This year, I'd really like to stay on top of birthday gifts. It seems like I'm always making a last-minute run to the toy store on the way to the birthday party. Not this year.
I have been seeing a lot of bird nest jewelry around lately. They are beautiful and I love the trend so I thought I would try making my own. These turned out to be really easy to make and require just a few simple supplies. This necklace would make a lovely Mother's day gift, which just happens to be coming up this weekend! What you'll need: - Jewelry wire (I prefer using a 24 gage because it is easier to manipulate but the 20 gage can work well too with the help of some round nose pliers) - pearls or glass beads - necklace chain - jump ring and a clasp
Look at this pretty glass tile pendant! Do you think it's difficult to make? :) No! It's easy as 1-2-3!
I call it Swiss Candy Jewelry because it loosely resembles Swiss cheese and the Haribo Gummi candies they sell all over central Europe. Similar to the process used in the Sparkling and Melting Flowers , this tutorial uses the magical properties of #6 recyclable plastic. Materials: * Five #6 recyclable plastic cups * Heat source (like a well ventilated oven) * Chain or wire to use as necklace base and links * Pliers Cost: Free for me (I already had cups leftover from a party and an old junk necklace, but I imagine this could be assembled for less than $10)
Jan 12th 2010 A few months ago (okay, six), I posted a photo of an Anthropologie-inspired necklace I made on a whim. I had a few requests for a tutorial, and I know it took me FOREVER… but here it is! A few things to note:
I made this pendant as a derivative of my Shenandoah bracelet and earrings. The winding and weaving around the larger rings bring to mind the Shenandoah river, which is here in Northern Virginia in the Shenandoah Valley, which famously winds and bends back and forth. This pendant hangs from a 18 inch chain, which can be adjusted anywhere between 16-20 inches for you, just leave a note to seller when you check out.
Apr 12th 2010 I’m sure these tutorials of mine are all starting to look the same. That’s because they are. Haha, enjoy.
