Cable Braided Necklace

Cable Braided Necklace
Yesterday, I have been deep in thought while sizing a pattern, deadlines all looming and sooo much to do before the year's end. I have thought to share a great little technique with you. Something last minute that you can make for either a gift of for yourself! It's been cool, so having that tiny bit of precious cashmere caressing your neck certainly felt cosy. So here is what you would need: Time: 1.5-2hr (excluding drying time). 15-20 grams of Fingering or Sport weight yarn. Make sure to choose something delectable, tiny bit of cashmere, royal alpaca, merino or qiviut. Needle: US 4 (3.5 mm) Crochet hook C or D. Gauge: 6 sts and 7-8 rows in 1" over Stockinette stitch swatch Cabled Braids are made up by knitting 2 strips. 1st strip: Using needle and yarn CO 9 sts. 2nd strip: Using needle and yarn CO 9 sts. On next row (RS): K4, yo, k2tog, k3. If you wish to make strips longer - repeat the sequence from *. Wash your strips, make sure to use wool wash to help and fluff those fibers.

Memory Wire Tube DIY Bracelet Today’s project is a fun and easy bangle suitable for jewelry beginners. It uses memory wire, so there are no clasps or findings to worry about. All you need to think about is what kinds of fabulous beads you want to use! I am loving turquoise this season, so I used a mix of turquoise beads and tube beads to create this look. I’ll show you how I made mine, but keep in mind that memory wire bracelets are very versatile – giving you the chance to create any look you love! La Belle Helene: Sunburst I've been experimenting recently with lots of different ways to make strong enough 3D crochet vessels and I thought I'd give the most obvious method - wire - a try this time. I found some wires too inflexible and difficult to mould as well as being too skinny in diameter once crocheted, so I decided to try wire with its plastic coating still on - like the ones you find in electric cables. In the UK that will be brown and blue colours:) (the earth wire doesn't have a plastic coating inside the big grey tubing which I stripped off, just the bare copper - which is very nice in its own right and I will keep for later!)

DIY Tutorial: Chandelier Crystal Earrings I have A LOT of jewelry supplies lying around. Since I am trying to save money, I'm going to go ahead and use the things I already have to do tutorials with. Jewelry tutorials are the easiest for me to make since I have been making jewelry for almost 10 years now. Plus, it's pretty AND you get to wear it while having the satisfaction of knowing you made it yourself (which is especially awesome when you get compliments on it!). I wanted to do a pair of chandeliers for this post for a few reasons.
