Some Random Fun Jewelry

So again this week's blog is a real simple one. We're really weird and nerdy and made some silly jewelry. And now on to the stuffs! 

So I've been searching EVERYWHERE for a mustache necklace and I still haven't found the magical store people are getting them from! I finally gave up and decided to make my own and this is it! My own beautiful fancy mustache necklace!!! 

This was inspired by Groucho Marx glasses but I forgot the eyebrows! The other earring is one of those windup chattering teeth toys.

And these are just because we're artists! Making a tube of paint is hard! It took us a few tries but we eventually got it.

If any of you want to make your own jewelry, we basically use the same process for making charms and magnets just on a much smaller scale. You'll need to buy things like chain and earring hooks or studs and some jewelry pliers. Once you have all that you'll be set to make your own fun jewelry! 

So that's all for this week folks! We have some fun Halloween things coming up for October! ♥

Football Earrings

Summer is finally winding down and my favorite season is approaching. Fall means the start of the holidays and of course FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!! So Ai and I have been obsessed with making earrings lately and decided we needed to make earrings dedicated to our favorite football teams: the Vikings and the Cowboys! (No we are not from Minnesota or Dallas. We aren't really from anywhere since we grew up as military brats. Our dads just picked teams long before we were born and have been loyal ever since and so have we.) 

 Ai's team is the Vikings! 

My team is the Cowboys! 

Sorry this week's post is pretty short. We're saving all of our good stuff for the upcoming months, so expect a lot of holiday themed things for the rest of the year! ♥  

*****P.S. Since people keep asking, we're working our way up to hopefully start selling things by the end of the year. However we absolutely will not be selling things with licensed characters, graphics, etc. It is just plain wrong! And yes we know people love to buy fanart type things, but again it's wrong and illegal! So no, we won't be able to make you your favorite football team or Harry Potter magnets,etc. *****

Cupcake Earrings

So continuing on our quest to make our own accessories, Ai has made earrings! The earrings were just a combination of the things we've already been doing. They're made of bowsclay charms, chains, earring hooks and studs. They ended up super cute! So now on to the earrings. 

Dangly cupcake earrings! 

We really like earrings that match but aren't exactly the same. 

The cupcake ribbons makes another appearance.

So that's all for this week folks! You can look forward to seeing more jewelry in the future! ♥

Hair Bow Headbands

So Ai and I have noticed that bows seem to be trendy at the moment. We've seen them everywhere and we're totally in love with them. So we set out to make our own and put a twist to them. We decided in order to make them different we'd stick polymer clay charms in them! Thankfully, this project went really smoothly for us (minus a few burns from the hot glue >_<). 

We didn't do anything fancy to make these. We just bought some headbands, tons of ribbon, and hot glue and went to work. So now on to the headbands! 

We've had this cupcake ribbon sitting around forever and couldn't think of what to make with it and finally this idea hit us.
