Wait – Didn’t You Already Make That?

Yes. Yes I did.

I was laughing with a friend a couple of weeks ago – she said that I probably had a ton of jewelry from all my projects. And I had to think for minute – and I realized I don’t!

I’ve actually given a lot of it away – either in giveaways or gifts or whatever. With Snap (awesome blog conference) coming up next week it was time for me to get my jewelry making on and follow some of my own tutorials!

Lace and Bead Necklace

I started off with one of my favorite jewelry tutorials I’ve done. It’s a knockoff of the Anthro Beatrix Necklace. You can check out the first one I made as well as the tutorial if you want to make your own.

Lace, Bead and Chain Necklace

I didn’t change up too much for the original tutorial, other than to use the chain and beads I had on hand. Yay for stash crafting!

Necklace DIY

I haven’t  planned out my outfits completely yet but I think this one with go with almost everything don’t you?

I also have not had a Party Animal necklace for my very own – so Mr. Camel got some stylin.

Camel Necklace

Doesn’t he look nifty? He’s all dressed up with pom poms and rhinestones and a crown. All camels should wear crowns I think. Makes me think of the three wise men. Random.
Anyway – you can check out the original tutorial for ideas on how to dress up other animals.

Circus Camel

He looks like he’s smirking doesn’t he? It could be because he’s so stylish now. It could also be because he is shocked at the getup I’ve put him in. It’s a toss up.

Circus Camel Necklace

I used an longish chain for him – that way I can wear it as a long pendant or layer it with something else. What goes with a clown wearing camel?

Another project that I’ve been meaning to make for myself is the Sparkled Silk Wrap bracelet. I think I’ve made up 6 or 7 of these, but I didn’t have one of my own until now.

Yarn and Rhinestone Bracelet

I’ve made these up in yellow, gray, and dark teal – but I decided to stick with the mint I used in the original tutorial because I think it will go with a lot of my Snap outfits.

It will look cute layered with other bracelets too I think!

Rhinestone Wrap Bracelet

I’ve also been busy making up a bunch of leather cording bracelets.

Isn’t it cute? My grand plan is to be able to hand them out with my business cards. So far I have 157 made so this week I’ll be busy knotting – in addition to everything else I have to do!

So that’s what I’ve been up to this week!

What about you? Do you do last minute stuff like this before a trip/event?


  • So many bracelets!!! Still love that first necklace tutorial! :)

  • Very fun!! I didn’t realize you haven’t been stashing your awesome jewelry. I can’t wait to see all of these pieces in person! :)

    Th camel is a rock star! I can’t wait to see him. You should give him his own hashtag on Instagram so he can become famous. :) I can’t wait to see you again. One week!!!!

    I never made jewelry until recently- I love your jewelry posts! I blame you if i go nuts and buy the whole jewelry section at the craft store! I made one of those fabric knot necklaces with beads inside.

    Love all of your jewelry tutorials! And that’s a great idea – the cute leather cord bracelets. Where did you find the colorful leather cord and metal tubing?

    I was wandering if there is a free pattern for the leather bracelet. (the one you have made over 150 of them) It looks easy but I am new to jewelry making and would like to make ones similar to this one. Thank you if you can help me. (email would be preferable thanks again)

      I haven’t done a tutorial for that – though I should!! I’ll try and write one up in the next couple of weeks and email you. :) Thanks for the suggestion!
