DIY Ice Dyeing

Did you know that ice dyeing was first conceived by quilters who were looking for a resourceful way to dye fabric during winter months? They used snow and dyes to achieve that mottled watercolor look that we’ve come to love and recognize as ice dyeing. If you haven’t dyed clothing before, do not fear! The process is fairly simple and honestly, extremely fool proof. Truth be told, not much is in your control besides the selection of colors. As the ice slowly melts, it spreads and deposits dye into the fabric at varying rates.

AGJ x HWTF: DIY Happy Daze Charm Bracelet

The first of the three kits features a 14k charm and cord bracelet DIY. With each kit, you’ll receive one of 4 charms of your choice: a daisy smiley, peace sign, hamsa or heart. Each charm comes with 4 different colored cords so that you can customize the color and even switch them out if your heart so desires. The technique required is called a sliding knot and it’s applied in two different ways, depending on the type of charm used. It’s simple and if executed correctly, this bracelet will stand the test of time.

AGJ x HWTF: DIY Going For Baroque Pearl Necklace

One night late last summer, my friend Ariel of Ariel Gordon Jewelry and I were commiserating over the phone about the pandemic, parenting, the election . . .  the overall state of the world, to be honest. By the end of the conversation, and perhaps after a couple glasses of wine, we decided to join forces on DIY jewelry kits. Desperate for collaboration, pure delight and something to do with idle hands, we started brainstorming and meeting (masked) in each other’s backyards over the course of a few months to design three happy-inducing DIY kits. As Spring finally approaches, the timing couldn’t feel more right to launch our kits. We had so much fun creating them, Ariel and I hope you feel the same when making them.
