DIY Minimal Bar Earings


Hi everyone, today's diy is so simple and quick to make, it takes probably 10 minutes to make the earings, and they look great with almost every outfit. Silver stands out more against my skin tone, but you can also make these in gold or copper.


Materials:
  • Pliers;
  • Wire;
  • Strong glue;
  • Metal bead tubes in silver



Make a small cut on the tube, this will help gluing and conceal the wire.



Cut about 2 cm of wire and fold the edge in a 90ยบ angle.



Put glue on the folded part of the wire, insert it into the tube and let it dry.
Use those rubber earing backs to hold.
And it's ready!  Isn't it simple?



What do you think? Do you like the minimalistic look?

DIY Mini Tassels using a fork


Hi everyone, this post is a quick diy tip for an easy way to make mini tassels using a fork, yes a fork, it is as simple as that. So the next time you make tassels for your jewelry or decorations, maybe you can try this tip and tell me what you think.

You will need:
  • Scissors;
  • Fork;
  • Thread.


1. Tie one end of the thread on the fork and wrap it around, you can make your tassel as fluffy or as thin as you want, just wrap the thread more or less times.



2. Cut the thread leaving around 30 cm or 11 inches to tie tightly around the top, like in the picture.


3. Slide the tassel of the fork and cut the ends.



And that's it, pretty easy right? I'm still trying to figure out what to do with all these tassels, any suggestions?

I hope you liked this.

DIY Clay Beads Necklace




Hi everyone, looking trough my necklace collection most of my necklaces are silver and gold, so I decided to create something more colorful this time.
This project can be done with air dry or polymer clay, but although I have already worked with polymer clay before, in these types os projects I always use air dry, maybe because I'm too lazy to cook the beads in the woven.


You will need:

1. Make beads of different sizes with the clay and use the end of a small paintbrush to make the holes, let the beads dry completely. If you want to make the exact same necklace you will need to make 4 large beads, 5 medium beads and 2 small beads.


2. To make the coral paint, mix 2 parts of pink or crimson paint, 1 part of yellow and 1 part of white.



3. A trick to hold the beads while painting is to stick them on a pencil.
Paint medium sized dots on your larger beads with the light coral paint.


4. Now, use a small paint brush to paint around the dots.


5. Paint the rest of your beads with the different shades of coral and let the paint dry.
6. Thread the beads onto the cord and tie a knot at the end.
And it's done!


Love the finished look of this necklace, you can also change the colors, it would look great in turquoise, if you want to give it a try.

Do you prefer using air dry clay or polymer clay?
