Macramé owl

There was this macramé ornament that I made, and I thought that I could hang it in my car, but it turned out to be a bit large for that. It's also been a while since I made any jewelry stuff. So I decided to make another macramé owl that could turn out to better… Continue reading Macramé owl

Scrappy earrings

Scrappy because they are made of fabric scraps and look disorganized as well. I tore out strips from unused brown/black fabric, and cut some pieces of leftover brown yarn from my old knitting projects. I made two hoops from silver-colored wire. I created each hoop this way -- first, I made a loop about 1cm… Continue reading Scrappy earrings

Stone pendant

I have this collection of medium-sized irregularly shaped stones that come with holes pre-drilled into them. They're of varying shapes and sizes, and they're a bit heavier than traditional jewelry ingredients (they're stones, after all!) So earrings, necklaces or bracelets were out. Making pendants of them seemed like the thing to do. But then, there… Continue reading Stone pendant

Beaded partial necklace

My first attempt at bead crocheting resulted in a beautiful bracelet and some very painful fingers. 😦 I'd wanted to try my hand at Kumihimo instead, but I haven't managed to buy a disc yet. While I'm thinking if I should make a DIY Kumihimo disc, I decided to give bead crocheting one more shot… Continue reading Beaded partial necklace

Tiny bead earrings and not-so-tiny charm

Tiny earrings -- they have their own kind of charm, don't they? 🙂 I made these earrings using small head pins, and each of them has one seed bead, one brown-and-crimson glass bead and one faceted bead. Nothing special here, I just strung the beads onto the head pin, made an eye loop and snipped… Continue reading Tiny bead earrings and not-so-tiny charm

Flowery bracelet charm

Gosh has it been a long time since I made some jewelry! I've been looking for thicker gauge wire here in Bangalore / India, but my net is still empty, and I'm taking a break from the search now. Meanwhile, I've not tried to create more jewelry with the same old coils of wire I… Continue reading Flowery bracelet charm

Moth earrings

These earrings are one of my early jewelry-making experiments. I made these from some wrapping paper (I think.) They have absolutely no varnish on them, and are suited only for dry days. I cut around 16 elongated-heart shapes from the wrapping paper -- 8 for each earring. (You could just fold the paper a lot… Continue reading Moth earrings

More flowery earrings

Looks like I've become addicted to making flowery earrings. Or maybe I'm jumping into conclusions, because this is only my second flowery pair. 😀 I had this idea for a couple of days before I decided to start looking for suitable beads. And of course, these wonderful beads exceeded my expectations! 🙂 Making each earring… Continue reading More flowery earrings

Textured pendant

Sometimes, ideas just grab hold of you, and you have to execute them, at least to see how they turn out. This was one such time, and the idea was to make a pendant with a lot of texture. This is how it turned out -- And this is how I made it -- Body… Continue reading Textured pendant

Wavy macramé bracelet

I'm so excited to write about this wavy bracelet I made! Considering that I'm just beginning to peep outside my square-knots macramé world and have just started learning new knots, I'm very happy with how this one turned out. Well, this isn't my brain child, though. I followed this neat video tutorial by Macramé School.… Continue reading Wavy macramé bracelet
