DIY Jewelry Projects, or activities for a 17 hour road trip

Last Christmas I sat in the back seat of a compact car for over 17 hours driving from Texas to Ohio. Yes, I, too, wondered “What the hell was I thinking?!?” So to pass the time I brought a little box filled with tools and supplies and an iPhone with the Pinterest app and set out for some fierce back-seat-jewelry making! Since then I also made a couple other pieces included in this post. And…

Button Earrings

Another project for my online craft class. Button earrings! So easy and fun. I might have to buy more button makers and make more. Alas, if only all craft experiences were so easy. I’ve had two craft fails this week. One was this embroidered necklace I was trying to make but the fabric was too stiff and everything kept fraying or not staying tight enough. Ugh, it was a mess. The other was a stuffed…

I bought the beads to make these earrings about a year ago. I can’t believe I let them sit around for so long. We’ll I finally made them! Pretty simple but I like ’em. Jewelry pliers are an amazing tool. I’ve been in a creative mood lately.
