DIY Utility Rope Necklace

DIY Utility Rope Necklace
A couple summers ago, we stocked up on brass washers to make friendship necklaces. A year later, hex nuts became short in supply thanks to the hex nut bracelet. Today we’re all about compression sleeves, which are conventionally used in plumbing but also make for the perfect component for these statement necklaces. Striking, colorful, and fun, this tutorial won’t be able to keep you too far away from your local hardware store! You’ll need: Start by cutting the utility rope into 8 32 inch pieces. Keeping the compression sleeves together keep the ropes evenly bound and make sliding them on easier. Decide which sections to wrap and start at the center of the necklace. Continue to wrap the entire section. Allow to dry before trimming any excess cord. When all the sections have been wrapped, trim end ends. Using pliers, attach a larger jump ring to one end and a clasp to the other. And that’s it, your necklace is finished! Make a couple more and layer them on top of each other.

The Forge So of course after yesterday's post, things quickly turned around today and Logan decided to be a true toddler again... Oh well, the peace couldn't last forever and I was kind of jinxing it anyway by writing about it, wasn't I? On a different note, I finally found a pair of pants at Target that actually fit me nicely. So far I've never had real luck with their pants so I couldn't resist getting these dark blue ones from Mossimo. It's been so warm and kind of humid here this week that I actually turned the a/c on last night. I know it's way to early for those kinds of shenanigans but as much as I hate the cold and snow, I also have the hardest time going to sleep when it's hot and humid in the house. Now that's enough weather talk for one day. Moving on to this... The couple of things that I just ordered from my wonderful new sponsor Brika, which you may have noticed looking pretty in the sidebar up there.

Marsha Golemac Paper installations by Marsha Golemac Illustrated paint cans by Marsha Golemac Paper boxes by Marsha Golemac Melbourne paper artist and designer Marsha Golemac came to our attention in two simultaneous ways. Firstly, we spotted her crafting up a storm at Megan Morton’s School in Sydney, and so inevitably we decided some instagram stalking was in order! Turns out Marsha is a stationery and homewares product developer by trade, having spent many years working with the talented peeps at kikki.K, before going freelance late last year. We were pretty excited when we found out Marsha was based locally (in Collingwood), so we decided to pay her a little visit and learn a little more about her work! Marsha Golemac in her Collingwood home studio. Tell us a little about your background – what did you study and what did you do career wise before going freelance in the events and interiors world? Yes, that was another thing, I had too many interests and I wanted to give them all a go.
