DIY Macrame Bracelet Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting!
Jenny Saville JENNY SAVILLE The Mothers, 2011 Oil on canvas 106 5/16 x 86 5/8 inches (270 x 220 cm) Jenny Saville was born in Cambridge, England in 1970. In 1990, midway through her BA course at the Glasgow School of Art, Jenny Saville exhibited in Contemporary '90 at the Royal College of Art. In 1992 she completed her degree as well as showing in Edinburgh and in Critics Choice at the Cooling Gallery, London. Following the success of her show at the Saatchi Gallery in 1994, which generated a great deal of publicity for her work (the images were ubiquitous that year), Saville went on to take part in the exhibition American Passion, which toured from the McLellan Gallery, Glasgow, to the Royal College of Art and the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut. By 1994 many people were familiar with Saville's massive paintings, such as Plan, in which a naked woman is seen from below, her body filling the canvas through a combination of physical bulk and extreme foreshortening.

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!

Brainstorming your story ideas There are so many skills crucial to a writer's success that it's easy to overlook one of the most basic and necessary skills of all: brainstorming. It's especially important when starting a new project and invaluable when it comes to maintaining the ambition and focus necessary to complete it. Don't try to rein in or discipline your brainstorming, no matter how inconvenient it is – brainstorming is what turns an average story into an extraordinary one. Brainstorm day and night, whatever you're doing, wherever you are, whenever you can. Jot down notes as they come to you and put them into their own folders. Make sure you create project folders for all of your strongest story ideas, even those you may not write for years.
