Crafty Ribbons Challenge 37 Love/Romance/Anniversary

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my DT project for our Love/Romance/Anniversary challenge at Crafty Ribbons. I chose to make a gift for someone loved-lets face it all us ladies like a gift of jewellery! :-) I used Tri Stripe Ribbon in Cypress found in the Crafty Ribbons store here. I chose this ribbon because when I weaved it through my chain (from a necklace I bought in a charity shop and took apart!) you would get flashes of the different colours which adds interest :-) A simple project but I think it looks really effective and I would be happy to receive it! What do you think?

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Come and Get it Challenges: Tie a Ribbon round it!
Inspire Me Fridays: Anything Goes
Divas By Design: Make it Girly
Ladybug Crafts: Anything But a Card

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
