DIY necklace in 3 easy steps/ uradi sam ogrlica u tri lagana koraka

Happy Sunday! Today's post won't be very long as I'm going to show you one necklace that I've made recently and already gave it away. I took this pics in a hurry (they're not very interesting and arty I'm afraid). Anyway, I'll try to make it a habit to document my creations before they end up as gifts. 

If you want to try this DIY yourself, you will need: faux leather, some kind of decoration (I've bought these shiny plastic ones in store where they sell sewing equipment and I'm sure they're not hard to find wherever you may live) and a bit of satin cord. 

step no.1
-cut out as much faux leather as you will need
step no.2
-sew the decoration of  your choice (beads, stones, crystals- whatever)
step no.3 
-sew the satin cord making sure it is the right length for your neck....and it's really as easy as that!

* I think it's only fair that I warm you that you might experience pain or some kind of discomfort in your arms if you do this frequently. Sewing by hand is never easy and it's harder when it comes to leather (and even faux leather thought this one is obviously softer). That's why sometimes special tools are needed to work with leather (which I never managed to get my hands on but that's another subject.) So, don't say I didn't warn you;)

Ugodna nedjelja! Današnji post neće biti jako dug, samo ću vam pokazati jednu oglicu koju sam nedavno izradila i već je uspjela udomiti:) Na brzinu sam je uslikala (pa eto fotografije i nisu nešto zanimljive ni umjetnične) i odsada svakako ću nastojati dokumentirati svoje radove prije nego što završe kao pokloni. 

Ukoliko vi želite isprobati ovaj uradi sam projekt, trebati će vam : eko koža, neka vrsta dekoracije (ja sam kupila ove sjajne plastične u trgovini gdje se prodaje oprema za šivanje, ali gdje god živjeli sigurno ćete uspjeti pronaći nešto slično) i malo satenske trake.

prvi korak
- izrežite onoliko eko kože koliko će vam biti potrebno za ogrlicu
drugi korak
- ušijte dekoraciju po izboru (perlice, kamenčići, kristalići- što god)
treći korak
-  prišijte satensku traku pazeći da je duljina odgovarajuća za vas.


* Mislim da je pošteno da vam upozorim kako će vas ruke možda zaboljeti,, pogotovo ako ovo budete često radili jer kada se radi sa kožom (pa bila to i eko kože) bez posebne opreme to jest sa običnom iglom i koncem, a uz to se ušiva veliki broj ukrasa...Eto nemojte reći da vas nisam upozorila;)

    1. nije teško ni komplicirano, ali je potrebno sat, dva vremena i truda...mislim da se na kraju ipak isplati.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

HOW TO STYLE RED CLOTHING ITEMS FOR WINTER?

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place. HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER?   My…

READING UPDATE: KAZUO ISHIGURO, THE BURIED GIANT AND MORE

Hello dear readers, how's life treating you? It's time for another reading update on my blog. You guys know that I'm a bookworm and a reading addict, right? Today I have a couple of book reviews to share with you. I'll be reviewing four books (more precisely: two novels and two short story collections). It's a mixed crowd of writers that I'm reviewing, from Nobel winning Kazuo Ishiguro to some other well known authors. So, let's get started. Scroll down to read my opinion of these books.  THE BURIED GIANT, A NOVEL BY KAZUO ISHIGURO 5/5 Having seen a fascinating interview with mr. Ishiguro about this very book, I had high expectations for The Buried Giant. I'm happy to report that my expectations were fulfilled. Once again, Kazuo Ishiguro impressed me his subtle and beautiful writing. This novel is a masterpiece. The Buried Giant is very moving tale of an elderly couple in search for their lost past. Axl and Beatrix share a strong connection, but just lik…

VISITING BASINA BAY ON ISLAND HVAR, CROATIA

Weekends are a great time to get proactive about our health and use our free time to go hiking & trekking. Spending time outdoors is quite beneficial for our health. I have written about this topic a number of times on my blog. Those of you who are regular readers know that I like nothing better than exploring the area I live in on foot. Hiking can be such a healthy and inspirational activity and the best thing is that it doesn't cost a thing. Since I have been living on island Hvar these past few months, I have tried to take every opportunity to explore this magical island. Recently I have discovered bay Basina. It is a small bay, very close to Vrboska  and Jelsa. This was my first visit to this beautiful bay. I discovered it quite by chance. Island Hvar has so many amazing beaches and secluded bays to offer. Despite spending most of my summers here, I still have so much to discover.  Basina bay is a beautiful place, no doubt about it. There are so many beautiful bays on isl…
