Hello all and happy Monday! Today I’m teaming up with The Quarterly Collab ladies for another great compilation of fun DIY’s! Our theme? Jewelry! Let me first start by saying I am NOT a jewelry maker, nor do I pretend to be. But I put my best foot forward and looked at this as a fun opportunity to branch into this whole other area of crafting! I had a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy what I came up with!
What you will need:
Wood (I used a combination of pine, walnut and oak)
Table saw or scroll saw
Wood wiping stain
Gold chain (any length)
What to do:
1. Gather your supplies 2. With a pencil, measure your triangles (you can choose how big or small) 3. Using the table saw, cut out six wood triangles 4. Sand your triangles smooth 5. With your drill press, create a hole depending on the size of your chain 6. I created holes at the top (point) and bottom (flat end) of the triangle so they would all hang differently on the chain 7. Stain your triangles and wipe off excess with a rag 8. Take a fine sander and sand one last time to give it a nice glossy finish! Enjoy!
I love how this piece turned out! It’s chunky and definitely makes a statement! At first, I wanted to paint a few triangles some fun colors to pop, but I loved how the stain brought out all the different patterns in each triangle. Of course, I love how the natural wood plays with the gold metal. It’s something I can wear with anything and everything!
