Locket Art {Tutorial} The other day I needed something pretty to match my brand new outfit and I couldn’t find anything that really matched. Of course, that meant I needed to make something! Am I the only one that thinks this way? I don’t think so. Believe! I have the blessing to be part of a great organization inside of the church I belong to; called Young Women. The theme for the girls {age 12 to 17} this year is “believe”. I’ve been thinking a lot during the last six months about such a simple word and what it means to me… However it was during this weekend that I found myself thinking more deeply about it while working on these little necklaces that I was making for our girls…

Etched Glasses for Father's Day By Jennifer Perkins Like most red blooded men out there, my husband enjoys an ice cold beer from time to time. Last year was his first Father’s Day so I whipped up a custom 6 pack of beer for him. This year I decided to continue with the beer theme (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it), but upgraded things a bit.

If you’ve always wondered if you could make resin jewelry in the comfort of your home, the answer is yes.

DIY Gold Tube Bracelets I have very vivid memories of walking into a bead store for the first time, almost 15 years ago, and being overwhelmed by the million and ten ideas that filled my mind. I was immediately hooked on the concept of transforming simple and unexpected elements into something beautiful and wearable. That moment was the catalyst for my eventual path into jewelry design and craft – my higher calling, if you will. Today’s tutorial takes me back to my first foray into jewelry making, where I’ll show you how to make two delightful bracelets using the same basic component. Get inspired and have fun! Little Wishes Well, we are dusting off our obligatory black armband over in Beyond Beyond land for one of our most favourite shops ever – Early Bright (mega sad face) they have been the purveyors of some delicious and inspirational bling that is more art than jewellery. And we just want to share one of the most beautiful pieces every a wish in a jar. We used to shake dandelion bushes when we were little in the vain belief that we would get a Barbie dream house, Michael Jackson tickets, the ability to breakdance overnight (although we never progressed beyond being able to do backspins), millionaire moolah, or our favourite wish was that we had been dropped off at the wrong house (sorry parental units) and we were really the offspring of some family with the financial clout of Daddy Warbucks and the Rothschild’s combined.

the red kitchen: The Leather Cuff tutorial Hello and welcome all you boy-lovers! While I don't have any little boys of my own to play with yet, I do have a husband and brothers and brothers-in-law to make things for.
