So I was looking through my vintage craft book collection and ran across a 1970 Pack O’ Fun magazine. This magazine specializes in children’s crafts and while I have no children at home, I’m always happy to try and take a good idea and run with it. They had instructions on how to take a simple popsicle stick and turn it into a bracelet . Well, I’m certainly on board for that. The thought of being able to make wood pliable put all kinds of ideas in my head. But we’ll start with the project at hand which happened to be bracelets.
I’m Kate from Cheap Crafty Mama and I’m so excited to be here to show you how to make this super cool Murano Glass Bead and Freshwater Pearl “Love” Necklace– and give you the chance to WIN ONE! Here’s how I made this CUTE ‘Love’ Necklace… Here’s What You’ll Need… thick silver (or silver-coated) wire thin silver (or silver-coated) wire silver chain- cut into 8″ and 6″ sections 2 beads (I used a murano glass bead and freshwater pearl) lobster clasp pliers (round-tipped and needle-nosed) wire clippers jewelry hammer (or a hammer with a smooth face) jewelry hammering block (or thick piece of metal to hammer on) To get started I used the round-tipped pliers to twist the thick wire to spell “love.” When I was done shaping it I hammered it with my jewelry hammer.
Last week Carly at Chic Steals posted her late summer Objects of Desire. I loved this from ASOS. Normally I wouldn’t DIY a necklace that could be purchased for less than $20, but I already had all of the materials and it only took a few minutes.
Hi! It's Monday again! WHEW!!
