I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna get my ears pierced. I keep finding these awesome earring DIYs that I know would be super easy to make and look adorable (especially those black and white ones, eep!) but can’t wear them. Though this could lead to a really bad spending binge on gorgeous earrings… that’s a price I’m willing to pay!
Though this design looks quite complicated, once you have your beads prepared, it’s just a matter of connecting the pieces together. Plus, instead of having to spend $100 on a necklace, you can make it for around $10! That’s pretty motivational for me!
I remember trying to make one of these necklaces where you sewed the tube and then inserted each bead and then knotting, etc. It was a disaster. This way is so much easier - using an already made necklace and using cord to tie between the beads. Quicker too! And I love that floral fabric tied on - this would be great with your basic tee and jeans!
These bracelets are everywhere right now, on fashion blogs, all over Pintrest. So of course now I want my own! I’m not sure if they would have the bangle blanks at my local craft store (and they certainly won’t have the spikes!) so I’m going on Etsy for my supplies. I love the one with the diamantes!
Though I’m not really into chokers, this was too gorgeous not to share (and I’ve been told that apparently not everyone has the same taste as me, who’da thunk it?!) When you see the original choker you will see what an amazing makeover this is. I particularly love the pom poms!
I’ve always been a bit hesitant when it comes to wire wrapping because it has always seemed hard. But then I discovered that I was using the wrong type of wire! Using the right tools always makes life easier! I’m on the neon side of this choice, though the pearl one is still pretty gorgeous. Maybe I need to make both so that I have a choice!
There are lots of different projects out there on the internet, but this is one of the nicest ones I’ve seen. I love the combination of vintage knobs, hooks and that beautiful frame. Once you add your lovely statement jewelry you’ve got a piece of art for your bedroom!
I saw these spike pieces in a shop on etsy and bought some to make some earrings. So I was excited to see this DIY because now I have another way to use them! I like the double up of the top necklace - it looks great with that denim shirt. Plus I’ve never tried wire wrapping - time to get the old pliers out!
I know, I know, there are a million picture frame jewelry storage DIYs out there… but just because you’ve seen one doesn’t mean you’ve seen them all! The lace ones are good for earrings but only hooks - the studs with backings are more trouble than they’re worth to get on and off. But then the frames with hooks have nowhere to put earrings! Well here is a combination of the goodness from both - hooks for necklaces and a little tray for your earrings. Everything together in one place, plus it looks cute to boot!
A quick search through the interwebs and you’ll see many DIYs like this using a frame for the holder, but I love this one so much I had to share! And I think this would also look great in my house, I just need to find a perfect frame like this one…
Gold Tube Bracelet | Honestly WTF
If you’re wanting to start making your own jewelry, this is a really simple project to start out on. I love the combination of the gold noodles and coloured cord - I actually bought a very expensive version of this and I’m kind of bummed that now I see this! This does include doing some macrame but it’s so fun and once you get the hang of it it’s lots of fun!
Chained Collar Tips | Taylor & Demolish
I’ve been seeing collar tips more and more around the web so I thought I would share a DIY with you so you wouldn’t have to spend a lot of money on one! Taylor & Demolish has created these amazing pair using stud findings. You wear this on your shirt from collar tip to tip. Though you could also wear this as a cardigan clip too. A little bit of punk to your cardy!
Charm Anklet | Harper’s Bazaar
When I was younger I used to have a anklet that had little bells on it. I loved it - it tinkled everywhere I walked! Now I realise that it would have driven everyone nuts! This little charm anklet is much classier but still cute as!
Fringe Earrings | The Alison Show
I’ve often seen these little clampy earring bits (I don’t know what the name is sorry!) while looking through the jewelry section of the craft store but have been confused as to what I can actually do with them. Well here is the perfect DIY! There are so many pretty colours of fringe (if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know how much I love trim!) and there’s even that fringe with the little beads on it - so many cool options. And unlike other big dangly earrings, these won’t be super heavy on your lobes!
Ribbon Wrap Ring | Trinkets In Bloom
This pretty ring is made using a hose clamp! How cool is that?! I love big cocktail rings, they are so much more fun than tiny dainty rings (which look weird on my giant fingers!) And I love the colours - pink and yellow, perfect to go with my basic black outfits!
