Tonight I'm especially excited as it's my very first DIY day for this blog!!
Frankly, I've been addicted to DIY for a while now, taking in account my creativity and crafty nature. So, making something myself always makes that item extra special!
And I'll tell you my little secret that I'm totally obsessed with statement jewelry. It's like wearing a piece of art!
So, I recently discovered this piece by Joomi Lim, and I immediately rolled my sleeves for some exciting work!
|Original Joomi Lim Fringe Necklace $408|
You will need:
1. 2 pieces of contrast fringe, different length (about 3/8 of yard)
2.Ribbon 1/2" width (matching or contrast)
3.Several bead strings (I used 3 different, very sparkly resembling Swarowski)
5.Jewelry maker's stretching clear plastic cord
Step 1. Attach two pieces of fringe at the edge with hot glue.
Step 2. Cut two pieces of ribbon (about 1 ft long). Attach to each side of fringe using glue gun. Make sure it's secured properly. See photo.
Step 3. Now, start attaching the first string of beads to the top edge using stretching jewelry cord, and tie knots at the back. Clip the excess. To make sure beads lay in the desired direction, you can secure strings with regular thread and needle.
Step 4. Then repeat Step 3. with the rest of strings until they all lay nice and flat. Now, tie your bib and your very own piece is ready to wear!!
Step 5. Make sure to wear your piece with pride and smile, and stay tuned for more exciting projects!
What do you think? I hope I inspired some of you into handmade culture and unique attitude!!
