Allison Cooling, The Quiet Lion

Allison Beth Cooling, The Quiet LionMy name is Allison Beth Cooling, and I am a craft addict! I am a graphic designer by trade, but love all forms of art. I started my blog, The Quiet Lion, in the summer of 2011. After obsessively scanning through Vogue and other fashion magazines, I got inspired by the designer jewelry that filled the pages. I decided that I would try to replicate the look and feel of those designs using materials found at home and, after a few experiments, found that it was really easy to do so! My blog is devoted to DIY-ing jewelry using all types of techniques and materials. Occasionally, I also post tutorials for accessory DIYs, nail design DIYs, recipes, and art inspirations.

Hello Jen, just noticed your comment on this site. Like yourself I was on here looking for inspiration. Dont know if this will help but I make the loop on the head pin with my round nose pliers, cutting ofF any excess wire is done normally with wire cutters, however dont use your best wire cutters on memory wire it can ruin them. Pick up a cheap set for that job. Also once you have cuff of the excess, flatten the end with square nose pliers. Hope this is helpfull

The bead chain earrings, you didn't explain how to make the loop in the bead pin thing nor say anything about cutting excess off, which I'm assuming from the picture you must have cut some of it? This was supposed to be explicit enough for total novices I thought, but now I don't know that I understand it.

Thanks Allison, these are great! thanks for sharing with us.
