A Pair of Jeans
Step 1: Measure the bottom of your jeans and cut the rhinestone trim to that measurement, adding an extra inch.
Step 2: Iron on the trim slowly making sure you apply heat uniformly. You can use a cotton cloth over the trim to protect it from the heat. Do not iron on the steam setting. Add the second row.
Step 3: Using the sew on jewels, make a three petal flower at the center. Using a needle and thread, sew through the jewels till they feel secure.
That’s it, you’re done!

We all have old bangles cluttering our jewelry boxes. I’d like to share with a quick way to turn your old bangle into a blingin’ Swarovski art piece. I embellished only a portion of the bangle so that you can get a feel for the before and after.
When using different shapes and sizes for this type of embellishing I like to draw out the shape and exact dimensions of what I am going to embellish on paper first. Then lay out my design. This helps you find a pattern that works, so that you avoid gaps or a cramped looking design. Once you have decided on the design of your choice you may begin gluing your stones to your bangle. I believe that the E-6000 adhesive works best.
Today embellishing is seen everywhere, from necklines to ankles. It’s a great way to add color and a little flash to an everyday piece. I was really inspired by John Hardy’s new bamboo and sterling silver cuffs. Since I am not an expert jewelry crafter, I figured a leather cuff would be a great way to get the look.

People often ask me what’s my advice when it comes to fashion. My reply is “Accessorize, accessorize and accessorize some more”. Accessories can really help enhance what you’re wearing; unless you’re already wearing something that sparkles all on its own. Some examples would be a sequin dress or an overly embellished jewel dress.
The Swarovski bracelet I made today would look great with an outfit that doesn’t have any embellishments on it. Like your “Little Black” dress. So let’s get started.
Expecting flowers this Valentines day? Why not put them in a vase as hot as the man who sent them. You can dress up an old vase or grab an inexpensive plain glass vase from your home décor shop.
