I have an awesome inspirational give-away for all you lovely DIY-ers and muse seekers out there!
Recently, I’ve discovered that Swarovski publishes a few magazines a year and there is one purely dedicated to creating DIY projects with their Swarovski Elements – Create Your Style.
This is published once a year and each issue is packed with inspirational pictures, step-by-step DIY projects and creative tips based around the use of Swarovski Elements. Each publication has a theme which the pieces within emulate. The theme of 2012 is Sound.
After the first flick through, I already wanted to make half the pieces!
Here are some that instantly caught my eye:
My favourite part of the magazine is the step-by-step instruction section, it really makes me want to try out new techniques and tools! The projects range from simple chain necklaces to bead weaving and wire sculpting using a Thing-a-ma-jig (yes that is what it is called). In my opinion, this part along makes the read worth it.
I have to be honest, when I first heard about a magazine by Swarovski I was not jumping up and down with excitement, but after having a full read through I am glad I did. Many of the pieces are truly original and I cannot stress enough how amazed I was with the instructional section. The projects featured are simpler than expected and I would have never thought about giving them a try without the instructions. In particular, I am itching to try out some bead weaving with the tube ring and a Thing-a-ma-jig for some memory wire fun!
Now that I’ve told you a little about what you could get your hands on, it is time for the part everyone has been waiting for!
Swarovski has been kind enough to allow me to give one of you lucky readers a FREE COPY of the 2012 Issue Sound – Create Your Style with Swarovski Elements magazine! (It really is a mouthful isnt it?)
