We’re nuts for nuts. Is there a more versatile and inexpensive DIY component than a hex nut from the hardware store? You can imagine our excitement when we first discovered Philip Crangi’s Giles & Brother Hex Collection . Honestly, nuts braided into jewelry is WTF genius!
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.
Já faz um tempinho que detectamos uma onda de pulseiras de corrente decoradas com trabalhos em crochê e linhas nas lojas mais bacanas de acessórios. O trabalho é supervalorizado porque muitas vezes o material da pulseira é de ouro, e o trabalho artesanal também tem o seu valor. Quem virou febre da modinha lá fora e vende suas peças no Net-a-Porter é o designer Aurélie Bidermann . As joias são feitas com materiais nobres, e as correntes são todas de ouro 18k. Vale a pena o investimento, mas se você não pode arcar com o precinho, encontramos um site que ensina a fazer o passo a passo da pulseira sensação. Separe a sua tesoura, linha de bordar trançada e grampos de cabelo.
A friend gave me this flower ring and necklace, when she handed them to me I thought they were porcelain–there’s a very vintage feel to them. From a distance you really can’t tell that they’re made out of rick rack! Yes, rick rack! She shared how to make them with me, and now I’m sharing with all of you readers! The wow of the rosette comes from a few simple steps! She found this tutorial, in Portuguese I believe .
i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach... as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning... *sigh* yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home.
Thanks to the wonderfully crafty team over at Etsy - we can now make our very own sailor's knot bracelets! I've always wanted to know how to do this- but as it was, my Mom signed me up for Brownies rather than Boy Scouts- thus I honed in on sewing patches rather than tying knots. But now with this easy tutorial, you too can be a master-knotter. Imagine the possiblilities! Hairbands, scarves, earrings- your creativity is the limit! 3.5 yards of twine 14 ounce can for a smaller bracelet or a 20 ounce can for a larger bracelet.
