1/22/12 Update: Many of you have been having trouble coming across sterling silver in your local thrift stores. One place you can always find it is on ebay, but you will be paying more for the silverware. You should be able to find a sterling silver fork or spoon for about $10-$15 on ebay, so if you are having no luck and are really wanting to make a ring, I'd suggest shopping there. 4/2/12 Update: For a printable of the instructions and to see the updated photo tutorial, click here . 12/10/12 Update: To see video snippets of the tutorial, click here . ------------------------------------ Here it is ladies and gents - the highly anticipated spoon ring tutorial!

D e-tangle for a re-tangle. Take note in women’s hair history and get inspired by styles that have swept us away for centuries. Today’s modern day chick typically opts for the up do for special occasions, however that’s not the case anymore. Time to treat everyday as a special occasion! Thakoon showed intricate hairstyles with woven colored and textured materials up and down his runway. More creative and eye-catching Fall/Winter trends: bold fabric combos.
I've always loved taking everyday items and making them into something interesting. Ever since I was a little crafty kid I loved devouring books that taught me how to make little dolls from clothespins, beads from rolled up magazines, and little fairy ornaments from wire and fake flower petals. The first time I saw my friend wearing a bracelet made from a fork a few years ago, I knew I had to try it (*ahem Carly ;)). I wrote up a tutorial a while back, but I've had some questions about the directions I gave so I decided to make a proper tutorial with a video! :)
Well, we are dusting off our obligatory black armband over in Beyond Beyond land for one of our most favourite shops ever – Early Bright (mega sad face) they have been the purveyors of some delicious and inspirational bling that is more art than jewellery . And we just want to share one of the most beautiful pieces every a wish in a jar.

I’ve been itching to make myself some jewelry inspired by Aurélie Bidermann’s “Do Brasil” line. Since I don’t have 300 Euros lying around, this looked like a design I could recreate on my own. I was primed to put together a DIY Tutorial for you all when I discovered that Honestly WTF had already done the honors. I picked up the gold necklace and the two bracelet chains from an antique shop for $5 a piece, and had the embroidery thread on hand. I only needed scissors and two bobby pins to see this project through.
Triple-wrap leather bracelet with blue tigereye beads Let me begin by stating the obvious – this style of wrapped leather bracelet is EVERYWHERE this season. Everywhere! Even my athletic clothing catalogs – which only have maybe three pieces of jewelry – are featuring this style. Why?

Due to the resounding success of her last She’s Crafty , my friend Pandora from Accessory Source is back with another lovely necklace DIY tutorial that would make a fantastic christmas present for a friend or relative! She says: When it comes to jewelry, I favor big and bold pieces. And while I tend to wear mostly gold, lately I’ve become obsessed with mixing metals like silver and gunmetal (and throwing in some bling for good measure!). My multi-chain necklace has become a staple in my wardrobe because it incorporates it all. Here’s a quick 10 step tutorial on how to make your own bulky bauble.
I have another fun Target knockoff to share with you. Last time I was there I stumbled upon a great little bracelet. Here is my handy camera picture. :) I love the lace and pearls combined with the leather. So I set out to recreate it. Here’s my version . . .
