Hot Pink Noel Pendant
Learn to make this glass tile pendant and you can make any style Christmas jewelry you’d like. This project uses Mod Podge, one of my absolute favorite craft supplies. If you already have enough pendants, hang it from the tree! These can do double duty as Christmas tree ornaments!

Snow Shoe Sparklers
Are you at pro at forming wire on a mandrel? Or maybe you just need some extra practice? Either way, you’ll sparkle and shine all night long when you wear these earrings. The design is inspired by antique snow shoes designed by Native Americans. These, of course, are much easier to make!

Oh Christmas Tree Ring
Hello, bold jewelry! This ring will not go unnoticed, even in a crowded room. Designer VickiRowe upcycled a Christmas brooch, pairing it with silver wire to make it into a ring. Genius! Give this a try if you have extra brooches hanging around. It’s a great way to upcycle even the broken ones!
