Gretchen Jones Necklace | Honestly WTF
If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I have a bit of a fluro/metallic obsession at the moment! If you decide to make this, just be slightly careful as you need to melt the backs with a lighter to keep them in place, so please don’t burn your fingers with melted nylon!

DIY Melted Perler Bead Jewelry. As I’ve posted before, Perler Beads are wonderful for children of an appropriate age because they are big enough for them to thread shoelaces through to make jewelry (one of my favorite small gifts is a tackle box with Perler Beads, shoelaces and the child’s name written with puffy paint on top). 6000 Perler Beads from Amazon (with pegboards) is about $9 here (NO AFFILIATE LINKS). Tutorial from Craft and Creativity here.

DIY Triangular Hand Harness. So easy and cheap to make (but it helps to have a friend with similar sized hands model it for you while you are making it). Tutorial from Pop Champagne here. *Photo by LoveK.

Everything’s coming up roses!  Sweet smelling resin rosebuds have wooed us over in a major way.  Prada boasted delicate floral details on everything from dresses to dangly earrings.   Who What Wear and I have both been drooling over the  Italian fashion house’s coveted Crystal rose earring and agreed we should plant our DIY seed and grow ourselves a pair, inspired by these lovlies.  And yes, you should too!
To create:  Use wire cutters to snip rhinestone trim into two equal pieces (this will determine how long you wish your earrings to hang).  String fishing line through the flower bead and double knot around rhinestone trim and snip.   For extra hold, you may want to dab clear nail polish on your knot.  Apply a small amount of  krazy glue to attach the applique to the back of the chain.  Make sure the flower bead, rhinestone trim and applique are all facing the same direction.  Wait until glue has dried, and adhere earring backs to the back of the flower bead with glue.
