DIY Independence Day Pendant DIY Independence Day Pendant(12)

Month of August is very special for us Pakistanis, because it’s the month of independence, 14th August 1947 was the day when we got freedom. Too much struggle, efforts, difficult situations around but the whole Nation is working hard with unity for the peace and prosperity of our dear country.. So Happy 67 years my dear Land.. Stay awesome!!

As I am in love with Jewelry & Accessory things, So I like making these too, I made this pendant today with Patriotic theme, Every year I make independence day crafts &  mostly there is any accessory. So this year again I made some accessory thing.. a pendant with the Pakistani Flag theme, Green and White..

Have a look what I have done.. Enjoy the DIY..

I made a pendant with Mod Melts, As you know I received Mod melts from Mod Podge Rocks last month, So I try this simple and easy DIY. see the steps..

I am under attack of CHEVRON these days, Love it simply, I work with Chevron stencil last month, today again I select the chevron design for this mod melts molds.

1-Melt the glue and fill the mold, 2-eject it from mold and trim the extra sides. be careful while working with. and be sure to remember my Craft Fail as well..

I decide to make earrings with these but later I realize that it will not be a cool idea to make some ear accessory again, I have made a stud earrings in 2012 as independence day craft.. So I decide to make a pendant this time!! I fix  the jump ring and chain in it & its DONE but if you want an earring, you can also try it..

Here is the size of the pendant with my whoops long nails..haha

I make the border of pendant with white, I use white acrylic paints mixed it with silver glitter. because Pakistani flag is having white border..

My sketchbook was near so I thought to get this painting as my model of this pendant.. isn’t it fine..??

There we go.. Its Done.. simple, easy and cute.. and Patriotic as well.. So wish you all a very happy Independence day. and in my National Language Urdu, I will be greeting by saying = Jashan-e-Azadi Mubarak..

Here are my other easy and pretty independence day crafts, have a look at these and enjoy my tutorials.I hope you will like to create something like this.

Lots of well wishes and prayers for the peace & prosperity of my homeland, my country..my Pakistan..oh yeah one more thing I have to mention before leaving the page..Last night we enjoy the great fireworks & that was amazing!!

Have a great day Friends, Happy independence day! stay productive and passionate for the peace & prosperity of Pakistan!

Thanks,

A very Patriotic Khadija ~

Clay Beads Earrings Clay Beads Earrings(23)

Working with clay/dough is fun, although its not an easy job but if you are interested in creating things with clay then its not much difficult for you. give it a try any day! I made some clay beads & then use those in making of some earrings.Here Today I am sharing a pair of clay Neon earrings..

I made the dough first & then mix the color in it, & shape those in squares & spheres shape..

I tried to create some marble effects with pink & white but failed to mix these well or may be the color quantity is not well in the dough..there is a very rough marble design showing above..but I will be painting these now.

This is how I made the hole in the beads,after giving shape to the beads, give it some time until they get dry a little, then I make the hole with needle..

Don’t they look like chewing gum?? haha..well these are many..for making different things.. you can share your ideas with me..

I made all these above earrings for sale purpose & I have sold some & also gifted some to my friends as well.. a handmade gift is always nice, isn’t it?

Here it is the other version with green pearl & same square clay beads..

Here it is another clay earring made by me. bright yellow & green with modpodge shine like spring… spring is now totally showering its colors upon us & I wish every season bring lots of happiness to all of you,today..tomorrow & in future too.. Have a great weekend ..

So here is the look at my today’s fun creation..& its making is also not a difficult job..Really!

In a previous post, I share some quilling card arrangement ideas..There a flower was in a big size, so I thought to make a ring with. In Pakistan, Big metal rings are badly in fashion these days. I bought many rings & they look nice. anybody would like to see my artificial jewelry collection?? I have a BIG collection..let me know if you want to have a look..

anyways you will need to have.

Paper quilled shapes, plaid extreme glitter, rhinestones,earring backs. glue,

Simply make “S” shape and apply glitter, then fix stones, when it will get dry,you will fix the earring back pin later.

DIY Turquoise Earrings DIY Turquoise Earrings(74)

These days I am enjoying some experiments of making earrings..If you have read my previous post,you may remember why I am working on these so much :)Actually I have almost 300 pairs of earring hooks..aren’t they too many? they were available in one pack & I have to buy all..not a few from them..turquoise color is one of my favorite color I know many people like it !
So I am trying to make something cool !
Have a look at my effort…

I am learning how to take fine pics of any jewelry items..any suggestion?

You will need to have;
Earring Base & Hooks
Stones/rhinestones

-First I Cut a silver sheet in octagon shape for making these earring’s base. 
-Then I make holes for adding earring hooks with a needle
-Paste stones & rhinestones with any transparent glue(I use Mod podge sparkle)
-when it will get dry then you will need to pour a few drops of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
-You can apply some more coats but when it will be dry & transparent!

I make these late night & these were looking blurry & milky because of the mod podge DM but when I saw these in morning..the DM was totally dry & perfect..

I hope you will like the easy making of these earrings.give it a try & I hope you will be able to make something better then my creation..
Have a Great Weekend!

Lots Of Earring Hooks Lots Of Earring Hooks(18)

I was shopping with my brother at a local store,there I saw a packet of these earring hooks & I feel good to find these because I was searching these once last year. when I ask about their packet & quantity,I was shocked.because I have to buy the whole pack..big packet quantity was 1000 pairs of earring hooks & small pack quantity was 300 pairs..!
And,,as you know,I am just a moody jewelry maker,not a professional.So I just leave it & forget about it.I thought I don’t need so many of these because it will be a mess in my crafty drawers.and may be their color will get fade until I start making these.
But the very next day I was surprised to see the pack when my brother gave these to me as a crafty unusual gift..He said,”I bet you can easily make 300 pairs of earrings soon,so these are not too many for you”. Haha..my brother know me very well..
I am happy to have these hooks now, at least I can experiment many ideas!
and you know what..I have done some rough experiments, up to15 earrings are done & 4 have been snatched by my friends as well..really! I always hand over my handmade stuff to my friends happily
If you are following me on Instagram, you can see my daily fun creations on & off..I remember I share about 10 earrings there so you can check these rough efforts…
I think I will finish all 300 soon,as I am addicted but I need some beautiful beads & stuff like this for some fine jewelry making..I will be visiting market soon..
I hope you will not mind my future posts about making lots of earrings!would you like to see tutorials? let me know!
Have fun
~ Love
