Madlenart Report

I’m a strong believer that jewelry is for everyone. Of course, if you don’t love wearing it due to comfort reasons, don’t let me pressure you. But I personally think jewelry looks lovely on every single person. Earrings, rings, necklaces, you name it. We can all rock them, regardless of our gender. I started wearing many rings when I was in high school because I was a bit insecure about my hands (I know, it sounds so silly), but when my fingers are filled with rings, I love the way my hands look. I get so many compliments on my rings, and they each tell a story, as they’re from all over the world.

On that note, jewelry is a great gift and/or souvenir. My partner has bought me rings before, I’ve bought him one, my mother has bought me several rings, and I’ve bought some for my friends. A piece of jewelry can hold so much sentimental value when it’s from a loved one, and it will always hold a special place in the owner’s heart. Not to mention the fact that many of us even choose to signify to the world whether we are married or not by choosing to wear a ring on one particular finger.

Jewelry does not always need to have strong sentimental value though. Sometimes, it can just be pretty! I don’t love wearing makeup, and I don’t have a particularly fancy wardrobe. But if I want to feel my best, I will deck myself out with my best jewelry. I’m a simple woman, and I’m attracted to shiny things. A gorgeous ring or sparkly earrings will grab my attention immediately, and I love that jewelry is always a great topic of conversation. If I notice someone else has a particularly nice ring or necklace on, I’ll compliment them on it and ask where it came from. It might have a lovely story behind it; the person wearing it may have even created it themself. No matter where it came from, most people are happy to share about their pieces.

If you’re still unsure what to get a loved one for Christmas or they have a birthday quickly approaching, don’t count out jewelry. Of course, there are a few things you’ll want to know ahead of time, like whether they’re a gold or silver person, whether or not they have their ears pierced, their ring size, etc. But for the most part, jewelry is a safe gift. It comes from the heart, it doesn’t take up much space, and it’s a lovely reminder of your friendship.

If this list is inspiring you to start working with your hands and craft some of your own jewelry, I’ve gathered some tips from artist Kristin Arzt at The Crucible art school in California to help you on your journey. First, Kristin notes that it’s important to determine what type of jewelry you’d like to make: beaded, wire, silver or gold, glass fused, metal clay, etc. Look for inspiration online or in jewelry shops and find what really speaks to you personally. If you’re going to be dedicating countless hours creating something, it’s important that you pick something you love, so you can enjoy the process.

One of the first steps in creating your own jewelry is designing the piece. “If you are unsure where to begin, start designing your piece with a simple sketch on paper,” Kristin notes. “Consider different shapes, colors, and materials that inspire you. You can work from scratch or draw inspiration from a vintage piece of jewelry. This sketch will help you determine what types of materials and tools you will need to turn your drawing into reality. As you design your piece, label each part of the design with the materials you need to acquire.”

Once you know what design you’ll be creating, it’s important to gather all of the necessary tools and materials needed to make your vision a reality. “The most accessible type of jewelry that you can make at home is wire-wrapped jewelry,” Kristin notes. “It requires just a few simple tools and does not require a kiln. Working with precious metals to create soldered jewelry will require a torch and soldering equipment. If you have access to more advanced equipment and are interested in fused glass jewelry or metal clay jewelry, you will need a kiln. If casting precious metals is required for your project, you will need access to a centrifugal casting machine.”

Another important necessity for making your own jewelry is having a nice workspace. “Set up a clean table space in an area with lots of light,” Kristin notes. “Jewelry making tends to happen on a much smaller scale, so it is a good idea to have plenty of light and even a magnifying glass if necessary. Your workbench should be solid so that when you hammer, stamp, and work your jewelry, it doesn’t wobble.” 

“A comfortable seat is critical as a jeweler because you may end up sitting in it for hours at a time. Consider a chair that supports your back and neck,” Kristin added. “Set up your seat so that you are eye level with your bench peg, so you don’t find yourself hunching over your work. If you plan on sanding, soldering, or polishing, make sure you have plenty of ventilation, as well as safety goggles, a mask, and proper fire safety equipment.”

Jewelry has been around for centuries, so if you’re wondering if you should splurge on that piece you’ve been eyeing for months, go for it. It’s certainly not going out of style any time soon. The earliest types of jewelry were necklaces made of bones, dating back to about 25,000 years ago in Monaco. There was even early stone jewelry in Iran and the Mediterranean between 3000 and 400 BC. And even back then, jewelry was worn for more than just aesthetics.

“Many stone amulets featured simple carvings with symbols like flowers and stars and served as tributes to gods,” Kristin explains. “Ancient Egyptians decorated their tombs and mummies with talismans, featuring ornate gems and stone-carved symbols. As far back as 1200 B.C, Greeks wore jewelry to reflect prosperity and wealth, made of gold and gemstones, and often as an offering to gods. The Romans believed in magic and myth and had a deep respect for the symbolism of gemstones. They resourcefully also melted down gold coins to cast into jewelry.”

This is a phenomenal ring, I'm awestruck and in love. Opals would have to be my favorite stones. There's so much variety and range from white with dashes of sparks spread out to black stones fireworks bursting and rivers of flames flowing through them, with every imaginable variation between. So much beauty.
