5 Minutes Jewelry

Namaste Dear Tantu enthusiast!

We have moved to our own domain. Please read this article in the new URL here: 5 Minutes Jewelry. Thank you!

Hi! How was your weekend?

Hmm, I enjoyed sourcing materials for future works 🙂

Hey, thanks a lot for liking Tantu!

Let’s take a new topic today. How about accessory making? Exciting right? Then why to wait, let us start!

Costume Jewellery

Costume Jewelry means jewellery made to match a costume. Today’s trend is costume jewellery. I often feel the costume jewellery available in the market is not that interesting. So, I started experimenting 🙂

Today I will introduce one of my experiments,

A Simple Funky Costume Jewellery of Safety Pins in Just 5 Minutes!

Materials I Used:

  • Small safety pins dozen set 11
  • Loose safety pins                  13
  • Jump rings                             8 for earrings, 8 for neck piece
  • Ear wires                                2
  • Adjustable tying cord           1

Colour: either golden or silver. Golden gives a rich traditional look.  Silver gives a modern touch.

Tools Required:

Nose pliers for opening and fixing jump rings and ear wires

1 T3 Requirements

I started with neck piece.

I placed 5 safety-pin sets side by side. I Kept 1 safety-pin each at 2 ends. I placed the ends of tying cord at each end.  Later, I placed jump rings, wherever I needed them as connectors (picture).

2 T3 Neck piece 2

I connected them together with jump rings. Nose pliers can be used to fix jump rings into place.  That’s all! Neck piece is ready!

3 T3 neck piece 3a

Earring Making:

I took 3 safety-pin sets. I arranged them in triangle form. I placed 1 safety-pin and 1 jump ring alternatively, between each set.

4 T3 Ear ring 1

I connected them (2 pin sets + 1 single pin at 3 corners) with jump rings as shown (pic 2). Then I took a jump ring, added an ear wire (pic 2). I lifted those 3 single pins at their free ends. And I connected  them together with the jump ring (that is connected to ear wire) (pic 3). One earring is ready! Similarly, I made the second earring.

Final look is as you can see 🙂

Now, check the time, we have done it within 5 minutes 🙂

How do you feel about this 5 minutes jewelry? I am waiting for your replies!

Well, we can develop a number of designs from the same base idea. I have tried out a few more designs… I will upload the snaps tomorrow.

    Hey ladies,
    Do you remember the high school days? Sindhu used to be the most creative person in the class always and the favorite of drawing teacher. Be it the pencil sketch, painting, crafts whatever it is!
    Good going Sindhu, and keep on doing nice stuffs.

  7. Sindhu says:

    Thank you so much dear 🙂 Ha haa, I was the only (I guess so) student in our class to take drawing class very seriously, more than any other subjects 🙂 I used to have lots of doubts to clarify only in drawing subject 😀 How good those days were, Shwetha! I am grateful to Shrimathi Kalavathi, our drawing teacher, who guided me to hold pencil to sketch 🙂
