I love the look of earthy, handmade jewelry. When I save up some money I plan on getting this ring. Sigh. But as you can see, it’s quite expensive! Though these rings don’t have a big ol’ jewel on the top, I still love this DIY because it’s so simple and cheap to make but still has the look.
Though I don’t like eating marmalade, I love the word. It makes me feel warm and happy! So of course I’m loving this marmalade bracelet - especially as the colours are reminiscent of the preserve. If you’ve attempted to braid on chain before and failed (as have I!) then this tutorial goes in to detail on how to accomplish it easily.
In my dream house, I would have a library that has a shelf that you push and… it’s a door! And behind the door there’s a spiral staircase that leads to a secret room. But pretend that you don’t know that in case I one day build it and invite you over. Until then, I will make one of these awesome faux book jewelry boxes! There are lots of faux books out there but they are all… very fake looking. You want your secret box to look passable! Even better, you can download and print the Little Women book cover from Dream A Little Bigger so you can make your own. I promise that if I come over to your house and see it on your bookshelf to not look in it!
You probably don’t have the tools on hand for this craft, but I think it’s worth it to make this amazing bracelet! I love the simplicity of a plain resin bracelet, but of course you can add anything to the resin before it sets. All you need is the basics - a bracelet mould and resin! You can wear this bracelet with anything - but I have to say it has a real Wintery style to it and looks great with the white knit jumper!
These really are incredibly simple to make - all you need is lace, some stiffener and hooks! For a bit of colour you can add paint in colours or metallics (like in the bottom two pics) or plain white in the top pic. This way you can make earrings to match any outfit you have! If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even add some beads or tassels to take them to the next level!
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.
