If you were to stalk my Pinterest right now you would see that I am a little OBSESSED with beaded fringe earrings right now, and was so excited to give them a try. I can’t lie, I was a little nervous at first, but was pleasantly surprised that they really aren’t that hard to make. So grab some beads, and let’s get to making!
I’m a sucker for minimal design. I love a natural wood and simple lines. It can get a little boring in home decor, but small trinkets like this little pendant make a big impact to me. I love the juxtaposition of the hard plastic resin against a soft and natural wood. I added a tiny clay mountain in there for good measure.

Make your own stylish accessory for winter with a few simple steps.
I recently went to a good friend’s wedding that was so beautiful, I was totally inspired. They’re both aerospace engineers who work for a company that builds rocket ships, so there was a lot of space themed things going on. The tables were each named after constellations and the place markers were little star cookie cutters. I decided to make use of those cookie cutters and create these space themed jewelry dishes.
Every once in a while, my mom and I get together and make soap using the cold process method. It’s very precise and would definitely be frustrating if I attempted it by myself, but I love making the soap as a team. If you’re not up to the complication and the chemicals, there is so much you can do with melt-and-pour soaps! Here are some great ideas.
Make some colorful soap that looks like a geode! It’s a super easy method that doesn’t require any special molds, just some plastic cups!
I don’t know what it is about me, but I can’t be in a room that doesn’t have a clock. I can totally forget about it and get lost in whatever I’m doing if it’s there, but when I’m curious about the time, it’s all-consuming. That’s why I think I’ll need to make a few of these clock crafts. Making a clock is easier than you think!
I love this clock because it makes a huge statement, but it’s more about the art that surrounds those tiny clock hands rather than the time-keeper itself. I love the layers that you build up too.
Add an even more personal touch to your jewelry making with homemade bezels. Make any shape you like, from letters to silhouettes to basic shapes. The possibilities are endless with a little imagination.
