I’m getting more organized this year and that includes making something to display my jewellery where I can see it, so I’ll be prompted to wear it more often. I made two frames, one for my mom and one for me, and it cost me approximately $20 for both. This will alternate if you already have some of these items or you can find a better price. You can also compensate for the cost if you make additional ones and sell them. (If I were to sell the ones I made, the larger one would be $35 and the smaller one $30, simply b/c it was painted).

What you will need:

THRIFT STORE:
Vintage and/or carved wood frames (Bible’s For Missions $2.00 each in the wharehouse, ask clerk for assistance, prices may vary)
Vintage Door Knobs to match frame (you may need to repaint them to match)

WAL-MART:
Krylon Aerosol Spray Paint in Brilliant Gold (or another metallic of your choice) [the hardware cloth already comes in silver, so repaint it to match your frame as desired]
OPTIONAL: Hot Glue Gun (depending on the thickness of the base of your door knobs, they may not screw on all the way b/c of the tight space)

HARDWARE STORE:
Hardware Cloth (smallest roll was approx. $7.99)
1/8″ or 3mm Peg Board (smallest size and you can ask them to cut it down to desired sizes for you)

DOLLAR STORE:
Acrylic Paint
OPTIONAL: Sand Paper (My door knobs needed to be sanded down in order for the paint to adhere)
OPTIONAL: Hot glue for glue gun

PAINT STORE (that sells wallpaper and gives samples):
FREE samples of wallpaper (if you cannot find desired pattern or colour, you can choose a plain white with or without embossing and paint yourself)

GARAGE/ TOOL SHED:
Pliers
Snips
Hammer
Electric Hand Drill
Drill Bits (for Pre-Drilling the holes for your door knobs to prevent your frame from cracking)
Bits (to push screws into your frame for door knobs)
Square bit (to hammer staples into frame if they’re longer)
Industrial Staple Gun
Industrial Staples
Electric Saw or Chop Saw (to cut your boards to desired length if they don’t do it at the hardware store)
Measuring Tape
Work Gloves
OPTIONAL: Handy Assistant knowledgeable in construction (My brother Stephen helped me)

RUMMAGE:
Tape
Scissors
Ruler
Marker
Sponge (check your cleaning supplies)
Old Rag (or you can use an old sock and cut open)
Paint Palette or paper/plastic plate
Newspaper

Handi Mandi TV: DIY Jewellery – Macrame Styles: Micro-Macrame; Beading; Half-Knots

Here are some more Macrame styles I’m using to experiment the following:
*Micro-Macrame: using fine small cord (and equally small beads)
** Beading (on the center or outside strings)
***Half-Knots or half a square macrame knots (choose one side to knot to determine how it twists like a DNA strand)

Get the ball rolling enough and it may lead somewhere . . . (note to self: make sure to use steering, lol)

Handi Mandi TV – DIY Jewellery: Cotton Twill & Hex Nuts (How-To & Time Lapse)

Summer DIY jewellery has such a fresh look to it, and you appreciate it that much more because it was made with your own two hands. Get ready for back-to-school beautiful fashion jewellery. This week we’re braiding a bracelet with hex nuts. Zinc is pretty standard, I have get to find any ‘gold’ looking ones yet, but you could always paint them with nail polish to add some colour if you so choose.

If you like what you see or you have suggestions for what you would like to see next, please feel free to leaver you comments or requests below. I would love to hear from you all.
