Casserole Bracelet?


What if I call this the “Casserole Bracelet?”… because it is put together using a variety of leftover, extraneous beads that I just had on hand?

πŸ˜† The name kind of amuses me. Thoughts? #casserole #bracelet #CasseroleBracelet

What you need to duplicate it: Memory wire, loop tool, beads, design board, half an hour.



Have you made something silimar with your leftover beads? Show me, please! Drop a link to your site in my comment section or tag/message me on Pinterest

DIY: ribbons & rhinestones braided bracelet or choker

Easy Project! Just follow the photos!


Supplies


Knot one end and cut to desired length. I used multiple ribbons, a silver chain, a black chain, and a strand of gold prong set rhinestones.


Braid it. Tie a knot at the other end.


Trim the excess, leaving one chain long on the end. Attach the clasp with pliers and a jump ring onto the short end of chain. The long end of chain will give you options for length when wearing it as a necklace.


Summary:


Wear it as a choker OR double wrap it as a bracelet!

I’ll love you even more, if you do!! πŸ’žπŸ™Œ

Kumihimo + Garnet = Perfection!

ALMANDINE GARNET! KUMIHIMO!
So today, I wrapped a stone for the first time ever.
I used 16 gauge wire around my Almandine Garnet from SageGoddess.com to wear as a pendant on the Kumihimo necklace that my 13 year old daughter, Caroline aka “Cali,” made for me.
This is absolutely a favorite piece of jewelry, now.
Sacred Adornment?
Indeed.

Vintage Globe into New Lampshades!

20140319-203325.jpg

Easily turn a vintage globe into a new pair of lampshades!
Just saw the globe in half. Use a hot glue gun to adhere trim/fringe. Drill a hole in the top, so that it secures between your lamp harp and finial.
Viola!
You’ve made vintage fun and funky!
