Project DIY: Baroque n’ Roll Alternatives

6

This Thursday we’re shifting the gears in reverse back to December’s Baroque n’ Roll collection. Why? Well we recently had a Project DIY workshop, and the customized pieces made by the attendees were amazing! Inspired by their creativity, designer, Michelle Levy, made some amazing Baroque n’ Roll alternatives. If you didn’t subscribe in December, no worries! You can still pick up the Baroque n’ Roll collection at MJTRIM.com!

Double Strand Baroque BraceletDouble Strand Bracelet from Project DIY

1. Double up the pearl rosary and the rhinestone chains to create a two-strand bracelet instead of the hand adornment. You can wear the leftover ring on its own or embellish it with the stone from the gem turban.

Snowdrop Earrings

Snowdrop Earrings from Project DIY

1. Remove 2 pearl links from your pearl rosary as well as 6 rhinestone links from your rhinestone chain (part of the Baroque Hand Adornment).
2. Attach one pearl link to the top of each earring filigree using a jump ring.
3. Cut up the rhinestone chain into individual stone pieces, and glue them to the earring filigree instead of the black resin flowers.
4. Play around to come up with a combination that you love!

Baroque n’ Basic Headband

Baroque n' Basic Headband from Project DIY

1. Follow our online guide to sew the basic headband shape.
2. Leave off the filigree and gem details, and wear your headband with the seam at the base of your neck for a more traditional headband look! Spread out the lace on your hair for more coverage, or scrunch it up for a thinner style.

Asymmetrical Pendant Necklace

1. Mix and match your components from all three projects to create a unique asymmetrical piece.

Pearl Cluster RingPearl Cluster Ring from Project DIY from Project DIY

You will need the pearl rosary chain and the filigree ring (both from the Baroque Hand Adornment).

1. Open a jump ring and close it around the center of your filigree ring.
(Refer to our DIY tips n’ tricks guide if you need some guidance on how to open and close a jump ring.)
2. Use your flat plier to gently bend open the wire loop on one pearl link from your pearl rosary chain. Remove one entire link from the chain (one link= pearl with wire loop on each side). Add the open wire loop to the jump ring from step 1, and bend back the wire to secure.
3. Repeat the process by removing more links from the chain and adding them to the ring until you can’t fit any more!

Chain Bracelet Ring DIY

If you’re anything like us here at M&J, you love accessorizing. With the summer heat rolling in fast, we often neglect our jewelry due to the additional bulk and weight it usually adds on. Luckily for us, this statement making piece is so lightweight you’ll barely feel it on. Regardless of the temperature outside, we’ll be rocking this easy chain bracelet/ring combo DIY.

Place the last link of each side of your chain through your spiral ring. Once the links are on the ring, swivel them to the center so they will be secure.
