Oh, wait, look over there! It's sparkly, cute, beady things!
For those of you who are still listening at this point, recently I decided that I wanted to try my hand at making custom beaded jewelry for the Kawaii Machine shop.
In general, I tend to learn as I go. If I hit a snag, I'll search through a tutorial (or six) to figure out the process. I had no idea what I was doing, but I had handfuls of this multicolored sparkly stuff and knew I wanted to do something.
|Watercolor Butterfly Beaded Bracelet, $8|
|Pearl and Roses Beaded Bracelet, $8|
The next type I tried turned out to be much easier on my hands, and better for people who'd rather not worry about specific sizing.
|Pearl and Neon Stretch Bracelet, $4|
|Paint Splatter and Pearl Key Charm Bracelet, $5|
In keeping with the theme of my shop, all of the new pieces are inspired by colors and themes found in both Fairy Kei and Pastel Goth fashions. I'm always on the lookout for new beads and ideas, so keep an eye on the shop for new items!
