To me, it’s important to exert your character and creativity through fashion. From vibrant leggings to character nail’s I like to experiment with fashion this has inevitably lead me to my latest obsession, Hama Beads.
As a child I used to sit for hours creating Perler/Hama bead patterns, which got me thinking, why not turn Hama Beads into bespoke jewellery.
A little googling proved that a few fashionita’s have done just that, there are many examples from Mario Mushroom Earrings to Pokémon Broaches. So I decided to personalise this look further and create Hama Necklaces to match my outfits!
Having just purchased a crazy pair of Barbie Leggings from Miss Selfridge, I decided to create my very own Barbie Head Hama Necklace.
Hama Creations are easy if you have a flare for design and there are many ways to aid and assist you in taking your first steps in design. My personal way was to look up some Hama creations and count the number of beads used so I would be able to replicate the size. I then found an image of what I was trying to replicate and made it to scale (an easy way would be to download an app which helps you design virtually).
Here are some of my master pieces! .. I have added the time taken for each one as a guide! .. or for those of you who simply want to purchase, this can be done so via my Etsy website: http://etsy.com/shop/cornucopiaclothing , I also take requests if you have something specific in mind.
