DIY Satin Jeweled Headband Tutorial from Trinkets in Bloom here. I am a huge fan of the style of the 1920s and own a French made beaded dress from that period (huge peacock feather design for top then flipped for the bottom covered totally with pearl and glass beads), so I absolutely love this idea - especially as I would wear it to a party with the headband pulled forward over my forehead. With the movie The Great Gatsby coming out, I hope there will be a lot of 1920s inspired jewelry and fashion in the days to come.
DIY Lace Choker Tutorial from Urban Threads here. I’ve written about Urban Threads before. They have cool inexpensive embroidery designs you can buy for hand or machine embroidery and stock art. But if you don’t have an expensive embroidery machine just go buy a piece of Battenburg lace from your fabric store or online (it’s often in the bridal section).
DIY Home Depot Metal Grate Jewelry Inspiration from Pinafores & Pinwheels here.
