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!


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.


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

Like it? Share it, please!

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

Kumihimo + Garnet = Perfection!

So today, I wrapped a stone for the first time ever.
I used 16 gauge wire around my Almandine Garnet from 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?

This piece isn’t for sale, but SageGoddess has more gemstones and ALMANDINE GARNETS available on her website, and CraftingCali has other KUMIHIMO available in her Etsy store!

Vintage Globe into New Lampshades!


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.
You’ve made vintage fun and funky!
