Totes, clutches, and accessories for the babes in your life who love a little flair.

Prepare to be tempted by many DIY totes, clutches, and baubles. We know you've got a gal in your life that loves colorful, bold, unique accessories (confession: it's okay if that friend is *you*), so gift her a custom item she'll be proud to show off.

If you're feeling particularly bold, channel your inner metalworker with our Jewelry Making and Metalworking Class. It's a great way to learn how to forge and design jewelry from scratch. And if you're not quite ready for that, we've got tips, tricks, and hacks fit for true DIY beginners.

You can also learn to make statement necklaces using basic jewelry materials and rope in our Knotted Jewelry Workshop, taught by the mother-daughter duo behind Knotty Gal.
