Bracellets... And then some! :) May 28
Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
I am loving rope jewelry right now. Bright, fun, tribal, and perfect for Spring. In my opinion, Holst + Lee does it the best.
this week’s diy is inspired by the twosome bracelet from anthro, the one with flat discs. it is a super simple bracelet to make and it cost me maybe 3 to 5 dollars to make total. full on diy after le-jump.
So today I thought it would be a fun challenge to work with paperclips.
Recently I’ve been infatuated with cubed beads and have ordered a fair few over the last few weeks.
I’ve had this project on the back burner for a long time and I’m so happy to have finally finished it to show you all!
cutness is cute
The breathtaking pieces of the extremely talented and generous artist, Laura Normandin , include paper goods , granny square art , jewelry , handmade dolls , and these wonderfully charming crocheted bracelets that she has kindly agreed to teach us to make. Influenced by larger scale handicrafts that surrounded her during her youth, Laura's refined, miniature creations leave you speechless.
Taking inspiration from Swellmayde’s Tribal Wrapped Choker , I’ve made a cuff version with stiff spikes rather than freely dangling ones.
Here’s the second DIY I led with with BurdaStyle direct from the MAGIC floor. We did these bracelets on Wednesday, the final day of the show.
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. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms.
Charm friends and family with some customized craftiness!
The prettiness from Monday and yesterday continues today with a little anthro-inspired bracelet tutorial. In a word, lovely.

As you know from this and this , I just can’t stop making friendship bracelets! They look so good mixed + matched, piled high… adding the perfect, summery pop of color to whatever it is that you’re wearing. Today’s bracelet is a bit more blingy than the others I’ve made so far… and if you’d like, you could make it the more conventional way (using a clasp + jump ring vs. string…) or even make a necklace!

If you grew up in the 80's, like I did, you're probably already familiar with the awesomeness that is Shrinky Dinks ...but did you know that you can still buy Shrinky Dinks? Yep, they're still out there - in craft stores, hobby shops, and even on Amazon .
