Home Decor – A little thought

Hi
This topic is way off my usual topics that I discuss about .Its one of those topics where one has to be very clever with colors .Yes its interior designing and home decor concept.
I only became aware of a few terms very recently ..that is when I bought our own place .Along with it came the task of decorating .This was when I just discovered myself to be very bad with colors .:(
I mean it I am so bad with colors. As usual  and just like every one else I started searching for information on internet !
So this is what is discovered
1 .Background colors – Colors of  your walls and floor .Tips was to have these sober /neutral colors .
2. Furniture – This needs to match up with wall colors .You can make it mono tone along with the colors of the walls or have a contrast.
3. Ascents – Now this is the interesting part . Ascents are nothing but the accessories and Ascent colors are the colors of these accessories .If you are having neutral colors on your walls and furniture then you can bring out bright colors with these ascents .
Examples for Ascents are : Cushion covers ,vases ,photo frames ,carpets ,throws etc
Current trend of colors include bright colors  like the hot pinks ,flame reds ,oranges ,lime greens ,aqua blues ,yellows etc ,..
Even a simple cushion cover with these colors can bring out a whole new look in the room
If its handmade – its even more lovelier !! and the look you get from these handmade accessories is even more personal and truly special!!

Hi All

I know its been a while I blogged .Yes its been quite a while.

Work has been a bit crazy in the last 3months . Timelines .. deadlines ..and what not !.Returning home ,in the evening ,all I can or have strength to do is crashing .It feels so nice to just lay on my couch and breathe a minute .Unfortunately ,as a mom I cant do that ..

Yeah ..its just like any other working mom , I feel the stress  ! .

Yep that’s enough of my cribbing and complaining … !

Actually not everything is so gloomy ! Jewelry making and card making makes my day the best! Absolute stress busters!!

I always feel refreshed and nice after I do anything crafty..

Hence I did come up with this tutorial ,which I was planning from long time

Connectors – what are connectors ???

Hi guys ,

Today I am going to talk about connectors .In making jewelry the connectors do form an essential component. Very ideal to be used for making handmade jewellery for all skill levels , even ideal for beginners

 

Q1 : What are connectors ???

Connectors are metallic pieces which usually form the centre piece in making earrings mainly .These can also used like pendants in other handmade jewellery like  necklaces etc.

 

Connectors will look something like this

Q2 : Where can I find these connectors???

Pretty much in every bead shop. Craft stores and even online.

They range from colour to shapes and even number of strands .These are also called as multi strand metal components .

You can also find these connectors in online websites like

-ebay.com.au

– eurekabeads.com.au

-beadneeds.com.au

-firemountaingems.com

 

Q3 : Why do we use these connectors ?

These connectors usually are used to chandelier earrings  or pendants .

Like the one I have done here

 

 

 

 

Q4 : Can we make our own connectors ?

Yes we can, We can use the wiring technique to make own connectors .A 22 gauge wire will be very helpful to make some distinctive wire connectors like the ones below

 

Connectors really help in making some wonderful jewelry

Enjoy making handmade jewelry  more using connectors !
