DIY Upholstered Frames

Iris Apfel once said “More is more and less is a bore.” If you’ve been following this blog for awhile, you’ll know that I proudly live by that maximalist mantra. So it’s no surprise that, for months, I’ve been collecting white, minimalist frames, just waiting for that perfect upcycling project.

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.
