DIY Accessories Overload!

Thursday, April 05, 2012

There are times when you are up all night trying to think of doing something productive when sleep doesn’t come to you. So welcome aboard matey! We’re on the same ship. As a result, I came up with this post. Check it out:


I was scanning through pages of old teen magazines at home when I came across an article with the header “Darling DIY Charms”, the article is obviously about easy steps to creating your very own accessories. This made me think of one thing: I’ve been doing that for quite some time when I stopped due to my responsibilities at work. Believe it or not, I have first-hand knowledge on creating my own style of necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Well, it’s not like Algorithm or any difficult subject for that matter, it’s almost a breeze (well, it helps that you don’t have shaky hands and it doesn’t hurt to have 20/20 vision either).

Sofisticada Accessories
Name of my Accessory Line :p
I stopped creating accessories November of last year. I started learning when I was a sophomore in high school. My mom taught me the drill and pretty soon I was doing it all by myself already. I even sold some to my classmates who were into accessories. But then as I progressed into high school, I began to stray since I was technically too busy with studies (RSHS is tough ya know!). Back when I was still working with ABS-CBN, we had a segment which featured DIY Accessories and this awakened the passion in me again. Let me share some photos of some of the accessories I created:
Cupid'd Delight (Think ..PINK!)

As you can see, my accessories are largely composed of colorful beads and gemstones. Basically, you’ll need some metal locks, dividers and some strings to hold them all together. I got my materials from a local store where they sell all the materials at affordable prices. I even bought an organizer with little compartments for the tiny beads and other tiny materials (yes, some beads are the size of a sesame seed so it helps that you have 20/20 vision).

I make sets color-coordinated. Hehe :) This set's called Ocean Bliss.
 My accessory line was called Sofisticada and I started to sell some to my friends and acquaintances but since I have to do all the orders myself (and balancing my full-time job at that!) I just had to take a breather!

I still have some materials left though for accessory-making. Tell you what, check back next week for some easy tutorial and tips on how to make accessories! Would you like that? And maybe a giveaway would do well too. :) Leave a comment, dolls, it never fails to make me smile like this ^________^  

PS: Check back on April 09, 2012 for a very SPECIAL announcement! :))
