I think i need to explain why i made an ear cuff tutorial at last (i know, many of you asked me to make it, and i always said no..) I've spent the last 2 months thinking about where am i and what i want as an artist.. I had to realize that i don't make new things any more.. to be honest, i think copying (yourself or other artists) is the most awful thing you can do.. it kills art! So i've decided that i'll renew myself and my art, and make this tutorial for you not only to thank you for your support, but because now i'm really forced to make something new STEAMPUNK EAR CUFF TUTORIAL by *szilviabead on deviantART

Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique.

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.
