Reblogging an old DIY that I published 4 years ago. Having changed blogs and such, I’m finally giving my DIYs a permanent home 🙂
Also excuse the less-than-perfect pictures since my photography skills were pretty minimal 4 years ago.
This was a DIY to revamp old jewelry that you’re bored of or rusted jewelry you’d like to revive. All you need is the piece of jewelry:
& some coloured yarn. All you need to do is wrap it up the whole thing & it’ll look something like this;Easiest jewelry DIY ever!
It’s a wrap,

I bought a whole load of gemstones & crystals, and got a book on Minerals and Gemstones from my bestfriend’s lovely dad so I can study the uses and energy of each stone! So excited to learn about the new stones I got and create wearable magic with them!
Semi-precious stones and crystals bracelet:
- Red coral: energy flow and prosperity.
- Orange quartz: enhances natural intuitive abilities.
- Citrine quartz: physical, mental & emotional well-being.
- Jade: Health, wealth & longevity.
- Turquoise: Good fortune & peace.
- Garnet: success and luck in love.
- Clear quartz: patience & personal growth.
- Onyx: releases negative flow.
There’s so much more benefits and energy behind each stone, but this is the brief of it. Can’t wait to learn each and every single one.
The learning never stops,
My staple must wear jewelry for year 2014 was my armcandy of rudrakshas, Buddhas, hamsa hands, crystals and beads.
I collect stones, charms and beads from my travels and turn them into memories I can wear/carry with me on a daily. Constantly being asked if I sell them, I finally decided to do it;The response has been amazing & I can’t wait to explore all the options I can with the materials and styles I can come up with.
Calm like Buddha,

November is usually a busy month as I prepare for my Deeper Than Fashion Christmas collection & this year is no different. I’ve been preparing my usual packaging of DIY Rudolph paper bags and also decided I had to work on a do-it-yourself for Christmas inspired statement jewelry.
– A pack of decorative ornament balls (Daiso at RM5)
– Recycled string (Daiso at RM5)
– Elepant glue (optional)
Step One: Cut up the string in 6 pieces. I didn’t exactly measure it. Basically what I did was stretch my hands with the string in it to get similar lengths. Remember, these 6 strings will be tied in half!
Step Two: Loop it and tie a knot at the end (as shown in picture). Ensure that one of your ornaments can go through it.
Step Three: You’ll need to start braiding the string. Make sure you have a proper place to loop the string as it’ll make the braiding process so much easier! I used my computer table;
Step Four: Start braiding! In this example, I’ve only used two strings (easier to follow), however I used 6 for the final result, so please use 6 as well. Step Five: Measure the string around your neck to see where you’d like to start adding the ornaments. You can do a full ornament necklace, side one or a middle one like I did.
Once you’ve done that, start stringing in your ornaments as you braid. Remember: String ornament, overlap with two brands & then next ornament. This will ensure proper spacing (like mine!). You can however leave it to your creativity 🙂 Step Six: Once you are done and satisfied with how it looks, finish it off with an ornament & this time tie several knots to ensure it is really, really secure!
Add some glue to the knots for extra security!Step Seven: Cut off excess string and you are completely done!There you have it! A little something handmade to wear on Christmas that’s completely your own! You can add other ornaments like stars, beads, pearls and such. Let your creativity flow 🙂
Can’t wait to wear these for Christmas! 🙂
