DIY Bracelets at the Boston Bead Store

I don’t know if it is a product of blogging and constantly trying to be more creative, but I’m suddenly so interested in do-it-yourself projects. When I heard about the Boston Bead Store (there is one in Cambridge and one in Salem) I was so excited. The store allows you to buy the materials AND work on your creations in the store. I went with some friends and we sat there for nearly three hours creating new bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.

The hardest part was narrowing down the options to come up with one thing I wanted to work on. I ended up opting for a bangle-style bracelet and using these great colorful beads. As soon as I finished with this creation (which is sure to make a showing on this blog soon) I started thinking of all the new bracelets I could create. I’m seeing lots of DIY jewelry in the future.

Tip: Instead of purchasing your next jewelry piece try making it instead. You might be surprised what you can create.

    We used to have an adorable little shop in our town called ‘The Beadery’…full of all kinds of beautiful beads in cute bowls. We would mix & match and DIY our own jewelry. So fun! This reminds me of that. Looks like a great time. My favorite though is your coral stone necklace! stunning!

    This is such a fabulous idea. I have a lot of jewerly making supplies, and often think that I need to host a jewelry making party…the only problem is most of my friends aren’t as crazy about crafts as I am…boo :(

    I stumbled upon this in trying to find a local place to make jewelry. Do you need to have experience in order to just walk in?
