Yes, it seems I have too much free time on my hands, I need to find another hobby such as jewellery! No seriously, the reason I made these is that I love earrings, I have loads of them and I want have many more. I had my ears pierced rather late (I was 22, my father had always said no) but I think I’ve made up for all this time without earrings by now.
When I went to the CSF fair in November with my friend Catherine, there were many booths selling jewellery items and how can you not be tempted to try some. In one of those booths, I don’t remember which, I picked up a little card of this online blog and shop: “Mon bijou facile” (you can translate it as ‘my easy jewel’). The blog offers tutorials for easy necklaces, bracelets and earrings and they sell everything in the little online shop. What’s not to love?! As I’m not particularly creative, I copied the tutorials with the same exact colours 🙂 So far I’ve made one bracelet, one necklace and 4 pairs of earrings. And I’m going to make many more.
As for overdiversification, it’s not getting any better: after seeing this photo on Instagram, I had to order a Constellation Quilt Kit by Haptic Lab. If you don’t know them already, go and see their work, it’s amazing! And no, I’ve never made a quilt, but I can always learn, no 😉 ?
