Coffee pods - an experiment in jewellery

Since seeing the Beads n Pods at the craft market, I have been keen to give the upcycled pod jewellery a go.

There is a wonderful YouTube channel that has step-by-step tutorials, so it was time to play! If the link doesn't work, just search for Isobel Naomi (English)

I tried a couple of types - the whirlwind and the whirlwind edelweiss. They are quite simple, but require accurate cutting, so sharp scissors are essential ;)

I added more beads than in the tutorial, to add some extra weight. I also added a button and sequins to one of them that needed a bit of oomph.... And they are all from stuff I already had in my stash! 

I think they are a success ;)
