As I mentioned in a post a few weeks ago about a DIY crayon ring, I’ve been wanting to wanting to make some air-dry clay jewellery for ages now. So I decided to try making something that combined clay and thread, using the thread to stitch a pattern on the ring. I am actually very happy with how it turned out and it was very easy too! Read on for how to make your own…
Last night I had one of those nights where you just lie there, incessantly awake. For hours. I couldn’t blame the baby, or the snorer that lay next to me, just my own chattering brain. I kept thinking about house jobs that needed to be done and ideas of things I could make.
I have tons of ring bases sitting in a box, waiting to be turned into something. I think I’d like to attempt something with air dry clay, but first I thought I’d try making a ring with an old colouring pencil. So I did that – and it was super simple.
I saw this gorgeous DIY necklace on blog popsicles&pinatas a few weeks ago of a necklace made from a twig wrapped in embroidery thread. It looked awesome so I decided to attempt my own version. I popped to the local park and scoured the ground for suitable twigs. Yes, I did look a bit odd. But I had the end vision in mind so I put up with it. When I found my chosen bit of twig (which took longer than anticipated… I had a very clear image of what said twig should look like!) I got straight to it – and it really only took me 15 minutes to make. A perfect little project to do during nap times!
