I’m in London at the moment doing a quick photoshoot, and will be back in Warsaw by Tuesday. Apologies to the Warsaw-love post right below, but it’s fantastic to be back; I guess it really takes to be away from a place to truly appreciate it. Owh goodness, I’m so spoiled.

Anyway I thought I’d post how my geometric necklace turned out  – tutorial here by Dnyce. I wanted the necklace to be somewhat asymmetric, but being a n00b and all, didn’t realise that it’s not that simple in jewellery architecture, so had to improvise with chains… Huge respect to Dnyce and those others savvy for jewellery construction; it surprisingly requires a lot of logic and craftsmanship, neither of which I posess in great dosage.

  19. i’ve always wanted to make my own jewelry but im not too sure where to get the stuff to construct my own

  21. So digging all these DIYs floating around the blogosphere. I wish I had the patience and the nimble fingers to make this necklace. It’s awesome.

  22. I like the little modification you did with the chains in the geometric shape. I think it would be so cool to push this even furthur, and insert even more organic hanging shapes in between the geometry, sort of like visual paradox

    As usual, your DIY’s are the best documented and visually nice to look at.

  23. THe necklace rocks, you did a pretty neat job!

    Hello was wondering where you bought and what kind of materials that you used? I kind of would like to make one of these necklaces.

    London has a few upsides (most of them related to le girlfriend), but other than that, it stinks. It’s overpopulated, people there are rude, almost everyone is a headlong-rushing self-possessed snob. Knife crime on the rise, dirt everywhere, noise, crappy phone-music, late buses and no trams.. ehhh..

    I actually really like the necklace (or w/e that is) that you’re making.
    Credits to me for displaying continuous endurance and patience in the weirdo-chain-and-other-crappers (like buttons and pins and.. girly stuff) store.

    Also, it’s not n00b, but n()()b. Get your pro-gamer grammar right.

    Always whining,
    ~le boyfriend

  26. I am still liking what you have done with this.

    Love Grace.

  27. Cutest, jestem pani, wiec musi byc ‘La Girlfriend’ you n()()b.
    Thank you for having endurance and patience and being a good boyfriend <3

  28. You should check Dnyce’s tutorial on this, it’s her DIY so she has the original guidelines :) I personally bought mine in a craft/bead store.

  29. As the Koreans like to say, Above the man who walks, there’s always a man who flies (yuh, so doesn’t make sense but you get it) I think you’re the one that’s always going to fly, you genius. I never thught of that, organic hanging would be fantastic, what an idea… clearly you need to be the one performing that magic though.

  30. I saw! I think I don’t really like them though, ended up buying those tan wedges…yeh I’m predictable like that.

  31. That looks pretty cool!however i dont know if i could make i

  32. nice job! i like….

  33. Danielle

    If you live in the States, you can find jewelry-making stuff at Michael’s :)

  43. Hi there!

    I’m currently putting together Issue #016 of N.E.E.T., a non-profit Online Fashion + Design Magazine, with the emphasis all on grassroots creativity and fashion. N.E.E.T. showcases independent designers, shops and artists from all over the world.

    In every issue, we have a DIY tutorial – in past issues, we’ve had ruffle skirts by Kingdom of Style, crafty restyled shoes by Heidi Seeker, and origami paper bracelets by Fashion is Spinach. I’ve been looking for a new tutorial for the September issue of N.E.E.T., and I had a look at your fabulous blog today. I came across the beaded tights tutorial (http://www.parkandcube.com/?p=1543#comments) – it’s amazing!

    I think it would be great for our new issue, if I could turn it into a tutorial, utilising your photos and text. Is this something that would interest you? N.E.E.T. is a not-for-profit publication so no compensation can be given, but full credit would be given to you, with links to your blog, of course!

    Looking forward to hearing from you, please email me at: thefashionmagazine@gmail.com

    I’m just a beginner. Where do I get all the rings etc to make it?

  67. Your site is pretty inspiring!
    Where do you buy your jewelry bits and bobs? I looked at a few stores but as a complete newbee to making jewelry, I don’t want to overspend as the risk of me screwing up is high!
