Do It Yourself Jewelry Catalog


From the late 1940’s through the 1970’s there were jewelry companies who supplied the material and kits so people could make their own jewelry. These companies encouraged women, in particular, to make the jewelry and then sell it to family and friends. Samantha, of “Crown Jewels @ RubyLane”, has kindly allowed us to feature her photos of this Hobbycraft Supply Service catalog on RCJ. You will notice some designs in the catalog were based on popular designs from mainline costume jewelry companies. The company was located at 208 N. Wells St., Chicago 6, Ill.


Please contact CJCI at [email protected] (not .com) if you have more information on this company, or if you have old jewelry catalogs or other jewelry paper items you would like to share on our site.
