There are days that I adore to wear many dainty gold necklaces… there are days that I want to express my love… there are days that I just want to feel protected and lucky! My Dainty Gold Infinity necklace with the tiny evil eye is just perfect for these days!!! Let’s make it together…
Materials for Dainty Gold Infinity Necklace:
– Gold Plate Chain
– Gold Plated Jump Rings
– Head Pin
– Gold Plated Infinity charm
– Tiny evil eye bead
– Gold Plated Clasp
– Gold Plated Chain Tag For the Clasp
– Plier Set
Step 1: Let’s start by making the evil eye charm. Just pass the evil eye bead in the head pin and close it with a plier, creating a loop.
Step 2: Connect the infinity charm with the gold chain with a jump ring.
Measure the chain and cut a piece of it according to your requirements. Connect the second edge of the charm with the remaining end of the chain.
Cut the chain in the middle and use two jump rings to connect the clasp and the chain tag at each end. Your main necklace is ready!
Step 3: Let’s make it a little more unique… just connect the evil eye to one of the jump rings that connect the infinity charm with the chain.
Your necklace is ready! And believe me…you are going to love it wearing it alone or with more dainty necklaces!
Who doesn’t love a good statement necklace? I am, so I’m always trying to find new ways to make one! This time I used cord in 3 different colors. Read on to see how to make this DIY statement necklace!
Here are the materials I used for this statement necklace:
-cotton cord (rope) in 3 different colours
-faux stone cabochon
-flat aluminium wire
Start by placing the cords the way you like. The two smaller pieces were the same length and I used the black one as the primary color. It’s hard to keep them in place so add a dab of glue between them to make it easier.
Then cut two pieces of your wire and use it to wrap the cords together so they stay together. You can wrap that wire with your hands, it’s very flexible. Just make sure to tack the ends nicely at the back using pliers.
Now glue the cabochon in the middle.
Finally you’ll need to glue the clasp. The ends of this cord fray easily so to be able to fit them in the clasp a good trick is to cover them with some tape first.
Glue them, let it dry and you are ready!
Now go ahead and wear your new necklace! Be happy!
If you love chains and beads, then double chain beaded bracelet is just perfect for you. Let’s see how to create it!
Jewelry making supplies for double chain beaded bracelet:
– Agate Beads (7 beads of 8mm)
– Gold Plated Stardust Beads (2 beads of 4mm)
– Gold Plated Chain
– Gold Plated Clasp
– Jump Rings ( two different sizes because the chain has small rings)
– Gold Plated Crimps
– Jewelry wire in gold tones
– Plier Set
Step 1: Let’s start now building the bracelet and specifically with the beaded part. First cut a piece of jewelry wire and use a crimp on the end to create a loop.
Start with the stardust bead and then add the agate beads and end it again with the second stardust bead. Use the second crimp and make a loop.
The beaded part is ready.
Step 2: Proceed now making the chain part. Measure your wrist and then try to cut a piece of the gold plated chain that the half of it combined with the beaded part will be almost equal to your wrist’s length.
Pleat the chain in the middle and pass the small jump ring. Connect the first jump ring with the second larger one. Repeat the same step on the second end of the chain.
Connect the first end of the chain with the beaded part.
and add on the free end of the beaded part the lobster. In order to do this, just use a jump ring.
The bracelet actually is ready! Just have in mind to choose a lobster that will feet perfectly with the rest of the jewel and it will look as a really beautiful detail of the bracelet.
Enjoy it wearing alone or with more beautiful chain or beaded bracelets. I love the combination of yellow gold with hot pink…what about you? And you know what is the best part of this bracelet? That looks different from every side… same bracelet, different styles!
Button and Bead Bar Necklace DIY tutorial to share with you guys!
What I adore is to create jewels with common and uncommon materials. For example, have you ever thought that buttons can be combined beautifully with gemstone beads creating a dainty bar necklace? Let’s see how to create this horizontal bar necklace and I bet it’s perfect to wear it alone or stack it with more gorgeous necklaces.
Materials needed for Button Beaded Bar Necklace:
Gemstone beads ( I have used a large bead from white volcanic lava and two beads from lilac agate)
Gold Plated Chain
Gold Plated jump Rings
Gold Plated Round Lobster
Step 1: Let’s prepare the beaded part of the jewel. In case you do not have an eyepin (like I did) just cut the ends of the pin you have and create with the round nose plier two rings.
Pass the beads and the buttons in the pin ( I have passed the lilac agate, then two wooden buttons, then the lava bead and then the two buttons and and the lilac agate bead again) and your bar is ready!
Step 2: Cut a piece of the chain in a length smaller than the desired final length (just do not forget that lobster and jump rings and the beaded bar will add more length in your jewel). Use a jump ring and connect the beaded bar with the gold plated chain. Repeat this for both ends.
Step 3: Check where is the middle of the chain and cut it. Use again two jump rings to connect the chain with round lobster (or any lobster).
The pretty horizontal bar necklace is ready!
What do you think? I think that buttons were combined so beautiful with the gems! And when you wear it…none will realize that you have buttons on your beaded bar necklace!
Boho trend is huge this summer! Just make a pair of stunning boho style chandelier earrings, if you are looking to complement your boho outfit! Here’s the easy how-to!
Materials for boho style earrings:
-acrylic beads, I used 10 small acrylic drop pendants
-2 earring findings like the one pictured
-10 small 4mm beads
-2 earring hooks
-10 headpins with loop
Also, you’ll need round-nose pliers.
Take one headpin and thread one bead and make a loop at the end. Make the loop big enough to fit the drop pendant’s hole.
Slide the pendant through and secure.
Now open the smaller loop and attach all of it to one of the earring finding’s hole.
Repeat the above steps until you have connected all drop pendants to all the holes.
Finally, connect the earring hook and move on to the second earring.
