DIY Gold Clover Bracelets

I woke up to 10 cm of fresh snow (and a raving sinus cold)… To give you some perspective that is more than the amount Rome has gotten in the last 26 YEARS* (a mere 3h plane ride away)! 
For my mental health it was important to 1. Stay in bed a bit longer 2. Remember that in a month me and two of my great friends are going to Paris for a long spring weekend! (YAY)!

 Some intense research online show that I def need to add the fabric stores around Montmartre a visit, the bead store district (which is also the sex store areas… I guess only in Paris) in Les Halles, as well as the “ Les Puces de St-Ouen” flea market bead booth. And once again I have a spring in my step. 
Thank God for the internet (and let’s not forget cheap plane tickets!)
 If anyone have must do’s in Paris feel free to share!

The Amazing Alicia from Dismount Creative did another take on the Hair elastic / bracelet  we did the other day, it looks great so check it out here

Today is another Arm Candy Day (I never get sick of them) so follow the beadathlon and get started!


I am hoping to wake up with less snot on my face then what I did yesterday (Sorry for sharing), so this is sleepy time for me lovelies! Ta ta! (ohh, and do share Pairs To-Do's)


  1. Awesome DIY and adorable gold bracelet!

  2. Hi,
    Since you are coming soon to Paris I thought you might enjoy a couple of my absolute favorite addresses for fabrics shopping & more:
    - SACRES COUPONS (fabric) - 4bis rue d'Orsel, 75018 Paris. This is my absolute favorite fabric store on earth. They basically sell remnants from designers (Yves Saint Laurent, Hermes, Vuitton etc...). The pieces are 3 meters long, but you can ask for 1/2 of the remnant. Prices are reasonable & the fabrics are fabulous. They have a storer next to it that sell knits & leather.
    Around that area (at the bottom of the Sacré Coeur) there are loads of fabric store so explore & enjoy.
    - LA DROGUERIE (beads, ribbons, Yarns): 9 rue Jour, 75001 Paris. That is near Les Halles, but not as seedy as you may have seen in your internet searches. Imagine dying & arriving in heaven for a crafty girl. A bit pricey but the store is so pretty & their items gorgeous. Queue up at one of the counters & wait a little (avoid saturday!). It's wonderful!
    - Here is a link to a few more addresses:
    Leave me a note on the blog if you need some other tips.
