Carry on...Carry on...: DIY Lanvin-inspired Pearl and ribbon necklace. Supplies- Satin Ribbon-I used two different sizes but you don't have to. Large rhinestone pendant Assorted sizes of pearl beads Beading thread Thin lace trim First I started by beading the pearls onto the thread. I did a graduated beading to add some interest. I beaded the pearls with the thread still attached to the spool, this way I could make sure I had enough length. Continue beading the large pearls and then begin incorporating the small pearls again working back up to the large pearls. Once your done beading, tie a knot large enough for the beads to not move around on each end.

Then I took about a yard of ribbon and laced it through the loop of the pendant. Pull both ends of the thread through the pendant loop. At this point I decided I wanted to add some lace trim to the necklace. At the opposite end of the pearls you should have the ends of the lace trim. Voila! Thoughts- -I think I'm going to sew the lace trim to the pearl beads. Enjoy! Xoxo, Amanda. Mini scalloped felt flowers. Another felt flower! These are easy and so cute. I made them by first cutting out flowers with my Go Baby! Rose of Sharon die. You could cut a flower shape out by hand easily, too. Then I started cutting a spiral shape like so… Continue til you get to the middle, ending with a little circular shape. Then starting with the outside end, glue and roll toward the inside. Continue gluing and rolling… …then at the end tuck and glue the little circular shape.

A finished little rosette! I added three to a headband, and they also look really sweet on clips! **Also, a few people asked where I got my elastic headbands-I found them at the dollar store awhile ago! **I used a plain old hot glue gun for the gluing! A beaded fabric flower necklace tutorial. Lately, I've noticed both Etsy and Anthro featuring fabric beaded necklaces. I've also noticed a lot of fabric flowers. So, I decided to combine the two and make myself this necklace. I was going for a Halloween type vibe, but I think it can pass for a post Halloween necklace too. As a matter of fact, it would be a great Christmas gift. Below is a tutorial on how to make the necklace. Supplies Necklace fabric: 2" to 3" strip by width of fabric (43").

Instructions Step 1. 1) To determine how wide the casing should be, wrap the fabric around your bead and make note of how much fabric was used. 4) Dab the fabric ends with fray check. Step 2. 1) Insert one bead at a time through the casing. 2) With matching thread, wrap and tie off the end of the right bead. 3) Insert your needle under the fabric and pull the thread through. 4) Once the needle and thread have reached the space between the 2 beads, wrap the thread around the space. Next we'll make the flowers. Good news! Enjoy! JamieP.S. Bird nest necklace} 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 Select the beads you want, string them onto your wire and arrange them as you'd like. then simply wrap the wire around the beads wrap some wire in the space between each bead (I like the look of three loops but you could just do one or two if you prefer) this is what the back looked like.

Now attach a jump ring and a clasp to the end of a necklace chain and this is what you end up with :) I love how each one is so different. Make a crocheted necklace - wise craft. After a busy week of deadlines, topped off with replacing a laptop after mine died (the night before one of those big deadlines), I had a nice relaxing morning yesterday, crocheting these sweet little necklaces.

Craft glue Seed Beads- For the light blue necklace, I used size 8 opaque butter cream luster round Japanese seed beads. Scissors 1. 2. My necklaces are both about 30" long, and through trial and error I estimated my initial crochet chain to equal about 8 chains per inch.

So, to create a necklace approximately 30" long, I rounded off the number of chain stitches I would need to 250. I wanted to add 1 bead to every 10th chain stitch. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

You’ll need: Start by separating the jump rings into two halves: 175 open and 175 closed. Thread three closed jump rings onto an open jump ring. Close the ring.

Spread the three rings apart, with the rings looking exactly as shown below. The bottom ring will be the end of the necklace and the top two rings, which are spread open over the middle ring, will be where the chain mail begins. Keeping the rings in place with your forefinger and thumb, take an open jump ring and hook it through the front side of the two rings.

Add 2 closed rings to the open ring and close. Spread the two rings apart in the same way as the first set of rings. Add 2 closed rings and close. To add an optional fourth row, lay the necklace flat and hook an open ring through first and second closed rings on the right side.

If you do not, the glue the washer to the backside of the paper you want and then after it dries, use the Exacto knife to cut out the washer and the center holes.

So after a bit of experimentation I came up with this design. It is simple to make with basic crochet stitches, and could have endless variations both in terms of the yarns and flower styles used to make it but also in the way it is worn.

Materials * Yarn – I used Rowan Glace cotton in six different colours, a total of 33 gms. I chose the cotton yarn so it could be worn in summer as well as winter and I looked for something that was fine because I wanted the flowers to be small so they wouldn’t curl up too much. I can imagine a woolly winter version, a monochrome colour scheme or a string of flowers of varying sizes.* Crochet hook suitable for your yarn – I wanted the flowers to be very dense and small so I used a 2mm hook for the flowers and 2.5mm for the stem.* Wool needle* Scissors Method Make the flowers first.
