bubble baubles

17 May 2011

I don’t have chains. I’ve always used nylon string for the accessories I make, and the only metal I use are the clasps and jump rings. I do have a supply of wire, but based on my previous experiment, I’ve concluded I need a thicker gauge. So for me to make this bubbly bracelet I saw a tutorial of, I had to make one by connecting these short chains meant for adjustable clasp things. Anyway, after a full morning of twisting and wrestling with various pliers, I eventually ended up with these:

 

1. Bubble bauble — pearly, shimmery, bronze-y plastic beads attached to a makeshift chain bracelet.

PhP 100 (Bird and branch not included)

 

2. Cluster pendants — Leftover beads from the bracelet ended up as pendants because I love the color combination so much 🙂 Suspended on coated wire thingies (Yeah I don’t know what they’re called). The second one is smaller, but has a small metal flower accompanying it.

PhP 80 each

Crafting in CBTL

15 December 2010

Yesterday I attended a party dressed up as Sunshine Corazon in her “Telephone” scene. I had most of the costume down, but she had a bunch of colorful bangles, and I just HAD to have some of those.

Incidentally, a few days back I chanced upon this craft blog post which was perfect for the purpose. I found some black rubbery bracelets and rings at a bazaar (the whole bunch for just 10 pesos!) which I wrapped with yarn to give it some color.
