Days Left: 77 days as of today
When I finally finished our wedding cord, I immediately showed it to h2b. He's really impressed of what I did, because at first he can't picture it out. Every time I buy something bit by bit for the cord like the initials and the crucifix he kept on asking me "what for?!" This has been a trial and error project for me. At first I don't want to use pins because I'm scared it might get caught with my gown or h2b's barong but when I tried to use a thick nylon it's too heavy, so I just used the pins I just made sure that eveything is intact.
Excited much to post this DIY... :)
(our motif beads, pic 2-4 trinkets, pic 5 initials and crucifix, my trusty and rusty pliers and long nose)
Steps: (Hope you understand this)
1. Insert the pin into the beads. If there's an excess on the pin you can cut it using your pliers.
2. Twist the other end part of your pin. Secure your eye (the twisted part of the pin) to make sure that the other pin that will follow will not be detached.
3. Insert the other eye of your beads to the first one. Until you form a chain. (It is easier for me to finish a set of "eye-bead-eye" before I put another set than doing a few sets then removing the eye to connect to form the chain)
4. Continue making the chain to form at least 50 inches before you connect the chain to a trinket of your choice.
5. Do a second chain by doing steps 1-3.
6. Connect your chains or rosary, if you prefer it more, to a ring or a trinket of your choice.
7. Secure every eye that you make just to make sure that everything is in place and will not fall off easily.
I bought the beads and the trinkets at Welmanson. The crucifix I bought it at St. Paul in SM North and the letters in a bead shop I forgot the name it's in Trinoma. The other materials like the pins and the pliers I have it before when I use to do my own earrings, but they have it at Welmanson as well.
That's it. Till Next Time.
Happy Preps... :)
