Paper/Fabric Bead Earrings

My previous use of fabric had me thinking of using it again for an easy pair of earrings. At first, I thought I'd make fabric beads, but in my stash search, I found paper calling to me as well. In the end, I made paper beads to which I added fabric strips, and made earrings… Continue reading Paper/Fabric Bead Earrings

Wire crocheted scrunchy bracelet

This is an old project of mine -- a bracelet using wire crochet and beads that I made during my early days of discovering wire crochet. It scrunches up a bit if you apply light pressure on it, so you're safe even if it is slightly bigger than you intended. I'd just made a few… Continue reading Wire crocheted scrunchy bracelet
