How to make natural jewelry

How would you like to try yr hand at making yr own jewelry?
The article below will show you how.

sell shell necklaces very cheaply. Those shells have the
necessary holes in them.

I would buy lots of those, cut them up and make beautiful
shell earrings make with wooden beads.

With jewelry making a dash of creativity and whatever you
can get your hands on is all you ever need.
