Every Friday evening, I post a set of free project instructions.

Quick! What can you do in 30 minutes? Bake fresh biscuits from scratch. Learn a new dance routine. Wash and groom your pooch, making him even cuter than before.

Or if you’re like jewelry designer Mimi Cheung,  you can make a necklace that features the sweetest cloud-shaped charms. Get a PDF of the instructions for Mimi’s  adorable necklace by clicking here. The project is one of 60 very cool designs from Lark’s recent release, 30-Minute Necklaces.

    Good ideas for last minute items.


    This is so cute and now I’m thinking of all the alternate materials you could use to make this (shrinky dink plastic, recycled laminated paper…etc). Thanks for sharing this!

    It would really be cool to win those books. I am in a hurry most of the time when I sit down to make something. Someone always wants something right now because they forgot to call early so this would help a lot. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Very cute, so far I have only worked with beads, wire, and wood. Am going to attempt metal in a few months. Thanks for the opportunity to win something that will prove very useful. I am semi-retired and anything I can make to supplement my small income is helpful.

    this has nothing to do with jewelery…but was first post i saw with your name.
    I bought your book “A is for Apron”, the shop I bought from had the patterns enlarged, she thought they were all by 400%. I tried by checking the measurements given in inches on various pieces and they seemed to be okay….but!!! i cannot believe how incredibly STUPID this book really is. On one pattern you have it to be enlarged in 4 to 5 different %s. You would have to xerox the page, cut out the pieces and have them enlarged individually which is too expensive for me. I cut out several aprons, two waldorfs that luckily for me where enlarged correctly BUT I cut “mango Tango” out of vinage hawaiian fabric and as I was going over pattern, I realized this is one of the stupid ones with many different % increases. Why would you do such a terrible thing. I am sure I am not the only person to have made this horrific blunder. I am so unhappy, the vintage fabric is priceless and was a gift for myself for my birthday, I will be 61 on the 18th. I feel like burning this book! I have wasted a roll of freezer paper, a bolt of pattern pelon, I am sick and disgusted. I dont think I can give a positive review to anyone about this book. You really need to fix this and make the changes available to anyone who has bought the book. I hope you will reply to this, i think it is important. I live off a crappy disability check, so this book was a splurge and so was the wasted materials. i am sick about my vintage hawaiian fabric and also some vintage palaka cloth….i cut tthe provence smock out of that. this really sucks! susan kinkki
