Expand Your Design Horizons
A new year is always so full of hope and promise! We love planning the new projects we’re going to tackle or the new skills we want to learn. We’ve put together a collection of links and projects that hopefully inspire you to try something new this year!
- Pantone always provides a ton of inspiration with their colours of the year. We’ve used them as a jumping off point for a Pretty Palettes challenge. Take a look – maybe you’ll join us?
- Have you mastered stretch bracelets and are ready to try your hand at some different jewelry pieces? We have a number of “set” tutorials that show you how to make a bracelet, earrings and a necklace in the same style. Check out the Gleam Boho DIY Jewelry Set, featuring pearls and a clever wrapping technique, or the Scarlet DIY Jewelry Set that includes fun bangle bracelets!
- The new year isn’t just a time for new resolutions, but it can also be a time of tidying up the old. Take a look at your stash – do you have a lot of beads that have just one or two matches? Check out Design on a Dime :: Leftover Layering Necklaces – making a few of these is a good way to use up some of those leftover beads!
