Sailor button earrings from Kawaiicph sweater from Petit Bateau

I bought some vintage buttons in a second hand store and made some jewellery from them. It is very easy to make these earrings:

First you cut of the button part with a diagonal cutter. The backside needs to be flat.

Then you glue on the earring studs, so simple, I gave them a lacquer coating afterwards so they are shiny and more durable.

I love the naive and romtantic graphics you find in old-school tattoos.

Bikini from my vintage pin-up magazine goes nicely with the sailor style, would love one like it…

Turning used Lego parts into grown-up toys. These ear studs are very small.

Lego means “I assemble / put together” in Latin and this toy continues to surprise in its ability to generate new ideas in the people “Lego-ing”. Even grown-ups find themselves engulfed in this game, and with a 4 year old in the house I have a perfect excuse to play..

It really requires patience to drill holes in hard plastic with a heated needle, so I took a break after doing one pink “diamond” Lego earring…

Fu manchu beard and Frankenstein Lego men earrings, definitely an icebreaker at any party!

I started making jewellery from vintage Lego parts a long time ago but haven´t showed them here yet, so here they are. Every time I wear them they generate nostalgic memories from people I meet.

Number 4 Coin Earrings

Number 5 Star Stud Earrings

The jewellery is handmade and the earrings are sterling silver. This is how it´s made:

First I warm up the cernit clay with my hands, then I cut out the clay into the shapes I want. Remember to make holes with a needle before you bake them. The clay is baked 30 min. in the oven, afterwards they are given 2 layers of lacquer coating. The clay is glued to the jewellery parts with uhu superglue.

Which is your favourite jewellery? Leave a comment below and you could be the winner ☆

I read the supercute blog by Sara from Minimega. She creates beautiful paper graphics such as postcards, posters etc. and shares her creative ideas on her blog. One of her posts is with jewellery made with cernit clay and I had to try this for myself. I really like these molds I bought on etsy. It is easy to use the cernit clay, my only problem is when I glue the pieces on to the jewellery parts. Especially the earring studs don´t seem to stick. I have tried with reular jewellery glue and with a glue gun. Maybe you can help me?

I solved the glue problem with superglue instead of jewellery glue. The neon flower ring i my favourite. I have more colours in cernit clay and will try some og the others, the bow is gold but looks more cookie coloured…The bright neon colors turn out nicely. After they have baked and are cold, I have given them a glossy lacquer coating.

After many failures I finally learned how to make the origami paper crane and here is the result. I have borrowed books about origami at the library but I still think the best way to learn paperfolding is by video tutorials where you can repeat and watch again. Inspired by blogger Brinja ´s miniature creations and Origami Jewellery I have decided to try to make the cranes in tiny scale for earrings. You can see the result at the end of this post!

I just wanted to show my new jewellery box from NoMess which is perfect for tiny jewellery parts.

The small colored acryllic boxes from NoMess are really cute, and a great idea for a jewellery gift box. And below are some origami lillies I made, click here for instructions.

And this is how the tiny cranes turned out: They will need two varnish glue coatings and they will be ready for earhooks!

And tadaa! Tell me what you think.
