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?
😆 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.

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!
I’ll love you even more, if you do!! 💞🙌

Jewels Behind the Scenes become the Scene!
My poor, lucky husband is so outnumbered cohabitating with me and our three daughters. He’s such a good sport about it, especially considering that I have the audacity to leave a path of personal accessories in my wake throughout the house intermittently throughout the day.
I wear jewelry everyday. Sometimes, when I remove it, I’m not near my jewelry chests in our master bedroom, so I’ve taken to adorning miscellaneous places to suit my fancy of the moment as I remove it, lately. For example, if one were to feel heated after wearing a heavy stone necklace outdoors to water the garden, it makes sense to remove it when returning indoors. If said stone necklace looks fab adorning a cross atop the fireplace mantle in the dining room, then it is only logical it should reside there. Right? Right!!
And, Earrings dangling from a bowl above a new book that just arrived in mail because I took the earrings off while using the phone look great on the bowl . . .
. . . Furthermore, a black shell floral necklace and an oversized gold floral bracelet hanging from leaf plates on the dining room sideboard because I took them off while clearing the table after dinner should stay on display.
The plan: I have multiple jewelry jewelry chests with jewelry organized by color and theme for each drawer that is only seen by me, unless worn. While it stays protected, it sure is a shame that the beauty of the pieces is largely unseen, thus unappreciated, by my daughters and me while tucked away. So, for at least the next few weeks, I’m wearing a new piece or two from the chests each day and adorning a new spot in the house!
I have a big chandelier in the foyer hanging snugly to our 10′ ceilings that sure looks like it for awhile it may need vintage colored pearls and rhinestone brooches on ribbons and . . . 🙂 What do YOU think? Should I just GO for it? I think I shall!!
Oh! Oh! Oh! Speaking of jewelry adorning things, I almost forgot to show you a little jewel I purchased for a few dollars at an estate/moving sale recently: it’s a heavily lacquered painting on wood that is inlaid with mother-of-pearl/abalone shell! It features three young ladies in an orchard, so I immediately connected it to represent our three daughters in our backyard with their big
walnut, little apple, and 3 peach trees! Love it, love it, love it, I do!
🙂 Looking forward to hearing from YOU!

Real Butterfly Necklace!
Here is my new butterfly necklace that I assembled this week … just in time for Spring!
I am so pleased with how it came together!
It is assembled using silver chain, real butterfly wings encased in resin, little stainless steel butterfly charms, lots of jump rings and a lobster clasp.
I’ve taken photos in various light to try to showcase the depth and variation of color of these beautiful butterfly and moth wings. It’s amazing to me how different the wings appear depending upon whether they’re in natural sunlight, indirect light, or under a lamp!
The details: (click on photos to enlarge into a new window)
