DIY Jean Seam Morse Code Bracelet Tutorial from Mich L. in L.A. here. I actually like these plain - with no painted morse code. Really easy tutorial that uses ribbon crimp ends. I love Morse Code jewelry and have other DIYs posted here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/morse-code

DIY Inspiration to Use Unconventional Materials for Crafting by Mich L. in L.A. I love the weekly “Guess the Mystery Thing” Challenge on Mich L. in L.A.’s site - and the funny guesses from readers. Both Photos: Mich L. in L.A. Top Photo: DIY Plastic Horse Comb Spiked Jewelry here, Bottom Photo: DIY Castrating Band Bracelet here (mini donuts anyone?). Both items can be found at farm and feed stores (I don’t exactly live in the country, but our area has a farmers’ store, and how interesting would it be to ask for castrating bands in different colors?). * I also posted Mich L. in L.A.’s Dollar Store Baby’s Pacifier Necklace here.
DIY Jean Inseam Bracelet Tutorial from Mich L. in L.A. here. Really easy and cheap tutorial, and for all of you cutting off your jeans to make shorts - save the bottoms! *Saw this first in the DIY/everything tag but the link went back to a Tumblr blog and there was no mention of the original source (so no tutorial).
DIY Pacifier Necklace. Yes, a Dollar Store baby’s pacifier/binky. I really like this idea for kids’ jewelry, but she shows some really cool ideas for necklaces on her site. Tutorial from Mich L. in LA here.
