I almost bought a necklace exactly like this online for a lot more than what it would cost to make. In fact, all I need to make this is Fimo clay - I’ve got the gold paint and chain. I think these would make gorgeous gifts too - I know I’ll be making one for at least one relative!
I bought some rope with the intention of making a few hanging planters (please see previous posts to hear about how this ended up) and now have a bevy of rope. I was thinking of making some jewelry, but didn’t want to look like a lost sailor. I love ombre so this is perfect - it adds colour but still gives you the neutral of the rope. You could even double dip this to get some more colour - if you have an outfit that you’ve had trouble accessorizing, this is the perfect solution.
Mark my words fellow DIYers, you will be seeing more and more marbled fashion & home accessories very soon! So jump on the bandwagon now and make yourself a very simple but sweet little locket with marble paper. Plain lockets are quite cheap and easy to find at craft stores, or you can purchase the craft kit from For The Makers.
One of my favourite things about visiting the Museum was the gum ball machine in the shop - except it didn’t give out gumballs, it gave out crystals! I’ve always had a love of crystals, gems, minerals and all those beautiful things that nature has created. So this DIY immediately caught my eye - and then I saw the part that said ‘no tools required’ and I was hooked! There are lots of shops on etsy selling crystals. My favourites are amethyst, pink druzy and carnelian. Layer them up or wear a single pendant on a long chain.
I’m totally in love with this necklace. A little bit arty, a little bit vintage, and very, very unique. You can guarantee no one will have one exactly like yours! Plus you can make yours even more unique by what you add to it - beads, string, leather. A very on-trend piece that’s perfect to add a bit of boho to any outfit!
I know it’s only July but I’m already thinking about Christmas presents! I’m keen to DIY more gifts this year - last year fell in a big heap - and this beaded necklace would be absolutely perfect for my sister. She saw some very similar ones at some markets that were around $80, but I think i could make her about six for that much (though I might have to keep one for myself)
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 I love about this little lady is that she has so many uses! I know my niece would love her on a necklace (and is so much sweeter than the plastic junk I see in the shops). But I can see her hanging from a pair of keys, or even attached to a zipper on a bag! You could even paint little doll versions of your friends and attach them to gifts!
If you have a kid, then you’ll love The Kids Dept. It’s full of amazing style for the little ones in your life! And though this necklace is meant to be for your mini-me, I see no harm in rocking it yourself! If you’re not a dog lover, try any little plastic animal - maybe an owl or fox?
There are some things I just can’t go past when it comes to re-blogging, and anything geode is one of them! Nature is an amazing artist and geodes are truly unique and beautiful. Geodes can be hard to work with though, but not this version - it’s made out of polymer clay and glitter glass encased in a hand twisted gold wire.
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!
If you’re wondering what a himmeli is (I did!), it’s a traditional Finnish Christmas ornament. I love the simplicity of this pendant - there are so many outfits it would go with! I would make this nice and long to wear with my Summer dresses.
I’m not sure why I like this necklace, but it really took my eye. Perfect for those of us who absentmindedly play with their necklaces! Choose a few different colours of spray paint and make a few to give as gifts and a couple for yourself (or if you don’t want to spray paint them, get your nuts in shades of gold and silver)
My current obsession is with dainty necklaces. I always kind of steered clear of them due to being bigger, but I figure you should wear whatever you want! ‘d love to add this little bow necklace to my collection - it would go so well with my Summer dresses!
It seems that the colour of Summer in Australia is going to be pale blue, and this statement necklace would look fantastic with any piece in that colour. And don’t fret about the difficulty level on this one - the hardest part is probably stitching on the pretty embellishment!
