~Adorn'd~ Weekend DIY Fun....

Monday, August 29, 2011

Hi Everyone!!

I had a packed weekend of plans, rest, and creativity. I really wanted knockout some projects and ideas I has swirling around in my head and in the countless journals and lists that I keep! I didn't get to all the projects and then I discovered one I wanted to try later. Crafting and creating is such a release. I turned on some great music to set the tone and got at it!

I watched a video on  making vintage earrings into rings. I have a bag full of missing set clip-ons that I was wondering what I would do with them. The DIY tutorial video for them was simple as pie to do...




First, I had to break part of clip-on off ( which was not easy) and glue the ring post on. I got my ring post from other rings I that I own and never wear....
I loveeee this one....
And here is the other one....
I playing around with making some hoops also. My Wal-Mart has a new craft section full of beads and jewelry making items. Its a God send since the nearest Michaels, Jo-Ann, and Hobby Lobby are 45 minutes away. I literally picked up these beads and stones for like $1-$3 a bag....The rumor is that Walmart is replacing their fabric sections too.
I've been wanting a pair of white earrings all summer....And I would make them at the end of August....but we got summer to at least November here. lol

I saw this combination of wood, diamonds, and turquoise on a jewelry site and that was my inspiration for this pair.....

Did anyone do any DIY projects this weekend????
