Turn inexpensive rope from the hardware store into an eye-catching accessory with this how-to from TV crafter Kristin St. Clair.
Jump for rope! The sailor’s knot symbolizes a perfect marriage between form and function. Crafty mariners not only used essential roping skills to safely set sail, they also made bracelets to show off their skills. These handcrafted wares were believed to bring good fortune, and were often given as gifts to their sweethearts upon returning to port.
Love rings made from silver spoons & forks & butter knives. They can also be used to make bangles & bangles. I have a butter knife bracelet - the knife part was kept on, so you can tell what it is...looks a little strange but makes for an interesting piece of jewelry.
