Desperate times call for desperate measures. Believe me, I seem to get to know this phrase better and better, what with me carrying my DIY materials from place to place and installing my canvas, by new studio lamp and everything I need to work on kitchen tables and dining room tables. But if you ask me, I find working in different living situations quite interesting for it trains me to adapt and I find new materials for my background shots. Remember the marble background from last week? Found that in my grandma’s cabinet!
But not only did I need to adapt to my parents’ home again, I really needed to improvise on this project (I actually do this rather often, but not so drastically). What I actually wanted to do? Bake. What didn’t work out? Baking. Well, it was Sunday so I couldn’t get anything as replacement for the terrible disaster in the kitchen. Wasn’t as terrible as you might think (my boyfriend’s colleagues have enjoyed the outcome), but nearly not good enough to post on the blog. And to be honest, I’m more into cooking rather than baking, especially if it has something to do with frosting or working with fondant. I bake rather to taste than to look good, and that is a rather bad prerequisite for a blog (as sad as that sounds, it can look awesome but taste horrible and nobody will know). I’m not a pro in this blog thing, although I work to come reeeeally close. So what I wanted to do was cheesecake pops. It didn’t work out this time, but maybe I’ll try again in a few weeks. I’m not done with these monkeys! What I did instead was this:
- Delicate golden chain
- Some embellishments like:
- A piece of chunky golden chain
- A piece of rhinestone chain
- A single rhinestone
- Small golden beads
- Two eyepins
- Five jump rings
- Jewellery pliers
- Super glue
Start by preparing the embellishments: Attach jump rings to either side of the single rhinestone and to either side of the chunky chain. Measure the length of the simple chain ring. Thread the beads on one of the eyepins and attach the chain to one side of the pin. Super glue the piece of rhinestones to the other eyepin and attach the chain.
Adjust the length of each chain to the size of your fingers (depending on which finger you like to wear it on), take the eyepin as help. With your jewellery pliers bend the wire until you have another eyelet. Repeat with the other eyepin.
Attach the other end of the chain to the other eyelet.
For the other three rings: Attach the chain to one jump ring. Measure the length of the chain depending on the size of your fingers, and attach the other end to the other jump ring.
This has been one of the simplest jewellery DIYs I have ever done before, and it had to be for its replacement status. But you didn’t notice, did you? I really really like those, especially of you wear more than one on your finger! Hope you are inspired!
