Really? I’m back! DIY laser cut earrings

Off
November 30th, 2015

A very long period has passed since my last post, but if you followed me you should probably know that in the last two years I’ve made the biggest and hardest diy project I’ve ever did, my beautiful son Giorgio. I thought that I would have time and energy for continuing my work here, but let’s face it, growing a child is a full time job 🙂 Now that he is one year old I have a little bit more time so here I am, with a new tutorial. In case you didn’t notice I’ve changed the name of my blog, not to start a brand new one but simply because during first months of motherhood I completely forgot about renewing the domain so I lost it 🙁 The tutaorial is very very simple, I fall in love with these earrings some time ago and now that it is almost Christmas I thought they could be a perfect gift for my friends.

The hardest part of this tutorial is not about the procedure but about the materials, it was very hard for me to find these wood laser earrings, here the link on Etsy to buy them, so it would be easier for you. Another difficult part is to find a very sticky scotch, you will need it to made a good work. Once you have all these and acrylic paint you are already to go, just use the scotch for making your patterns. These are the ones I choose. All these procedure is quite easy but requires a very secure hand 🙂

So here is the procedure in details:
1) Choose a pattern and keep it in mind, try to enhance all sections you want to paint and use the scotch to mark them, probably you will need to do it in more than one step.
2) Paint the section entirely, if you need more hands of paint you will need to wait.
3) Remove the scotch, and proceed to the next section, mark it with scotch and paint it.
4) Let everything dry and then finish the work with transparent painting. That’s it!

Triangles {Diy necklace}

February 21st, 2014

To make this necklace you will need a thin gold chain and a gold-plated 0.8mm wire. First of all cut the chain to the right length for your neck, cut few pieces of gold thread from 3 to 7cm. Fold these pieces in half and roll every ends. Wedge them in the necklace, without an order and in a non-symmetrical way. To clsoe the necklace I’ve used a simple clasp. If you like you can still enrich the necklace using some charms but I liked it in this simple way.

Per fare questa collana avrete bisogno di una catena dorata sottile e di un filo dorato 0.8mm. Una volta tagliata la catena per una lunghezza giusta per il vostro collo, tagliate dei pezzetti di filo dorato dai 3 ai 7cm. Piegate questi pezzetti a metà e arrotolate le estremità. Fatto questo incastrateli nella collana, senza un ordine e accavallati in modo non simmetrico. Io ho chiuso con un semplice moschettone. Potete ancora arricchire la collana aggiungendo dei charms ma a me piaceva semplice in questo modo.

Dior pearls inspired earrings {DIY project}

January 13th, 2014

I love them,I would wear them every day, I find them ultra chic, and I could not resist without doing that by myself? Dior presents a gorgeous earring that is also really easy to realize.

Le adoro, le indosserei ogni giorno, le trovo ultra chic, e potevo non farmele? Dior propone un orecchino a mio avviso stupendo e davvero facile da realizzare.

I used a pair of pearl earrings already ready, 2 large beads with the hole that holds the closing of earrings and two more small pearls.

Io ho utilizzato un paio di orecchini di perle già pronto, 2 perle grandi con il buco in grado di contenere la chiusura degli orecchini e due perle più piccole.

Achieve them is really simple, you just fill the hole of the large pearl with hot glue and then, before it firms up enter from one side the close of the pearl earring and on the other side the other small pearl. Done! The large pearl is becomes the closing of earrings!

Realizzarle è davvero semplice, vi basterà riempire il buco dell perla grande con della colla a caldo e poi, prima che solidifichi inserire da un lato, la chiusura dell’orecchino e dall’altro la perla piccola. Fatto! La perla grande è diventa la chiusura degli orecchini!
