Good morning ladies! Today's DIY Thursday! The one day of the week we come up with a short & sweet beading tutorial for you to enjoy. When we first started publishing our jewelry tutorials we could have never imagined we would be where we are today. We used to make the tutorials on a whim, when inspiration hit. While that was much easier, it left us feeling unprofessional. Mainly because it allowed us to skip a week here and there, and we had no consistency. This went on for a year until I finally kicked myself for not sticking to a schedule. The result was this:
I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't break our Thursday schedule no matter what. Keep in mind that I don't do this by myself, Yesenia makes the jewelry, Judy poses for the pictures and now Jose films and edits the videos ( a task that I've been lucky enough to be able to delegate!) But none of this would've happened if I hadn't stopped fooling around and gotten serious about our blog and DIY's. This is a business after all :) And there you go, fast forward to today and we haven't missed a DIY Thursday deadline to date! Yay!!
Now, we have a weekly newsletter where we share our latest DIY's and a growing YouTube Channel with jewelry tutorials. Make sure to sign up for both of these if you don't want to miss any tutorials in the future. (Click on the links)
Today's beading technique is a really simple Nautical Knot. They're incredibly easy to make, so you could probably make 5 of these in one sitting.
The materials needed are:
2- End cord
4- Jump Rings
