I like two kinds of jewelry: vintage jewelry and handmade jewelry. Most of my jewelry comes from antique or thrift stores, but I'm always on the lookout for pieces I could make myself. There's just something about a unique piece of jewelry that makes me so very happy. :) I like knowing that what I'm wearing is different and that nobody else is going to be wearing the same thing.
I've been wanting to make some sort of embroidered jewelry piece for quite some time now. When I found these wood pendants on Etsy, I knew that they were exactly what I had been looking for. I love the combination of the wood with the fabric! So I ordered a pendant and anxiously awaited its arrival!
HEXAGON PENDANT NECKLACE
- wooden hexagon pendant from Beadeux
- fabric of choice (you only need about three inches of fabric for this so scraps work really well)
- embroidery floss
- glue (I used a bottle of spray glue, but I'm sure wood glue or craft glue would work also)
- jewelry making supplies: chain, rings, and clasps (or you could be lazy like me and just take apart an old necklace!)
All I had to do to make the necklace, was cut out a piece of fabric the size of the pendant, embroider a flower, and then glue the pieces together. I decided to be super lazy and steal the chain from a necklace I already owned. I had an old necklace that I think I wore once, so I stole the chain from it to use for the pendant.
That's it! Ten minutes later I had a wonderful piece of embroidered jewelry all ready to go. I can't wait to wear it!
