Hi! How was your weekend?
Hmm, I enjoyed sourcing materials for future works 🙂
Hey, thanks a lot for liking Tantu!
Let’s take a new topic today. How about accessory making? Exciting right? Then why to wait, let us start!
Costume Jewelry means jewellery made to match a costume. Today’s trend is costume jewellery. I often feel the costume jewellery available in the market is not that interesting. So, I started experimenting 🙂
Today I will introduce one of my experiments,
A Simple Funky Costume Jewellery of Safety Pins in Just 5 Minutes!
Materials I Used:
- Small safety pins dozen set 11
- Loose safety pins 13
- Jump rings 8 for earrings, 8 for neck piece
- Ear wires 2
- Adjustable tying cord 1
Colour: either golden or silver. Golden gives a rich traditional look. Silver gives a modern touch.
Nose pliers for opening and fixing jump rings and ear wires
I started with neck piece.
I placed 5 safety-pin sets side by side. I Kept 1 safety-pin each at 2 ends. I placed the ends of tying cord at each end. Later, I placed jump rings, wherever I needed them as connectors (picture).
I connected them together with jump rings. Nose pliers can be used to fix jump rings into place. That’s all! Neck piece is ready!
I took 3 safety-pin sets. I arranged them in triangle form. I placed 1 safety-pin and 1 jump ring alternatively, between each set.
I connected them (2 pin sets + 1 single pin at 3 corners) with jump rings as shown (pic 2). Then I took a jump ring, added an ear wire (pic 2). I lifted those 3 single pins at their free ends. And I connected them together with the jump ring (that is connected to ear wire) (pic 3). One earring is ready! Similarly, I made the second earring.
Final look is as you can see 🙂
Now, check the time, we have done it within 5 minutes 🙂
How do you feel about this 5 minutes jewelry? I am waiting for your replies!
Well, we can develop a number of designs from the same base idea. I have tried out a few more designs… I will upload the snaps tomorrow.
Bye until the next post!
