DIY Lanvin-inspired Pearl and ribbon necklace

DIY Lanvin-inspired Pearl and ribbon necklace
Supplies- Satin Ribbon-I used two different sizes but you don't have to. Large rhinestone pendant Assorted sizes of pearl beads Beading thread Thin lace trim First I started by beading the pearls onto the thread. I did a graduated beading to add some interest. I beaded the pearls with the thread still attached to the spool, this way I could make sure I had enough length. Continue beading the large pearls and then begin incorporating the small pearls again working back up to the large pearls. Once your done beading, tie a knot large enough for the beads to not move around on each end. Then I took about a yard of ribbon and laced it through the loop of the pendant. Pull both ends of the thread through the pendant loop. At this point I decided I wanted to add some lace trim to the necklace. At the opposite end of the pearls you should have the ends of the lace trim. Voila! Thoughts- -I think I'm going to sew the lace trim to the pearl beads. Enjoy! xoxo, Amanda Related:  necklace projects and tutorials

Beaded Bead Necklace Making a large bead out of small beads is the kind of thing everyone should know how to do because the concept is just so cool. If you’ve made the beaded rings we featured previously you already have all the skills you need to make this. I still had the beads I used for the brick stitch diamond pendant out and I couldn’t resist making something else with them. I love those colors. Supplies and Equipment: - seed beads – these are matte opaque size 15 in cream, seafoam, robin’s egg and black (consider swaping them for size 11 beads – they’re much easier if you’re new to beading) - thread – this is nymo in size OO - beading needle - sharp scissors - jump ring - necklace chain with clasp This is the pattern I used. This tutorial isn’t incredibly in depth because this bead is made exactly the same way these beaded rings are made. String on your first row of beads. Turn, and work back, being careful not to twist your piece. Stitch the piece closed. Weave your tails in well and trim the threads.

mini scalloped felt flowers Another felt flower! These are easy and so cute. I made them by first cutting out flowers with my Go Baby! Rose of Sharon die. You could cut a flower shape out by hand easily, too. Mine were about 3″ wide. Then I started cutting a spiral shape like so… Continue til you get to the middle, ending with a little circular shape. Then starting with the outside end, glue and roll toward the inside. Continue gluing and rolling… …then at the end tuck and glue the little circular shape. A finished little rosette! I added three to a headband, and they also look really sweet on clips! **Also, a few people asked where I got my elastic headbands-I found them at the dollar store awhile ago! **I used a plain old hot glue gun for the gluing!

How to Make an Oversized Friendship Bracelet In case you haven't noticed, the friendship bracelet is back. And surprisingly, nothing has really changed about it. From the fashion pictures I've seen, they're the same old bracelets I wore in grade school. So, I decided it might me nice to make an oversized version of the bracelet. Instead of using the the traditional material of embroidery thread I used cotton yarn. The method I'm using to make the bracelets is the exact same way I used to make them in the 5th grade. Supplies:Cotton yarn in various colorsScissors To get the correct length of string for you wrist, wrap the yarn around your wrist loosely three times and then add a couple more inches for good measure. Cut as many pieces as you wish to use. Line up all of the yarn. Tape loop down or hook it onto something to keep the bracelet from moving while you make it. Line up your string in the order you want your stripes to go on the left hand side. Starting with the string on the very left, tie a knot around the white string.

Equipments- Czech twin seed beads- Czech fired polished round 4mm- 11/0 seed beads- Clasp & Jump rings- Beading needle size 12 (or 10, I can't remember. lol)- SoNo or Nymo or fireline or your favorite thread. I made this bracelet using the free twin beads, sent to Thailand directly from Czech Republic. If you have facebook, you can visit Preciosa Ornela fan page and check out Twin for Free. EDIT: The free campaign is over now. With bead stitch, I prefer SoNo over Nymo. I got this beautiful clasp from Valerie. Cut the thread around 100 cm. Pass your needle to the first 11/0 seed bead to form a ring. Add one 11/0 seed bead, one 4mm fire polished, and one 11/0 seed bead. Repeat step 3 around the ring. We will continue with another layer. String one twin bead, one 11/0 seed bead, one twin bead, one 11/0 seed bead and one twin bead.
