So, right around the time that I started the Hairscapades Facebook page, I “met” Fatemeh, the artisan behind Fatemeh’s Jewelry & Accessories. I loved her peacock earrings and crochet hats so much that I sent her a message about possibly doing a collabo. Well, that irksome “Other” Messages FB folder tried to stand in the way of progress. But now, many months later, FB’s nefarious plot has been foiled!!

I started making jewelry in the summer of 2010. I am an advanced crocheter and, for some reason, got tired of making coats and sweaters. I sat down one day and started making jewelry. A box of items were just sitting on the floor, so my sister suggested that I sell them. That’s where Fatemeh’s Jewelry & Accessories started.

I make crochet and beaded jewelry and hair accessories. Every item you see is made by hand. Every bead is strung, every wire is wrapped, every fabric is cut and yarn is crocheted. I want people to walk around with an item that no one else has. So, my jewelry is one of a kind. You will not see any two pieces alike. But, items can be duplicated upon request. Look in the “Sold” section of my shop.

I am very meticulous. If I don’t like a finished product (crochet or jewelry), I will take it apart. I have taken apart whole crochet sweaters. People think I’m crazy for doing that. If I don’t like how an item looks, it will not be sold or given away.

I also do custom orders … YOU create a one of a kind piece.

P.S. — I Made This …

Standard

Okay, what do you guys know about this? If you’re like me about a week ago, NOTHING! But now, I’m preparing to reel in a new, time-consuming obsession! About a week ago, a work friend tells me about this blog and book, P.S. — I made this …. The concept for the site was to serve as a compilation of tutorials for all these pretty simple and clever fashion/accessory DIY projects. My first question? “Is there sewing involved? I don’t do sewing.” She quickly responds, “No, a lot of it doesn’t require any sewing!” No sewing involved?! I’m all on this!

So, I check out the site for a hot sec that evening and am intrigued. But I gotta write posts. So, off I go. The following day, the same friend brings in the book version of the blog. I flip through the first several pages, return the book to her and, by the end of the day, the order on Amazon had been placed ($12.76 on Amazon vs. the $18.95 list price).

So yeah, if you love fun, seemingly easy DIY projects and are looking for frugal ways to spice up your wardrobe, you may want to check this out!

First on my “to do” list? One of these ADORABLE headbands (the pink one is in the book and looks even cuter there … ok, a little sewing is required for this one)!!
