DIY Leaf Pendant

DIY leaf pendant for necklaces and bracelets

Fall is one of my favorite seasons because the leaves change. Every year around this time I get really excited to see it. But every year it passes and all I have is pictures.

This year, I found a way to preserve the part I love so much. I’ve made a pendant to capture the color change.

Will the leaf remain this color, you ask? I think so, because the leaf bookmark I made a few years ago is still vibrant. Read the whole post

DIY Vintage Necklace

DIY vintage necklace

I’m a really big fan of vintage jewelry. Most of the time I admit I would never wear it, but I really like the way it looks. The other day, I was at Michael’s (of course, it’s like my second home), and found these really cute key charms. They’re not really vintage keys, obviously, but they’re close enough in appearance. I wanted to make something with them, but the craft I planned on making this week didn’t work out like I’d hoped. Read the whole post

The Craft Challenge

This blog post is part of The Craft Challenge.

DIY diffuser charm necklace

The June theme for this Craft Challenge was jewelry and I was having a hard time coming up with something to make. Jewelry is usually a pretty easy one for me because I make so much of it. Turns out, that was my problem. I’ve made a little bit of every kind of jewelry and I don’t want to repeat any of my tutorials. So, I tweeted for a fresh perspective. Read the whole post

DIY Beaded Charm Necklace

I’ve had the materials to make this necklace for weeks now and was finally able to fit it into my DIY schedule. Yay!

It’s sooo easy to make and costs less than $5 (unless you want a really fancy chain.) It also took about 15 minutes to put together, so the next time you need a necklace when going out and you don’t like any of the ones you have, consider making this one.

DIY Tile Jewelry

One of my coworkers told me about this event called Zero Landfill a while back. Click on the name and check out the site. This event is AWESOME! This group arranges for business in the creative industries to drop off their “scraps” in one location on a specific date. Otherwise, these scraps would go into the garbage and get thrown into a landfill. The group arranges the scraps in a building and advertise for anyone to come and look through them and take whatever they think they could use. Read the whole post
