SOMETHiNG MONUMENTAL: How to Make Barefoot Sandals

It ended up being a pretty simple and fun project (until I ran out of beads). 1. You'll need small plastic beads, stretch cord, a ruler, and scissors. 2. Starting with about 18 inches of string cord, string on some very small beads. Hello lovelies!

:) I had a blast making these totally cute heart rings that are absolutely perfect for Valentines, which is only two days away! Anyways, I hope you love this as much as I do! ONE: Cut a piece of wire about 5-6 inches depending on the size of your finger. Time flies by, literally, and my best friend’s wedding is taking place this weekend.

Hello lovelies, did you enjoy the leap-year day?

I have a fun tutorial for the special day, and it’s about everything I love; pearls, simple and delicate rings, quick and easy crafts. I love fresh water pearls and can’t get enough of them, but if you are not so much of a fan, you can replace the pearls to any beads you like, of course :) 1: Tiny fresh water pearl ring (approx time required: 5 mins) You’ll Need: fresh water pearls (I’m using 1mm pearls)1 crimp beadbead string cord, about 10cmpair of flat-nose pliers Instructions: 1) Thread pearls to the bead sting cord. 2) When you finish threading enough beads to go around your finger, thread a crimp bead with both ends of sting cord. 3) Pull the ends of cords so that the beads form a tight hoop. Hello everyone, This beaded toe ring tutorial will teach you how to make a wire ring!

This weekend I had the pleasure of attending my cousin’s wedding in Chicago. I am from a large, close, fun loving family. Therefore, my cousins and I all arrived in Chicago a few days before the wedding and we took the bride out on the town for an evening of fun. In the end, sisters and cousins (both present and future) gathered together to celebrate the upcoming wedding and the deep bond that we all shared. This was certainly a night to remember. Hello everyone, It is still warm outside, and that is reason enough to add some bling to your smallest digits!

So learn how to make a wire ring that is certain to make you smile. This free tutorial will show you how to make your own silver and gemstone toe or pinky ring. This ring design is easy, versatile and requires few tools. I've noticed over the last couple of years stores have opted to make the majority of their rings using stretchy cording.

I guess this is in order to appeal to a wider range of finger sizes without having to make different sized rings. It also makes it easier to gift rings if don't know a person's finger size. If there is one trend that I have fallen in love with this year it has to be midi-rings.

I went through my collection of beads, picked out the tiniest, cutest ones and made a pile of midi-rings. So simple I probably don't even need to show you how to make them. A veces los DIY más sencillos son los que más me gustan, es el caso de este anillo, no se tarda más de 2 minutos en hacer y el resultado es precioso.

Sometimes the simplest DIY are my favourites, is the case with this ring, it does not take more than 2 minutes to make and the result is gorgeous Espero que os guste! Gracias por los comentarios! You know when you really get in the zone and get carried away with making.

I could not put this project down from the moment I started making it. These rings are so easy to make I kept thinking “just one more” each time I tried to give in for the evening. The result? I am a ring addict, and because this Ring is one of my favorites I thought why not share how I make them. So this weeks DIY is my so-called “Swirl Ring”. Hope you enjoy! Let’s get started with the things you’ll need to make the ring… What you’ll need: Ok, do you have everything? 1. 2. 3. In the hope that there is going to be some lovely warm weather soon (even if it is a bit late) we thought we’d share a project from our sister blog, JewelryFromHome, which is perfect for wearing with sandals and summer dresses. These bright and colorful DIY rings are a quick make and perfect for adding a dash of summer to our fingers. The project uses shop bought gold rings and colourful jewels that can be picked up in most craft stores or recycled from old jewelry to make these beauties.

Materials – gold-plated rings (go at least one size larger than you need, we bought ours on our local highstreet), you can buy blank ring bases in most craft stores, 0.3mm gold-plated wire, a selection of costume jewels in mounts (we used a mix of jewels from our local haberdashery and from old jewellerry that we cut down to size and strong glue or a glue gun. Step 1. One of our most popular Jewelry From Home tutorials has been these colorful wire rings we made in the spring. After having a look back through our tutorials last week we decided that we needed a new ring for autumn. These bead and wire cocktail rings are just the ticket for a bit of autumn sparkle. They are the perfect project for using up odd beads and creating truly unique pieces of jewelry. Materials – 18 gauge wire, 28 gauge wire, ring mandrel, mix of beads from 1cm to 6mm Step 1.

Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. I’ve never been a ring wearer. I think it was because in my early 20’s I put weight on and (as well as everywhere else) my fingers ballooned up like sausages. Finding rings in shops was a bit of a nightmare and when I did find a ring that squeezed on it rubbed against the insides of my podgy little digits and would subsequently end up lost in the bottom of my handbag for all eternity. Now, thanks to cycling to work, the occasional run and living with a vegan man I have shed those excess pounds and my fingers are ring ready again and I have my happy claws on these Twisted, Knotted rings.

Materials: It’s taken a while, but I’ve finally been won back over by the pearl. It’s probably been about 10 years since I last wore pearl (or pearl like) beads. It’s not that I don’t like them. We just never really saw eye to eye really. It’s funny the way we can change our minds about these things. Sorry for not having published the DIY Monday lately... You can almost see the sparkle and twinkle of fairies flying around these glittery treasures!
