Boy. It’s been a while since I’ve last logged in to WordPress….. Never fear, I haven’t completely forgotten about it as I’m here today to share about a really simple restyle I did the other week.
Basically, what you need is something to redo and colour paint of your choice and a paintbrush. Pretty easy. 🙂 I think this whole project from start to finish took about 2 hours at the most but I had a lot of space to paint. And I did two or three coats over the whole thing, which I highly recommend doing.
Here’s what my metal flower used to look like:(Purple isn’t my favorite color.) 🙂
After a few coats of paint, here’s what my new flower looks like:
I like it much better. 🙂
Here is another DIY jewelry project I did. I picked up this pocket watch pendant at Michaels too. Using a long piece of chain, some jump rings, and clasp, I turned it into this:
This is all it was! I’d say it turned out great! 🙂
Howdy! Sorry I haven’t posted anything in ages! It seems like I wait to post something worth while, so I wait. Having said that, today I am bringing you a couple of inspirational projects that I recently did that you will hopefully like. 🙂
I was at Target a couple weeks ago and saw a necklace there that I just had to have. However, it cost $17 and I was not going to pay that for something I could easily make. No way. The original design had pearls and a gold heart pendant that was about 2 or so inches wide. I knew I could make it myself, so after waiting what seemed like forever, I went to Michaels. They didn’t have a gold heart pendant, but I was able to adapt the design a little and use another pendant that worked. (Btw, Michael’s has way more cute pendants than Joanns…)
This is everything I used:
2 99 cent strands of white pearls
About 3-4 feet of bronze/gunmetal colored wire
3 jump rings (I made some out of my colored wire so it matched using my round nose pliers and wire cutter)
Round nose pliers
I attached three pearls together with wire and attached the pendant. Then, I attached a jump ring to three pearls, and made one strand of pearls on both sides which I also attached to the jump ring. I finished it off to my desired length, and attached a large ring and clasp to finish it! 🙂
It ended up looking like this: ( sorry about the poor photography quality; the camera on my kindle is not very good)
I really like how it turned out!! 🙂
So the other day I found this really cute bracelet idea. I made one for myself and thought that it turned out looking great! 🙂 The website that I found this tutorial on did a good job explaining how to make this bracelet, so, I will direct you to there for the instructions.

Have fun with it. 🙂
So, I got this great idea for jewelry making the other day. I made this necklace today and really like it. Just wanted to share the idea with you. All that it’s made of is a silver leaf pendant, gray pearl, and a deep purple swarovski crystal, a large one….
I probably used around 30 inches of silver chain…… about. It’s supposed to be long, but you can cut the chain to the length of your choice. 🙂 You can find similar supplies at your local craft store.
