Whimsical Spring DIY Inspiration

by Jess Lincoln March 02, 2020

~ Live Life in Full Bloom ~



Spring is almost here! It makes me happy to design with these sweet flowers and winged beauties. I'm excited to share some fun techniques with you to create a few of my projects inspired by our Whimsy collection~ SHOP sale items through 3/31/20 

Find links below for VIDEO TUTORIALS showing tips on how to create these focals and project materials, tools & supplies lists. Hope you enjoy and learn something new! Browse our entire Vintaj Hand Tools collection for all your jewelry making needs.

 

Interested in making these projects? Be sure to pick up one of our Limited Edition Whimsical Spring Bead Mixes which is blooming with a beautiful assortment of muted Spring hues. Featuring; African recycled glass, mother-of-pearl, fresh water pearl, pyrite, olive jade, yellow jade, fire-polished glass, and Chinese crystal. 

 

Making this cheerful choker is quick + easy. The mix of natural brass with sterling silver plated charms gives the design a fun pop of color. Our princess dragonfly fits perfectly over the pretty pink mother-of-pearl coins - you can find these in our limited edition Whimsy Wings Bead Mix.

*TIP: be sure when adding your charms to the chain that you attach them to links that are facing the same direction. I lay my chain flat on my work surface and start with the center piece then work up one side and then repeat on the other.

 My love for layering metals is showcased in this statement bracelet. I wanted to share a unique way to stack this gorgeous lunarfly + deco bee by creating bead links to form decorative connections and attachments in place of using glue.

This 14K Gold Honeycomb pendant is so versatile to design with! I knew I wanted to incorporate some of our NEW Patina colors into this design, and what better way then to accentuate our metallic Moonstone & Hematite patina colors than with a layer of ICE Resin.
