DIY: Neon Necklace Hi Glitter Girls! It’s Grace, from Stripes & Sequins here to bring you another fun (and incredibly easy) DIY project. The inspiration Is it just me or has this Adia Kabur necklace been absolutely everywhere? At $144, it’s a bit pricey. So, when asked if I could DIY it, I was up for the challenge. You only need two things for this DIY: 1.5 yards of metallic resin chain* and a can of neon pink spray paint. Split your chain into two pieces. Let dry overnight. Carefully rejoin the pink chain to the silver chain, being sure that the chain does not twist. And you are finished! *I had an incredibly tough time sourcing the resin chain.

Drilled Natural Stone Jewelry Tutorial Guest post tutorial by Jenny Hoople of Authentic Arts. Want to learn how to drill holes in beach stones? Well, I’ve got good news for you: it’s pretty easy and I’d love to tell you how it’s done. I’ve been making this natural stone jewelry for several months with pre-drilled pebbles that I purchased from fellow Etsy artisans. Choosing the Right Stone for Drilling Almost any stone that you find CAN be drilled, but I really recommend starting with softer sedimentary rocks (sandstone, mudstone, limestone, etc). Equipment You Need to Drill Your Own Beach Stones 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Lets Start Drilling! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The only way that I alter these unique stones other than drilling a hole in them is to rub them with my hands after I’ve just put on some unscented Eucerin lotion (after the stones are dry, of course!). Now get out there and start making some fabulous beach stone creations! Thank you so much Jenny for sharing your project!
DIY — bracelet made from braided beads | Simply Allis I came across this tutorial from ECAB that demonstrates how to make a braided bead necklace and I knew instantly that was going to be my next project. I have modified the instructions a bit to make a braided bead bracelet. I will show you pictures from my bracelet making process and give brief instructions. Please click the link above to go on over to ECAB for the full tutorial. It is wonderful. These are my supplies. First I strung about 4″ of beads on to my thread. Next I chose to go ahead and cut 2 pieces of chain a little longer than I though I would actually need and attached a jumpring. Make sure all your bead tips are closed around the knot. A closer look. Next, braid the beads. Secure the bead tips at the end of the braid to the other jumpring and chain from earlier. Cut the chain to size then attach a clasp and you are all done! Now go find a new outfit to go with your awesome bracelet. to Pinterest Like this: Like Loading...
