I always try to feature short hair tutorials but sometimes they’re hard to come by. That’s why I like this ‘hair jewelry’ - you can wear this on short hair as well as long - the two flowers are attached to bobby pins. This is so customisable, and you could even wear these as a cardigan clip!
If you’re keen on making yourself a piece of jewelry but want to start with something easy, then this simple but fun faux horn is a great place to start! I love the gold dipped top (or you could do bronze, silver, pink!) You can leave it on it’s own on the necklace or add a couple of other charms to the mix. Whatever you decide, you’ll end up with a piece that’s as unique as you!
What a great way to use up those lonely one of a pair earrings! These bracelets are easy to tie together and would make a great gift for any fashion forward mum for Mother’s Day!
One of the reasons I love ‘plain’ pieces of jewelry is because they are so versatile - they add something nice to a ‘busy’ outfit, simplicity to a plain outfit and you can easily mix them with other pieces of jewelry. This beautiful copper cuff ticks all the boxes and is so easy to make - just make sure you sand the ends so you don’t hurt your skin!
This sweet little pin will hopefully ensure that you stay pinch free come March 17th! A fun sewing project that is really easy to create - I love that little smiley face!
I really love this bracelet - the combo of pale pink, gold and white ticks lots of boxes for me! Those little gold pieces in the middle of the bracelet are actually from the hardware store (they’re compression sleeves from the plumbing section!). Whip up a couple and gift to friends ‘just because’, I’m sure they’ll love it just as much as me!
It took me a long time to find a tassel tutorial that I actually found easy to follow and that turned out some good looking tassels. But then I found this fantastic tutorial on Henry Happened and I’ve been churning them out! Tassels can be fun and flirty in neon colours or bright colours or elegant and pretty in pastels and metallics. They’re so easy to add to earring hooks or necklaces like in HH’s tutorial, or to add to your keyring or bag.
Can you work out what this necklace is made out of? I had a few guesses but never would have guessed… a wooden bag handle! How clever is that!? The necklace looks amazing with this chambray shirt too, I might need to get one too!
I love how statement necklaces can take your outfit from blah to bam, and this one is no exception! Nautical goes a bit edgy with the addition of gold spikes with this Anthro inspired necklace from Henry Happened, and bonus - it costs a lot less to make than to buy - always good for the hip pocket!
I have some coral beads exactly like the ones in this bracelet that I bought on a whim because I thought they were gorgeous, and then never used because I couldn’t think of what to do with them! I just love this bracelet, it’s the perfect mix of gold chain and coral beads and would look great with so many outfits.
I like the ear cuff look but I don’t enjoy ear cuffs. I had a bad experience with one when I was younger. This earring looks like a cuff, but is actually a long tube with a stud and a larger stabiliser back. Make sure you get the stronger E6000 glue - it’s super strong and perfect for jewelry making and means you won’t lose any of your little swarovskis!
Polymer clay is such a versatile product, but my favourite use for it is to make jewelry. You can make so much out of it and there are so many gorgeous colours! That’s why I jumped on this fab DIY and it’s combo of clay and dripping gold chain. Fun and flirty!
You’ve probably seen necklaces like these at most jewelry stores - I love the mix of wooden, crocheted and coloured beads. Even better, FT says that this is actually a pretty easy piece to create - which means perfect for us beginner jewelers!
At first I was a bit confused about how to make these earrings - did you have to cut the earring pieces out of metal?! Well, no - you cut the pieces out of shrinky dink plastic then spray paint them whatever colour you want. So clever!
Guys, if anyone wants to be a lovely, lovely person and send me some Mod Melts, I would be forever in your debt! I keep seeing all these amazing projects and I have been searching everywhere but… nope. Anyway, these pretty little pendants are made using the opaque ‘milk glass’ sticks. I love the simplicity of these - super quick to make and yet lovely to wear!
