DIY- Anthropologie "Perched Harmonies" Necklace

DIY- Anthropologie "Perched Harmonies" Necklace
Ready for another tutorial? What a pretty necklace. Not a pretty price! Make your own $68-looking Anthropologie designer necklace at home for barely no money at all. All that are needed are some beads, wire, and wire-working skills (don't worry, nothing too complicated here!). It's surprisingly quick to make, took me less than an hour. Get out your pliers; let's make some jewelry! Step 1: Gather materials. I used just plain glass rounds, as the Anthropologie necklace uses faceted gemstone beads. Step 2: Make the wire pendant. Time to hammer. When it looks slightly flatter, hammer the ends extra hard to sort of "push" the wire outwards, flattening it a lot. Step 3: Make the holes. Step 4: Add your beads to the pendant. If you don't care about it looking the exact same or don't have the exact colors of the beads (some of my colors were slightly different hues), then just go with what you want. Start wrapping the beads onto the pendant. You are finished!

How to bake artisan bread in a barbecue We don’t have an oven in our tiny house. I complained about it for years and researched RV ovens that never seemed like they would work very well. Finally, I just decided to try baking in our barbecue. It’s a pretty nice propane one that we got as a wedding present, but it’s not too fancy. I tried it, and miraculously, it worked. In the interest of full disclosure, I don’t have much experience baking bread in a regular oven, so this is what I know best.

DIY Geometric Diamond Necklace Hi there, sorry for the missed post yesterday! It's been a long day of studying for exams. Anyway, today I'd like to share a little DIY project I made over the weekend. I really love the geometric trend going on, and it inspired me to make this geometric diamond necklace. It was super easy and fun to do, cost almost nothing and has already brought me compliments. I hope you'll enjoy it! Bathroom Art On A $10 Budget This bathroom makeover is on an extremely small budget, which means I'm going to need extremely small budget art.

Yep, let's call it what it is...cheap, not just inexpensive, cheap.

Beaded Wrap Bracelet Video Tutorial This is the single wrap bracelet I made while filming the wrap bracelet tutorial. It has such a different look to it than the one I made this past weekend. It is amazing the different look and style you can create with the same basic pattern just by changing length of the bracelet and the type and size of the bead! Bohemian Chic Hair Pin Yet another DIY! Summer is a time to create and when summer hits I definitely put down my knitting needles a bit more…THE HEAT! It is hard to knit with even the softest wool fiber when it is close to the triple digits outside. So here is a fun tutorial for those of you who are taking a breather from knitting. This clip was designed using a button off one of my old sweaters and some feathers I already had on hand (from all the feather extensions I have been putting in).

Frieda and Nellie Friendship Ring These are my kind of friendship bracelets; they've got major sparkle! I love how Frieda and Nellie incorporate gems into their designs, which adds another dimension to these bracelets; it instantly makes them more elegant! I knew I could make a tutorial for these. However, I didn't want to spend hours knotting to make a bracelet, so I made a ring! What's great about making rings is that they come together way quicker than a bracelet, which means you have time to make more!

Lovely Wire Knot Ring Tutorial You can make this lovely ring (or a version of this design) yourself, using just some basic tools, wire and a lip balm! Yes, in this tutorial I am going to demonstrate that just basic beginner tools and a wire from Michael’s can go a long way! Wouldn’t this ring make a great present?? For the purpose of this tutorial I am going to be using the very basic, cheap tools that are available almost everywhere. Instead of a ring mandrel you can just use a tube of a lip balm, like I did. I chose to make my ring from a simple gold-plated wire (20 gauge) but you could also use 18-gauge wire, twisted wire (wouldn’t that be nice?)
