"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Jasper Donut Necklace

By: Selina Shehan for Rings & Things

This beautiful beaded necklace features a prominent gemstone trillion donut. The four colors of bead in the stand of the necklace pick up on the colors in the donut. For more information on Rings & Things and where you can find the materials for this project see Rings & Things profile page. For another great donut necklace, see the Arizone Summers Necklace.

Jasper Donut Necklace


Materials:

  • 1 #21-340-07-049 40mm gemstone trillion donut, poppy jasper
  • 22 #21-886-049 6mm round gemstone beads, poppy jasper
  • 89 #05-301-04-33 4mm Swarovski® crystal faceted bicones, siam/aurora borealis 2x
  • 90 #05-301-04-20 4mm Swarovski crystal faceted bicones, siam
  • 90 #05-000-03-24 3mm Swarovski faceted round crystals, jet
  • 2 #41-251-3 Size 1 crimp beads, silver plated
  • 2 #48-583 3mm crimp covers, sterling silver
  • 1 #39-550-A Interlock toggle clasp, sterling silver
  • 40" #61-738-49-21 0.024" 49-strand, Beadalon®, silver plated
  • Round-nose pliers
  • side cutters and/or side flush

Instructions:

  1. Cut two 20" strands of Beadalon.
     
  2. String the donut onto one strand and fold the Beadalon in half so the donut sits in the center of the strand.
     
  3. String twelve 4mm bicones onto each end of the strand, alternating colors.
     
  4. Run both strands through a 6mm round gemstone bead and pull tight to hang the donut from the strand.
     
  5. Choose one side of the strand and string the following pattern: 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, 6mm round gemstone. Repeat this pattern four more times.
     
  6. On the remaining strand, string the following: 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 6mm round gemstone.
     
  7. Then, repeat the following pattern five times: 3mm jet, 4mm siam, two 3mm jet, 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, two 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 6mm round gemstone.
     
  8. Instead of stringing the final 6mm gemstone round at the end of the fifth pattern set, run the Beadalon through the 6mm gemstone round from the other strand.
     
  9. Hold the two strands together and slide on a crimp bead, two 3mm jet crystals, one end of the toggle clasp, and two more 3mm jet.
     
  10. Push the two strands back through the crimp bead, pull until snug (but leaving enough room for flexibility) and crimp.
     
  11. Trim excess Beadalon and cover with a crimp cover.
     
  12. Repeat steps 2 – 11 with the second 20" strand of Beadalon.
