Jewelry-Making Craft Night

This artistic event is for the ladies in your community. It allows them to come together and have a jewelry making craft night!

This event is likely to be fun to those who have a passion for fashion, crafts, and exploring their creative side. It will also serve as a therapeutic process and allow residents to take a break from their stressful daily routines.

For this event, consider finding an instructor who can help your residents make stunning handmade jewelry for themselves or their loved ones. You could look up some local craft or jewelry designers to facilitate the event.

You can also make stunning pieces of jewelry using different shapes and designs of resins! Add glue, glitter, and glittery nail polish. Top it all off with a coat of clear nail polish.

Residents can get creative with their resin jewelry designs by using stamps, feathers, and other craft supplies. Here is a good tutorial to help the participants get creative with resin designs.

***TIP*** Making jewelry from scratch can be time consuming, so consider dividing some of these activities over a course of a few different sessions.

A woven jewelry making project may look daunting to some. We suggest having multiple copies of the step-by-step instructions for the project ready. This will help residents easily make their own woven items.

The best part is they will learn and have fun along the way!
