work in progress




I have a new found respect for Arielle de Pinto, because after four hours of interlacing three kinds of chains, brown suede and cotton cord, I had the meanest headache. But it was all worth it because I love how it turned out! Before this, the only other jewelry I had made was a few simple body chains. Challenging myself to make something with my hands, by intertwining and mixing different materials on whim, was exciting. Now, I just need to figure out how to finish all the loose ends (chains, suede and cotton cord are all still attached, haha) and where to get cheaper supplies (I got mine on Etsy). Any suggestions?

Wow that looks like a lot of hard work and it definitely paid off!

That's so strange, I just posted about Arielle de Pinto a few days ago. But yes, her stuff is hardcore. But what your making looks equally so! :) As for supplies, the only place I know would be Ebay and Etsy. :/

And yes, I did see that Gaga kermit outfit. That is way too ridiculous for me lol.

Get a jump ring and attach it at the end. As for the suede & cords, hot glue gun them together around the jump ring? You're going to need a massive one from what I can see. It looks great!

That's a fun DIY... But yes, arielle de pinto is a clever designer. Those chains are so tiny!
