Fortunately, teenage girls have so many interests, hobbies, and ideas that finding gift ideas is generally pretty easy. But if your teenager is anything like mine, she is picky and has strong opinions. You might need a little help coming up with a gift idea that really hits the mark.

My inspiration includes my name, can be only my surname, unique, very different, should emphasis on art. Thank You! Enjoyed browsing over you brass merchandise, not too many places to just stare at this type of metal. One thing I really like about adding the side beads with a large center bead is that it looks like an evil eye. I think that look could probably be played up a little more in the design with your choice of beads. I just got mine removed using laser treatment (same as removing a tattoo) not painful and only cost 15$ per piercing and is now completely gone!! I had no idea you could make jewelry with nail polish! What a cool idea. I will share this hub with my nieces, that always look for craft ideas. I love the purple one on top. So beautiful.

The general rule of thumb with retail sales is to triple your expenses to find your selling price. This means that, if you’ve made that beautiful little pink quartz bracelet with a base cost of $1.18, you should sell it for $3.54 (or round it to $3.50) in a retail situation. However, you’ll need to think about how and where you’re going to sell before you put a price tag on your work. Buy a cheap eyepiece and check your items to see if there is a gold or silver mark on it. For gold, you will normally see 10K, 14K,18K or 22K.

My jeweller has quoted me for the same stone with a ‘very good’ cut at $5,500. Please remember this is an example and that they can cater for smaller budgets.

I made 3, one for the young woman who likes comfort and simplicity, one for the classy and feminine one, and one for the fashionista. I got all the bags and the jewelry from I think that these looks show both how to sparkle and shine in a crowd and, also, how to pair vintage and contemporary pices(two of the challenges they proposed).
