Do you have good fashion? I hope you want to know how to make your own jewelry. The materials you need are a lanyard, plastic beads and jewels, and lots of focus and patience. Sometimes I walk on the beach and find some shells or beach glass that I use for my creations. I like to polish up my finds before threading them on the lanyard. Here is a helpful hint: If you are beading and let go of the lanyard, lots of beads will fall on the floor. Pick them up so someone doesn’t slip on them.

Here is the best way to make jewelry such as necklaces, bracelets and rings: Start by adding a knot at the end of the lanyard before beginning to put on your beads. You can add the beads in any way to make a design you like. When you are done, add a knot at the other end. Now, ask a grown up to gently tie the jewelry on you, and you might need a grown-up to help make the hole punch for the shells.

I hope you have fun following these steps to make your jewelry.
