September 2011

I spotted these fusion beads and they brought back tons of memories from when I was a kid. I used to make all kinds of little iron designs with them. I bought them not having a clue what I was going to do with them. I tend to buy things hoping an idea will just pop in my head. This method of buying things and them not having a purpose is causing my craft cupboard (aka kitchen cupboard) to quickly fill up. Half the time my little ideas are major flops but sometimes they actually turn out. What you will need: A package of fusion beads. Lay out your fusion beads face up and form them into the shape of a long cuff.

Place the ironing paper on top of your beads. Once you have done the first side, flip it over and place another piece of iron paper on top and do the same thing. Spray paint it. This is the back side of the cuff. Crystal Ring. Keepsake Pendant. Check Ball Earrings. Boat People's vintage and DIY fashion blog - your daily source of OMG. This past weekend, I got lucky: I found, at my house, a forgotten bag of semi-precious polished stones and some metal wire. How convenient, and perfect to create stone pendants I thought! Making them required a bit of dexterity but besides that it’s a quick, easy and fun DIY. Plus, it leaves lots of room for creativity and each piece is guaranteed to be unique. Follow the six quick steps below to create your own! What you need: Stones (can be any kind; polished, raw, precious etc. click here for more info about rocks and minerals)Artistic wire (copper wire or gauge wire)PliersCutters Start by placing your stone in the middle of your wire so you can wrap it around the stone.

Then twist your wire perpendicularly so you can wrap the rest of the stone. Twist the wires until you’ve reached the desired length and then make a hoop shape with it. Now that you’ve got a hoop shape, use the extra wire to solidify the hoop by wrapping each of the wires once or twice around it. Cut the extra wires. Passions for Fashion.

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!
