twisted rainbow wire rings

this is a random post about my first attempt on the wire jewelry .I found this rainbow colored wire in a craft store a few months back, at that time i had no project in my mind in which i can use these beauties. A few days ago my elder daughter wanted me to make finger rings for her and for her school friends ........... this was a difficult wish :( as i am not very good in jewelery making! I had to see a lot of videos on You-tube for this purpose and learned some basic techniques from there and then i remembered my rainbow wires.......... i was so overwhelmed with joy :)

and this is the final result .......

The most difficult of the procedure was to find a perfect cylinder shape to roll the wire on to get the perfect size for the tiny fingers ,luckily a ballpoint pen served the purpose :)

rainbow colors were perfect for the beautiful angel hands :)

I am not totally satisfied with this attempt of mine but my daughters are really happy to own their new rings :) and so long as they serve the purpose i am happy too ........ now i should be worried about my own fingers i have to twist and turn the wires for at least 8 more times to get 8 more rings for the school friends of my elder one :)

lace brooch tutorial

Good day friends how,s life i am really sorry for such a delayed post ,today i wana share the tute of this cute little brooch with you ,i had a little scrappy piece of a very beautiful lace with me , it was so little that i could not use it on any clothing yet it was so beautiful that i didn't want to throw it away then this idea popped into my mind that lets make a brooch out of it and thats how i made it!...........

The things you will be needing
  • scrappy piece of lace
  • artificial flowers ( i am using the flowers i won in a blog candy by Theresa :) )
  • stamens
  • safety pin
  • transparent glue
fold your lace in a cress cross manner like a fan and then tie and sew in the middle with the help of the needle and thread .

now bring together the two open sides and sew or glue them together ( i am using needle and thread)do the same to the lower end too.

and you will end up making a round flower like shape ,

now comes the fun part cut off the stems from the roses and stick them to the center of the lace flower arrange and stick the the stamens and then glue the whole thing on the safety pin. I am using plastic pin which has a large plastic surface to accommodate hand made stuff .

Once the glue was dried i also stitched the lace with the pin for a more durable bond.

hope you like it ,by the way if you dont have the patience and time to make one and interested to buy it then click hear of details .
