It’s a lazy Saturday morning so I’m only halfway through my first DIY of the day, which I thought I’d share with you. This week has been full of firsts and today I attempted chain weaving for the first time! For someone who’s been crafting as long as I have, it’s amazing how many firsts there are left for me. Think it’s really time for me to branch out! 🙂

So, what do you think of my attempt?


Personally, I like the bright colours. Neon is very on-trend! (Even if chain weave is not- it was hot a few years back!) Was debating between going for a simple finish with dangling crystals or really maxing it out with a big statement necklace 🙂 If I want to make something I would wear often, then statement is probably the way to go. I’ve noticed that my favourite pieces are HUGE 😛 (I’m not a small girl and dainty pieces make me look even bigger 🙁 It’s all in the framing!)

The funniest thing is, even though I’d never bead-woven before, I actually thought a friend, P, to do it last summer. We had many fun crafternoons, making jewellery and watching Korean drama shows. If you’ve not caught on to the Korean trend/ Hallyu wave, you really should.  Check out what she made. Amazing job for a first-time crafter, no?


OK better get back to finishing that piece now 🙂
