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!
This necklace is made using epoxy clay and decorated with gold leaf. I’ve never tried epoxy clay, but it seems pretty straightforward to use. Chic Steals has a great tutorial on how to use the clay and other tips and tricks - I also love the way she created a layered necklace in one - so much easier than trying to stack chains that always end up tangled!
There are a ton of wire word necklaces out there, but that tiny little tassel really makes this one special to me! How adorable!
I love this necklace but was a bit worried about how hard it would be to create - do I have to get a soldering iron?! Nope, just a few bugle beads and some nylon thread! I might need a few tries before I work out how the prism goes together but I can’t wait to make one for myself!
I love the idea of having a basic chain necklace with a charm I can swap around to suit my mood and outfit! Think of all the possibilities…
When I was a little bub, my next door neighbour and I used to get packets of chips and shrink them in the oven. We thought it was so cool. I have no idea what we did with them after that, but it was fun! I always think of those tiny chip packets when I see shrink plastic projects, but of course these are much cuter and actually serve a purpose! I love the colour combos of this necklace. And there are so many things you could use these bright discs for - keys, christmas decorations, earrings…
