DIY This Valentine’s Day With Heart Jewelry Tutorials

One thing I’ve always hated about Valentine’s Day is the pressure to buy expensive gifts. I suppose it’s the curse of the DIYer, but I always look at those pricey jewels and think, I could make something just as nice as that.

While everyone else is at the jewelry store buying expensive necklaces and rings for Valentine’s Day that will cost them six months’ salary, you can be at home with your basic jewelry tools creating masterpieces that look equally expensive and professional.

Whether you’re making a Valentine’s Day gift or just donning hearts for the sweet holiday, check out these heart-shaped jewelry tutorials that don’t require you to spend an entire paycheck.

Queen of Hearts Necklace

A variety of beads come together to make this necklace inspired by Alice in Wonderland‘s Queen of Hearts character. I like this necklace because the hearts are a bit subtle, so you could get away with wearing it any time of year.

Navajo Heart Cuff

This cuff immediately caught my attention because of its unique weave. This is another example of a heart that’s subtle, so it can be worn any time you feel like donning a heart. Maybe you can even use the weaving skills you learn here to design a cuff yourself.

Wire Crochet Volume Heart Pendant

If you’re familiar with crochet, you’ll recognize the stitches of this pendant. Create the pendant in a traditional Valentine’s Day red as shown here, or go for something a little less traditional. I’d love to make this in a royal blue or even green.
