Earlier this month I shared a chain version of my DIY convertible bracelet choker. This week, I wanted to share the glass bead version that I love to wear as a bracelet. But it can be worn as a choker necklace or a wrap bracelet, it’s up to you!
Ever since I made my DIY version of the Bina Brianca convertible travel wrap I’ve been a little obsessed with making other convertible pieces like the DIY convertible blanket wrap. This time I made a few different versions of a DIY convertible bracelet choker; wear it as a choker necklace or a wrap bracelet! Be on the lookout for a second version I’ll be sharing later this month. Sign up for email updates so you don’t miss it!
Move over glass slippers here comes an equally awesome glass necklace! I was at Jo-Ann buying some material for a different DIY project when I came across these awesome glass cube beads by Blue Moon. I bought them not knowing what I’d use them for. When I go home, I quickly realized that I loved them most when they were strung together. It’ll probably take you longer to gather the materials for this tutorial than it takes to make this DIY glass necklace!
This trendy piece of jewelry has been red hot since spring this year and it’s super easy to make. I’m not sure why anyone would want to buy these when you can salvage the materials from old jewelry and make them over into something fresh like this DIY wrap lariat!
This month, I’ve slowed down on the DIY projects because life has been a little hectic and I had to put some things on the back-burner. I’m a self-professed hoarder and had come across some necklaces that I don’t wear anymore but couldn’t bear to throw them away. I thought it’d be fun to remake some of them into something I would wear. Layered necklaces have been all the rage the last few seasons and can be easily done yourself with a few simple items.
I was inspired by this gorgeous necklace that was sold out on Anthropologie. But I was able to find stones that had the right shape at Jo-Ann to make a similar necklace.
The end of December is getting closer and closer, that means you’ve either finished gift shopping for all your loved ones or you’re scrambling around like a chicken with it’s head cut off getting things together. This week I wanted to share a few last minute gift ideas that are extremely easy and fast to make. Today’s DIY is a rock necklace that can be made in less than ten minutes once you’ve gotten the hang of wire twisting.
This month I’ve decided to start tackling some major eyesores around the house. First thing I needed to fix was my jewelry organization and nightstand. Ever since the statement necklace trend happened I’ve been at a loss at how to organize them. I’ve been storing them in a tray in my nightstand and I tend not to wear most of it because it’s not in front of my face. I have the bad habit of wearing the things that I readily see and forget about the stuff hidden away in drawers or underneath other jewelry. I also have too much stuff on my nightstand and needed a good de-cluttering session.
I’m a fan of jewelry. I especially love the ones from stores like J.Crew, Madewell and Free People, but sadly I do not have the budget to buy all the ones I want. So I turn to Forever 21 or H&M for similar items. Sometimes I think it’s better to buy the cheap jewelry because I don’t have to worry if I accidentally lose it or break it. It was just a few bucks and didn’t make a big dent in my budget.
However the downfall of the cheap jewelry is how easily they tarnish and can leave my fingers or wrists or whatever body part it comes in contact to green. And the design may look nice, but the metal usually has a cheap sheen.
