DIY Pearl Ribbon Necklaces & A New Chan Luu Inspired Bracelet

Work has been nuts lately with me finishing at around 8 every night so I'm now incredibly behind in the blogging world :(

To my favorite bloggers - I haven't forgotten you and am looking forward to getting caught up over the next few days!  Please excuse my lack of comments.

To my readers - I have a special treat for you!  I'm putting together a giveaway to celebrate 100 followers (thank you so much!  I can't tell you how much it means to me that any one would want to read my little corner of the internet!) and should have this up early next week.  In about a month, I'll also have a brand new feature added to the blog so stay tuned!

So in the meantime, just wanted to show you a few jewelry DIY projects I've done over the last month.

This was created for a dear friend.  One of her favorite colors is blue and I was inspired by a bit of beach theme (blue for water and soft browns for sand).

This one is just a slight variation of the above with a warm gold color theme.

And finally a new Chan Luu Inspired Leather Wrap Bracelet.  Here I used copper colored faceted crystals (about 4mm), 1 mm metallic brown leather cord, and a coconut button.  Want to make your own?  Check out my video tutorial HERE.

Hope everyone has a fabulous President's Day weekend!  Anyone going shopping?

DIY Plaid Peter Pan Collar Blouse + OOTD

I saw this beautiful, sheer plaid fabric at my local Hancock Fabrics store and instantly thought of making it into a blouse of some sort.  I started with a Peter Pan collar + flutter sleeves and then couldn't help myself - I had to add a bow-front - I just love them so much!  You can also tie it into a knot for more of a necktie look.

I love that this is kind of a masculine plaid color scheme made into something frilly and feminine :)

 Close-up of details:

Here's how I would wear it:
Top: DIY, Plaid Peter Pan Collar + Flutter Sleeve Blouse 
Blazer: Banana Republic, Black, Sz 2
Belt: Banana Republic, Black/Brown Snake Print
Pants: Old Navy Skinny Ankle Zip, Khaki, Sz 2
Boots: Born, Black Leather

How would you wear something like this?
