DIY Jewellery making supplies: Series 1 – Earring base (sequin)

Standard

Hello friends,

Though there are many jewellery makers/crafters, every person’s work is unique ’cause its handmade! Even if you try to make jewellery from inspiration, there will be some change in what you make and make them unique! I want to dedicate this post to those, who think handmade jewellery/craft work is unique and made with love❤

Materials required
Sequin – 6 mm in diameter
Ball chain/Pearl chain/Rhinestone chain – whatever chain you have! I am using pearl chain
Resin Rose Cabochon (You can even use rhinestone or pearls)
Earring Hooks/Jump rings
E6000 (a strong glue)
Tools

My love for rose cabochons never dies!🙂
1. Sequins are usually thin, so
2. Glue 2-3 sequins together and let them dry. This will make a sturdy base!
3. Glue the rose in the center and the pearl chain outside the rose and trim. I wanted the golden base (sequin) to be shown, so I left some space between the rose and chain. You can also fill with rhinestone chain/ball chain. Wait for the glue to dry, as mentioned earlier, E6000 is so forgiving. You can adjust what you have glued as it takes a whole night to dry. But yeah, don’t keep on adjusting!
4.Attach you earring hooks and you are ready to wear!

Here is how mine turned out. I hope you enjoyed this short yet sweet tutorial. I made another pair for my friend at office. She liked it!🙂

DIY Maroon & Gold Tassel earring

Standard

Hello my friends… I had taken a break from my blog work and tried to take care of my other roles (as a working mom), but the craft bug crawled and bit me & I’m back😉

As a typical Indian, I am obsessed with Maroon & Gold combination. I am sure every Indian women has a maroon & gold combination saree, as that is a must color for wedding and it looks absolutely gorgeous no matter the women’s color, size, shape.

Inspired by these colors, I made an earring – a pretty easy one! Steps after materials

Materials required:-

Maroon color bead ( any size, I chose oval)
Gold color beads (spacer beads)
Gold color thread (I used cone thread, but I would personally recommend silk thread🙂 )
Jump rings
Necklace End Cap
Headpins, eye pins
Earring hooks
Jewellery wire 24/26G (I chose 26G brass wire)
Pliers
E-6000

 

20160717_165242Take your eyepin (or make a loop by cutting the end of headpin using pliers). Insert your bead and create a loop on the other end as well

 

Take your Jewellery wire and start winding on the loop. Insert gold spacer beads on to the wire. Take your wire down and wind it on the opposite side loop as well. Insert beads again and close it by winding on the top loop in which you started first. This completes a round/oval – based on your choice of earring. Make a pair.

 

For Tassels, you can refer here. Attach a necklace end cap on the tassel loop using a strong glue.

 

Attach your tassel on the maroon color bead and attach ear hooks. You earring is done!

Here is your final piece – I am in love with the tassel and the color combination, What did you like in this? As usual, comment here and i will get back🙂 Till then – Ciao!
