DIY Easiest DIY Ever Agate Necklace Tutorial from Henry Happened. I hesitated posting this because this necklace is even easier to make than the “stick and glue” DIYs I post. It’s buying a agate pendant and making a necklace. So if you would like to start making jewelry at the beginner level - this project is for you.

DIY Stitched Air Dry Clay Ring Tutorial from Little Button Diaries. This is like the polymer clay anchor buttons I posted here, except she uses air dry clay. I really like this DIY and can see it being worn as a pendant.

Gabriel García Márquez Dead: Nobel Prize-Winning Author Dies At 87 (TIMENew York Times)

Colombian Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez was the author of One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967), Autumn of the Patriarch (1975), Love in the Time of Cholera (1985), in addition to many other novels, short stories, and non-fiction works. In 1982 he received the Nobel Prize in Literature for “his novels and short stories, in which the fantastic and the realistic are combined in a richly composed world of imagination, reflecting a continent’s life and conflicts.” García Márquez, only the fourth of six Latin Americans to be awarded the literature prize since its inception in 1901, lamented: “they have taken into account the literature of the sub-continent and have awarded me as a way of awarding all of this literature.” In his acceptance speech, entitled “The Solitude of Latin America”, García Márquez addressed the postcolonial struggles of Latin American nations, and the willing embrace by European institutions of Latin American cultural expression but not its social realities:

Latin America neither wants, nor has any reason, to be a pawn without a will of its own; nor is it merely wishful thinking that its quest for independence and originality should become a Western aspiration. However, the navigational advances that have narrowed such distances between our Americas and Europe seem, conversely, to have accentuated our cultural remoteness. Why is the originality so readily granted us in literature so mistrustfully denied us in our difficult attempts at social change? Why think that the social justice sought by progressive Europeans for their own countries cannot also be a goal for Latin America, with different methods for dissimilar conditions?

DIY Leather, Crystal and Metal Wrap Bracelet Tutorial from How Did You Make This? I love this site because their tutorials are always beautifully photographed and very detailed. This is metal leaf (as opposed to gold leaf, silver leaf etc…) applied to leather.

Anthropologie Inspired Rope Necklace | Henry Happened
I love how statement necklaces can take your outfit from blah to bam, and this one is no exception! Nautical goes a bit edgy with the addition of gold spikes with this Anthro inspired necklace from Henry Happened, and bonus - it costs a lot less to make than to buy - always good for the hip pocket!

Making satin ribbon rose with the folding technique is quite popular and one of my favorite fabric flower patterns. I made some satin ribbon rose rings last week and learned a few tricks about it.
