy for little hands to put on and take off all by themselves - that is, necklaces without clasps. Do you know about memory wire? It's magical stuff! A coil of wire that opens easily so you can slip it around your neck (or wrist or finger), then springs back to its original shape. Jewelry made with this bit of magic is comfortable and easy to put on and take off. It comes in three sizes. Necklaces (choker-style), bracelets (which make great doll necklaces) and rings (which make perfect Barbie necklaces). And you can get it anywhere jewelry supplies are sold. It's simply fabulous for making jewelry for kids.

I've been focusing on the necklaces - 'cause that's the size I have on hand. You can see them here. I think Jo wants to make some to add to my shop - we'll see if we can find some pink and red beads in my stash and make some for Valentine's Day.
