Hello Everyone! I am back! Sorry I've been MIA for 5 years! Feels longer because I've been missing updating the blog posts for so long. I am happy to report I will be consistently posting DIY tutorials among other new exciting things going forward!

While I've been gone, I've been really getting into making my own jewelry and will be sharing many DIY ideas and projects not only for fashion sewing but also for jewelry making with you all! An outfit is not complete without accessorizing y'all!

For this project, you will need basic jewelry pliers and 20 GG wire. I used brass round wire.
Since we are in the month of February and Valentines day is around the corner, you can make these necklaces to give as a gift or make them for yourself!

 Here is my finished Love Script Necklace, layered with my diamond chain. To add color, I also layered it below with my custom made London blue Topaz and diamond necklace.

 As a bonus, here is a heart shaped pendant necklace!

I personally love how big it is! It makes it so unique and pretty. 
Here are the pendants together. I think they came out pretty great. It is so easy to make and so fun! You can also try making a single letter initial or name pendant as well. I really think these would make a great personalized gift for someone special!

Here's how I made it! Please note, this is not a step by step tutorial. You can search on the internet on how to connect a chain to a pendant etc... Here I am giving you some basics on how I made these two unique jewelry pieces! 

Here are the basic steps!
1. Draw/Write the word Love on a piece of paper to the actual size and look of how you want the pendant to look. Make sure the line is continuous from end to end. Add loops at each end of the word for the jump rings to connect the pendant and chain together.

2. Use a flat and round nose plier to achieve the shape of the letters.

The same technique goes for making the heart shaped pendant necklace.

3. Once the pendants are complete, you will need to attach the chain to the pendant by jump rings.
4. Optional: I used a chasing hammer to flatten out the round wire for texture and to make the lines irregular. The flat areas also reflect more light making the pendant shine!

Voila! There you have it! So simple and easy to make. No soldering required. All cold connections! 

I hope you enjoyed this diy project and are inspired to make your own wire pendant necklace! 

Have fun creating and check out my next project coming soon! Until next time, Take care!




New Easy Fun PDF Skirt Pattern Coming in September!

Hello All,

I am working on a new PDF pattern to launch in September. Perfect time for Fall 15. Of course this is an easy pattern that is for novice sewers. Minimal pattern pieces to keep it simple and easy to understand. Comes in sizes XS to Plus Size. Easy fit and sewing as it has an elastic waistband. Stretch fabric is used for a good fit and fully lined for flattering curve lines. Here are some samples of the "FUN Skirt" I made using some beautiful colorful prints!

I love this print of watercolor flowers in fall colors!

The colors on this print are also amazing. So bright and cheerful. Accents of the bright pink pops making the print very feminine and colorful.

 Cobalt Blue Zebra print! Love it! Who says zebras prints only have to be in black and white?! The fade out print also makes is very unique and pretty.

This skirt is flattering on any body type and so easy to wear and comfortable!
Sometimes, skirts are too tight and restrictive. Only "thin" people can wear pencil skirts but here, we use stretch fabric with elastic waistband. Also, the lining inside smooths out all the little bumps here and there :)

Last but not least the graphic black and white print. Looks great with just about any color!

If you are interested, you can buy one of these skirts there or wait til September when I launch my new downloadable PDF skirt pattern  and make one for yourself! 

Hope you had a great Summer!
