DIY Pearl Choker

The designer turned up the ol’ pearl game about 100 notches with ginormous pearl necklaces, bracelets and rings for Chanel‘s spring collection. Costumey, over-the-top and DIYable . . . I was sold. Next came the painstakingly long search for the largest pearls I could find and in my hunt for pearls, came the inspiration to make rings inspired by Russian designer super chic double pearl rings. It’s a pearl party and everyone is invited!

DIY Anklet

These days we’re all for reincorporating the anklet back into our accessory repertoire. Made with thin chain and tiny charms, delicate anklets are the perfect summer trinket for those beachy bare feet or barely there sandals. This week’s DIY requires only two pairs of pliers and a handful of accessible supplies – which can then be used to make bracelets and necklaces, too!

DIY Braided Cuff

The weather is getting warmer and the sleeves are getting shorter. Exposed wrists are in desperate need of jewelry – some new, some old and some handmade. This season, I’m all about making these braided brass cuffs. The most complicated step to this tutorial is drilling holes through the cuff but if you’ve got a steady hand and a tiny drill bit, you’ll be churning these out before you know it.

DIY Bangle, No Tools Needed

I see so many do-it-yourself jewelry projects that I’m desperate to try. I often buy all the materials, get my tools ready, and then majorly fail during the execution. I’m really intimidated by anything that requires a clasp, so I was thrilled to come across these wooden craft bangles for $3. I had a bunch of ombre rainbow cord leftover from one of my above-mentioned failed projects (a recreation of this necklace), so I gave it a while. And it worked. NO clasp. NO tools. NO talent. Victory! Many more bangles projects in our future…
