More and more people are looking for ways to make extra money, and making your own jewelry is just one way.  Gemstone jewelry designer Lindsay Cain offers "25 easy, step-by-step projects" to try.  Not only can you sell your work, they'd also make lovely personal gifts, especially to those who like different and not run-of-the-mill wear.  You can also recycle many of your own personal treasures into new and dazzling creations.  I enjoyed reading a little history about gems and jewelry (they've been around for eons).  You will need a few tools (not as many as I thought) to get you going, and Lindsay covers what you'll need for what you want to make.  You can follow along with her detailed instructions on how to assemble your projects.  You'll use pearls, multi-colored beads, stones in all shapes and sizes, and charms to come up with your own designs.  Soon you'll be making earrings, chokers, bracelets, wine glass tags, and ankle bracelets among other ideas.  If you turn out to be good enough, you might even open your own business like Lindsay did.  Visit her website at www.femmegems.com.
