Over the past few months, it has been so much fun to make unique DIY necklace, bracelet, and earring tutorials with you guys. Creating new DIY jewelry from unexpected materials like vinyl records and creating lariat necklaces from geodes has been so rewarding! After all, thinking outside the box like is the fastest way to jump start your creativity.
To kick off the new week, I thought it would be fun to compile a few projects from the archives that you may have missed.

Each of these jewelry DIY tutorials is super-simple and can be completed in less than 30 minutes. Just think- in the couple hours you would have spent shopping, you could have an entirely new collection of jewelry… for a fraction of the price.
So below you’ll find 10 simple tutorials that look absolutely beautiful when you are done. Enjoy!
DIY NECKLACE WITH GEODES
This simple DIY necklace uses the hole in the center of your average geode to create a unique lariat. Truthfully, I don’t know if I have ever worn this necklace and not received a compliment. In this tutorial HERE, it even includes which kind of geode to purchase on Amazon to easily create the tutorial as well as loads of photos to walk you through each step.
What I love most about lariat necklaces is their ability to adjust to whatever you want to wear them with. Regardless of the neckline on your shirt, you can probably wear a lariat with it. Learn to make it HERE.
