Jewelries are made to shine so they can attract attentions to it and yourself. They are made in the form of simple rings and bracelets to extravagant earrings and big chain necklaces with your name embedded in gold plates. What turn away most people from owning these jewelries are the expensive price tags.

To compensate for that, why not make your own costume designer jewelry. Don’t be satisfied with simple string chain with plastic “diamonds”. When costume designer jewelry is done properly, they can look as astonishing as their real counterpart and no one could tell the difference just by looking at it.

Also when you make your own costume designer jewelry, not only it will be cheaper to do it but you are in charge of the design and materials used. There is no rule on what materials can be used or not. The frame can be made from metal or silver while the decorations as made out of seashells, ceramic, faux pearl, colored enamel or glass. These are just a few sample materials you can use.

Necklace and brooches can be made with animal designs. For earrings and bracelets, you can pick to decorate them with floral designs. Just need to open your eye and look around you for a nature inspiration or talk a walk in the park.

Circle and squares looks simple alone but combined and they will look unique and striking. Move them around so they would look symmetrical for your earrings. Round bracelet are normal, go out of the way and turn them into oval or square instead. You can even pass it off as part of a modern art.

You can open up a celebrities magazine and look at the Hip Hop singers with big rings with big gold chain hanging around their neck. These accessories tend to be over flashy but it is their intention to look like that.
