If DIY jewelry projects discourage you because you think they come out looking cheap (or like you did it yourself), fear not. This compilation features jewelry that has been upcycled from other materials and looks just as, if not more, fabulous than what you’ll find in the stores. Have fun and let us know how your pieces turn out. Happy crafting!
