DIY Paper Beads you can make at home!

The Mobius Knot

These earrings look complicated, but they are beautifully simple!

Hello Crafters!

This week we are taking a break from art journaling to bring you a jewellery project!

Don’t worry, not all chainmaille is heavy burdensome armour! Chainmaille can be and is very beautiful!

That is until last week.

I decided to make some jewellery just for fun and for some reason I pulled out the eye pins. I have since made so many bracelets and necklaces with eye pins that I have actually had to restock!
