Visit GeltDesigns for a list of free jewelry-making and craft tutorials. Each day for this year, my daughter and I challenged our selves to create a new piece of jewelry made from found objects. The goals: (1) use up crafting supplies and things we have around our house and buy no more (or as little as possible) for a year; (2) create a new piece of jewelry everyday; and (3) publish a tutorial on how we made each piece in our blog New Jewelry a Day. Join us on our adventure.
