Not all of us are fashionistas, and when it comes to completing an outfit with cute accessories some of us may be left standing there by the mirror scratching our heads wondering what to do next. Of course, there is nothing wrong with rocking the basic look. Jeans and a shirt, high-waisted pants and a tucked in blouse, or skirt and a sweater. However, there is nothing wrong with taking it up to the next level and adding just a touch of pizzazz.

Oxidizing jewelry is something I find myself doing a lot lately. I find it fun and easy. Simply follow along with the photos and simple steps. Step 1: Buy a couple dozens of eggs (I used way too many eggs for my project in the beginning.. I recommend not wasting food). Using boiled eggs can be hard work but it is rather safe than some of the other chemicals used for oxidizing jewelry. In another post I will show you how I oxidize by using Liquid of Sulfur. For this project I used 2 eggs for about 6 rings, two Ziploc medium sized bags, two paper towels, a small size sauce pan for boiling the eggs, string, scissors, and foil. Step 2: Boil the eggs in about 2 cups of water for about 15-20 minutes. Put the eggs in the pot before you add the water to avoid cracking them
Step 3: Pick out what jewelry you want to oxidize and set aside
Step 4: Set aside the Ziploc bags/ paper towels

It has been a while since I last posted a ‘Project Revamp’ post, as most things I now make from scratch! However, revamping things was what really got me started in DIY-ing. I love looking out for old pieces of trinkets, and figuring out ways to update its look to suit my taste.
I was at the Kuala Lumpur Vintage Festival (KLVF) a few weeks ago and scored some cheap accessories – though I only bought them because I had ideas of adding my DIY touch to it!
This revamp I’ll be showing you is simple – all you need is a little patience and steady hands! I wanted to add a little more depth and texture to a plain triangular necklace – the idea was to give a rougher look to it and one of the ways to achieve that was to add spiky stuff! It’s true…I am still loving my studs!

Ugly Sweaters have become all the rage these last couple of years when it comes to holiday fashion. The trick the best sweater is getting one that is over the top with the holiday spirit, or just plain ugly. Nowadays any holiday-esque sweater is in high demand, and my prediction is that they are going to be in even higher demand if this new DIY project from Westknits takes off.
So amazing thanks for sharing

How does one accumulate such a massive collection of t-shirts? It’s like they multiply. They’re under beds, sticking out of drawers and laying around your closet. One thing is for sure, they take up all the space that you can be utilizing for new clothes! Instead of wasting them, find a way to repurpose those old tees. Do-it-Yourself projects are great when you have a lot of time on your hands, so the next time there’s a monsoon outside grab some scissors and get to it!

Everywhere I look I see “tech-sessories” – every brand has their own line of phone covers, laptop bags, tablet cases. I am loving this – any excuse to further accessorize and I am there! That being said, I love taking inspiration and making something truly “my own” so how could I possibly resist creating my own phone cover?!
My personal style probably errs a bit on the boho side so anything a bit tribal/aztec/ikat and I am all over that like white on rice so it’s no surprise what the inspiration for this DIY pattern is…

For as long as I can remember I have always loved doing crafts. I’ve tried just about everything over the years Crocheting, Knitting, Sewing (Which I am HORRIBLE at), painting (no good there either) but finally one day I was wandering around a store and found their bead section and thought eh, why not lets see what happens… It’s been almost two years now, and I am addicted! I love everything about making jewelry, I love working with wire, bead stitching, bead weaving, stringing… Everything. There is truly no limit on what you can make.
Everyday I find something new that I want to learn how to make. It’s amazing! And I am so thankful for all the people that I’ve met during the short time I’ve been doing this. I’ve met some amazing people who also make jewelry and I am blessed that they have been willing to help me out so much.
Here are some examples of my work. Some of these items have already sold, but please check out my facebook to see what I currently have for sale.
