I am so excited to be able to share this whimsical woodland globe ring tutorial with you today. I can’t remember exactly when or where I first came across this idea, but I knew I would have to try and make one. So, I got on Etsy, did some research and used the gift cards I received for my birthday to order supplies.

This ring turned out way better than […]

I recently discovered this nifty sticker maker. Of course, I just had to try it out. We used it at our craft club to make earrings, but I am also showing you how you can make pendant necklaces using this method. It is definitely much easier than the glaze method I’ve used previously.

At our last craft club get-together it was my turn to organize and teach a craft. I chose several earring and ring projects. I’ve already shared the cabochon jewelry with you and today we’re moving on to a glitter project. {No surprise there, right. 😉 } It’s actually quite similar to the glitter necklace pendant I shared a while back.

Enjoy!

Jewelry Valet – A Storage Solution

So, I have a little bit of a jewelry storage problem. Here’s where I’ve been keeping my necklaces, tucked away in the corner of the closet. Not convenient to get to and also easy to overlook what’s there. {I know you’re wondering why in the world I have that colorful beaded necklace ;)}

As I was looking through a catalog that came to the house, I came accross this jewelry over-the-door valet. It seemed […]

A Homemade Christmas ~ Pendant Necklaces

I like to wear it and thought it would make a great Christmas gift for my children’s music teachers. So, I did a little research and tried my hand at making Scrabble pendants, but mine didn’t quite turn out. I had pretty much given up on the idea, when quite by chance, I found […]
