First and foremost, DIWALI wishes to you all. How about making your handmade designer jewellery to Glam up this DIWALI and festive look in less than 15 minutes almost?? Sounds interesting right…
HERE it is … I came up with a “SILK THREAD JHUMKA” tutorial!!!
STEP 1: Material needed for making Silk Thread Jhumka
- Silk thread which matches your dress
- Jhumka mould
- Head pins
- Bead caps
- Stone ball /any available beads
- Stone chains /ball chains for decoration
- Fabric glue
- Scissors, Pillers and Cutters
- Hook /any readymade studs
- Exam pad /Chopping board to wrap thread
STEP 2: How to make Silk Thread Jhumka at home
Wrap 30 strings of thread on Exam Pad. Grab the threads and apply little glue on them. Now cut it in the half & make sure glue is on both sides. One side should be FLAT and the other should be twisted a bit and this would be our needle.
- Insert FLAT side from top of the mould and then start wrapping. Spread the threads properly and wrap it tight.
- WRAP it by giving little gaps just because the circumference of top circle and down circle differs so we get overlaps on top.
- Finish the jhumka in two rounds.
- Make sure, inner side of the Jhumka also looks good with full thread wrap.
- Glue it inside of the mould
- Follow the same process for the other one as well.
- Your two jhumkas are ready to play with IDEAS.
- GLUE would be the biggest enemy for SILK THREAD ,
if you apply more glue threads turn black so take care of it.
- For the decoration apply little glue at the bottom and start adding stone chain. I’m adding green colored chain to it and adding white stone chain and gold ball chain to finish the party wear look.
STEP 5: Fixing the studs and other embellishments
- Take the HEAD PIN and insert BEAD CAP (downward direction as shown in the picture it helps to hold Jhumka properly from the bottom)
- Take it out from the mould….
- Now add one more BEAD CAP on top of the jhumka followed by STONE BALL.
- TRIM excess HEAD PIN and bead it with PILLARS and add hook to it and close .
- Your jhumka would be ready to roll.
- If in case you are using ready made studs add stud loop in place of hook. Studded jhumka will be ready.
Stay tuned for more interesting tutorials coming up soon by me 🙂
