Noeud marin au poignet

Noeud marin au poignet
31 juillet 2011 Crédit photo : Mimnor / Linéa Chic Il y a quelques temps, j’ai découvert le bracelet Noeud tressé de Marie Séguy sur le blog de Mimnor. Je l’avais trouvé vraiment très joli mais j’avais beaucoup beaucoup moins apprécié le prix. Il n’ai pas très compliqué à faire, il faut juste bien faire attention à ne pas passer au-dessus au lieu d’en-dessous et vice versa.

DIY Marbled Glassware When graphic designer and artist Joanna Bean Martin shared with us her technique for marbling the bottoms of glassware with nail polish, we couldn’t wait to try it ourselves. Who knew it would be such an easy way to add color and pattern to your next tablescape or party? Remember, the brighter and bolder colors you use, the more the glasses will radiate and glow. Have fun! You’ll need:flat bottomed glasswarevariety of colorful nail polishclear nail polisha disposable plastic containernail polish removerpainters tapetoothpicks Mask off the bottom of the glass with painters tape. Fill a disposable, plastic container with water. Layer the colors one on top of the other. Submerge the bottom of the glass into the polish.

Your glowing glasses are finished! Bottoms up!

Where is that perfect piece of storage for necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets so they could all live happily and neatly in a single place?!

DIY Wrap Bracelet You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists. The more, the better. In fact . . . the most, the best! With that being said, we’ll show you how to master a version of the ever so popular wrap bracelet. It’s so simple and addicting, you’ll soon be churning out these wristlets with your eyes closed. You’ll need (for a double wrapped bracelet) :* Lengths will vary depending on the size of your wrist (see comments for suggestions). Fold the length of leather cording in half to form a loop. Place the ball chain along the leather cording with the end of the chain meeting the end of the wrap. Continue wrapping while checking it for fit around the wrist. When you have reached the end of the ball chain wrap the linen cording around the leather strands 2-3 more times. Thread the hex nut through the strands and tie a second knot. Trim with scissors and your wrap bracelet is finished!! The materials are listed for a double wrap bracelet. It’s a party!

Bracelet tubes dorés 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. For single, adjustable gold tube bracelets, you’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into 2 12 inch pieces. And now, all that’s left is the sliding closure! . . . and bring the top cord under both the bottom and middle overlapping strands through the loop, into a knot. Repeat the same step on the right side. Continue to make 5-6 more knots. To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 2-3 knots along the backside. Trim away any excess cord. Thread two gold spacer beads onto each cord and tie the tips into a knot. Layer and enjoy.

Un saladier sympa! - La Galette Un saladier sympa! Par mat, dans la crêpière -# 359 - Fil RSS vu sur ce blog: La méthode pour transformer un disque vinyle en saladier est simple: Shéma du procesus raconté par la suite. Ingrédients: * Un disque vinyle (dans notre essai, nous avons utilisé un album de Bobby Mcferrin parceque celui de Technotronic n’a pas marché, évidemment). Scoubidou/rondelles The moment we saw Phillip Lim‘s Box Braid Collar Necklace, we were immediately overcome with a wave of nostalgia. Our memories of a neon, plastic box braid lanyard was suddenly transformed into a sophisticated leather jewelry component. Honestly, brilliant! Inspired by our fondness of Lim’s necklace and our love of utilizing hardware, we made our own interpretation of a box braid necklace. And in case you forgot how to make your favorite childhood summertime craft, take a trip down memory lane with us! Start by cutting the suede in 4 three-yard pieces. Repeat the box braid until you are ready to add washers to the necklace. Once the necklace is finished, trim the ends. Wear it as a necklace, wrap bracelet or even a headband!
