Update on my Arm Candy project + fabric covered bangles

I know I mentioned in my last post that I would talk about my new project soon. However, I had a mild relapse which means that my life has been a triangle of work, home and hospital; and that has not been very sexy! Anyways, in between all of that, I have been scouting the web and stalking some awesome bloggers for inspiration on my ‘Arm Candy by Koltureshoq’ project and it’s all so exciting (and almost overwhelming). From chain to beads to clay to crotchets and all sorts of macramé patterns, there are just so many possibilities. My creative juices are overflowing and my hands are just itching to start.

Oh snap, I think I should talk about it already. My goal is to make 500 arm candies (bracelets) by December 31. Now I know you might think it’s a lot of bracelets to make (I do too) and that I may get bored with doing the same thing over and over again (there’s that possibility); however, I have broken down this goal into smaller ‘achievable’ tasks. For instance, I will have to make at least 12 bracelets every day until December 31. In order to take care of the boredom problem, I will vary the kind, size, material and pattern of the bracelets I make each day. Right now, I have made 35 arm candies; which leaves me with 1,2,3,4……….350…..375…..401…..465 arm candies to go. What??? Phew!!!

I don’t have pictures of any of them right now, but I will soon and I’ll keep you updated. I’ll be creating stuff from my own ideas, inspiration from other bloggers and knockoffs from Anthropologie, Shopbop and the likes. If there’s any kind of bracelet you want me to try out, please let me know in the comments section and we’ll see what we can do about that.

Since I don’t have any tutorial pix and I totally want you to look at something nice, here’s a picture of some bangles that I made.


All you need are some bangles, fabric scraps, ribbon, scissors and glue. I’ll try and prepare a tutorial soon or I’ll hook you up with someone who does and you can DIY and have an arm party.

I would like tips on how to take better photographs and maybe some editing tips as well. Also thinking of getting a 16megapixel camera; whatyathink?
