Do It Yourself Jewelry Lessons

There is a website where you can get how-to-make instructions for lots of different kinds of jewelry. Some easy, some advanced. Lots of fun just to browse.

JewelryLessons and I click around periodically. I had so many comments about guitar pick earrings from friends and colleagues some time ago, that I took photos of the basic steps and decided others could copy. Thus I became a 'teacher'.

My romantic heart necklace is the one that seems to be picked up every couple months. That's $1.50 into my paypal every time without further effort on my end! SWEET!

Basic Dotted Wire Shape
The lesson shows how to make the curly wire necklace, but has alternative ideas also shown in the steps.

This DIY lesson has been bought 10 times for a total income to me of $15.00. Nice!

So Pandora! I just tried it for the first time and will use it plenty. It is great for working at my cubicle computer instead of connecting my phone to the USB port and using 'Tune In Radio'.
