This necklace is a very easy do it yourself that can be arranged in several different ways. First thing first you can make it with all your favorite colors, maybe choosing them to fit a particular dress of yours. it’s up to you!
What you will need is 2 packs of polymer clay of your favorite colors, I choose blue and white. Once you have chosen the color of the biggest bead you have to divide the clay in 3 pack, one with 5 strip and a half, one with half strip and one with 2 strips, then take the other polymer clay and take 2 strips and half strips. So you will have: for the biggest ball 5 strips and a half of white, the second bead has 2 strips of white and half of blue, the third one has 2 of blue and half of white. Mix them all together and form 3 beads.
Drill all beads carefully with a stick and put in oven at 120 degress for about 20 minutes. leave them in the oven until they are cold. To help me I put the stick up on 2 glasses, in this way your beads will hang up without damages.
Another suggestion: in case you choose, like me, the white color, do it as your first, otherwise you will risk to get it dirty with the other darker colors.
Once cold, I choose to put these beads on a very thin blue leather string and I think it came out fantastic. I made several others that you can find on my Etsy shop. This is a perfect present for your friends for Christmas! I’m sure they will love it!

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.

After spending my entire vacation in a soap bubble, which of course contained my couch, mountains of books and movies, sweet to no end and my adorable husband, I have to admit that it is very difficult to get back to reality. I can think of many interesting projects to be implemented in the coming weeks but you have to give me a bit of time … just enough to catch the right rhythm;-)
Dopo aver passato le mie intere vacanze in una bolla di sapone, che naturalmente conteneva il mio divano, montagne di libri e film, dolci a non finire ed il mio adorabile marito, devo ammettere che tornare alla realtà è alquanto difficile. Ho in mente molti progetti interessanti da realizzare nelle prossime settimane ma dovrete darmi un po di tempo… quel che basta per riprendere il giusto ritmo 😉
For this simple project you will need colored leather ribbon and pearls with holes in the middle. First, glue the two ribbons of different colors together and then pass in the pearl. Once cut the ribbon of the right diameter to fit your finger, just paste the last part. I wear two of them, in different colors, together and I find them really adorable!
Per questo semplice progetto vi servirà del nastro di pelle colorato e delle perle bucate al centro. Per prima cosa incollate i due nastri di colore diverso insieme e poi passateli nella perla. Una volta tagliato il nastro del diametro giusto misura per il vostro dito, basterà incollare la parte finale. Io ne indosso due diversi insieme e li trovo davvero adorabili!
