Welcome to A Homemade Christmas! This is No. 2 of 4 A Homemade Christmas events.
I hope you’ll join us in sharing about homemade gifts, decorations, foods, and/or handmade things that make your home extra special for Christmas!
{Feel free to learn more about A Homemade Christmas here.}

A few years ago for Christmas, Breezy and I received jewelry making supplies from our dear parents. Now and then we get the supplies out to create a pair of earrings or something similar.

Above are a few earrings that I made this past week after purchasing extra beads and findings.

Making jewelry can be less expensive than buying jewelry. Aside from the pliers, all that is needed are the “ear wires”, head pins, and charms or beads.

Earrings are lovely gifts that can add an extra touch to any lady’s attire!

Are you having A Homemade Christmas? Yes? Then I invite you to join me here by adding your link to your post about homemade gift(s), decorations, foods, and/or handmade things that make your home extra special for Christmas!

To join us, just sign Mr. Linky below (make sure you use the direct post link). You can get the codes and instructions for adding an A Homemade Christmas icons to your blog by clicking here. The next A Homemade Christmas events will be December 15th and December 29th! This Linky will be open for two weeks, until the next AHC event begins.

I hope you’ll join us while we learn, inspire, and encourage one another as we prepare to celebrate (though we celebrate all year round) the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ!

    Beautiful Emily! :D I don’t seem to have that talent for making jewelery, but I am the beneficiary of many lovely pieces made by my sister. :) I love the pairs you have made! Very stylish! :D and they look like they could cost a lot, even though it didn’t and it probably didn’t take you too long to make them! ;D Hehe! Gotta love projects that don’t take long to make but look like they did. ;)

    Blessings to you!

    Those are gorgeous! :) Have you ever considered a home business selling jewelry? I know I’d make a purchase! :)

    Emily Rose, the are positively gorgeous! How long about does it take you to make each pair?

  10. Annie on Dec 1, 2009 said:

    Oh, Emily! :) You make me wish I had my ears pierced…those earrings are BEAUTIFUL!! You should start a jewelry business and sell necklaces/bracelets/rings as well. :)
    P.S. Recently I made a pair of knitted fingerless gloves and they turned out so cute! They are a great Christmas gift idea…thanks!

    Those are beautiful! They’d make great stocking stuffers too.

    I love your earrings, they’re gorgeous – and they make me wish that I liked wearing dangly earrings! I can’t stand it, I’m so afraid some little kid will come along and pull at them!
    I especially love the set with the map on it.

  13. Miss Jen on Dec 2, 2009 said:

    I just love the blue ones… *sigh*

    Love~ Miss Jen

    Miss Emily Rose,
    The earings you made are lovely!
    I have made jewelry for Christmas presents before, and everybody that I gifted them to absolutely loved them. Thank you for the idea!

    The earrings look so beautiful!

  17. Dawn on Dec 5, 2009 said:

    What wonderful encouragement to crate for Christmas! Every year I say I’m going to make everyone a little something, and every year I run out of time. This year I’m quite determined, and this is the little push I need! I’ve finished one project and am off to plan more.

  18. Bridgett on Dec 5, 2009 said:

    Your earrings are beautiful!! Thanks for hosting this! It’s a lot of fun to see what others do just for fun & ideas!

    I’m a little late with this but I had to do it anyway:). The earrings are so lovely! Now, I’m off to check out all the other crafty geniuses!

    I love your site! I just posted for a home-made Christmas. It’s a tutorial on how to make a mini duct tape tote. It probably doesn’t fit the same same style as all the other gifts, but it is a fun home-made project that your friends will love. I also crochet doll clothes (though i haven’t made any tutorials). Once again thanks for the great blog!

    God Bless,

    Lovely earrings! I completely agree that making jewelry is much cheaper than buying it. I have a lot of jewelry-making supplies but I bought a whole set of specialty items to make a specific pair. I calculated the cost of my materials (how many cents per item) and it came out to just seventy-five cents per pair. Per pair! I was delighted to find I was giving someone something handmade and lovely and being quite frugal at the same time.

    Hi, I’ve been making earrings on and off for 40 years; although I enjoy buying earrings they are expensive and inevitably I lose one. I prefer putting my own ideas and taste into what I make. Great website!
