This is another simple set that I made for one of my lovely “nietas”, Saschi. The silver necklace length is 19-inch. It goes with anything you want for a festive occasion; movie, Home Coming Dance, Prom; however, you must decide when to enforce your BLING! Smile.
These day’s oversize beads are ruling, you can see them everywhere. A set like this with a black or navy blue dress will call anyone’s attention. Not only the beads are oversized but the color is stunning. I decided to mix in some silver charms to complete the look, then gave it to one of my adorable and sweet daughters. Done!
Seriously, how many girls you think are playing soccer these days? At least a million, smile. A simple black beads bracelet with a soccer ball and matching earrings can make any soccer player happy, especially, if she adores the game.
So, simply, after working hard playing, just go back home, shower, get your skinny jeans and a nice top, your converse tennis and throw in this set. Then to the mall with the girls. Smile.
It’s overwhelming when you finish a project, like a necklace, bracelet and earrings set and still you have good looking beads left that aren’t enough to complete a nice project other than just earrings. Well, I just don’t discard them thinking there must be a project to use them in the future. (Yeah Angie, you are such a beads-hoarder.) Smile.
So, I recently realized that the craze now is to wear irregular, mixed color bohemian beads sets. AWESOME, got my answer for what to do; therefore, I ran to my shop and came up with this set.
To bring all the beads together to make sense, I looked for a basic color bead to kind of bind the set together. I used a red wine color bead in between odd beads. It worked. 5
YOU ENDED UP WITH TOO MUCH ROTISSERIE CHICKEN, LEFTOVER AFTER YOU MADE A DINNER RECIPE FOR 2 PEOPLE. NOW WHAT?
No problem. What I do is to remove bones and skin (and use them to make chicken stock with onion, garlic, celery and herbs). Then, I sort the pieces by drums, breast , thighs and freeze them in zip log bags to use at a later time in soups, arroz con pollo, chicken salad or chicken sandwiches.
TOO MUCH FRESH CILANTRO, PARSLEY, ROSEMARY, MINT AND BASIL:
Rinse the greens thoroughly and spin dry. Chop in your desire size from small to med-size. Spoon in at least 1 tsp. of the chop green. (it could be a tsp. of each green or just one kind, like just cilantro or basil. Add 1 tsp. of water (sometimes I use white wine instead, since I’ll be using the cubes for stews and sauces, etc.) in each compartment of an ice cube tray. Freeze to use the frozen cilantro or greens ice cubes at a later time.
Your recipe calls for a tbsp. of tomato paste. You open the can, use what you need then put it in the fridge. Before you know it, time goes by and then you need to toss it. Next time follow my hack. Open both ends of the small can, keeping the lid of one end to carefully push the paste through. You will end up with a small paste roll. Carefully with a knife slice into several disks. Use what you need. Place the leftover in zip log or plastic wrap, label them and freeze to use as needed at a later time.
As you can see, nothing goes to waste. You got this. What an awesome feeling.
My Camelia Ida at 14 years old is already a fashionista, so I decided to make her a traditional set. PEARLS and BLING, BLING never hurt anyone, smile. We can use pearls for any occasion from going to a nice or a casual party or to either going to work, the mall, or church. You can wear them with a nice fancy gown or with jeans. That’s why is so important to always have several jewelries that incorporate pearls within the design. SWEET!
Well, guess what friends? More of the same, showing you my cute jewelry designs to motivate you to go to the craft store, take a basic jewelry making class and enjoy the fun for years to come.
The best thing that happens when you design and make your own jewelry is that your pieces are one of a kind. Then you go to a party and no one have what you made. Furthermore, your art work becomes a conversation piece. Smart!
I may sound repetitive; however, I can’t stop saying that jewelry is so simple to make. Additionally, it makes it therapeutically soothing to sit in your craft room, enjoying some alone time. Next, you begin the process of selecting the beads that you think you’ll need to create a master piece, smile.
The next step is critical, what should I make, earrings? Bracelets? Necklaces? This next step is the most time consuming. It takes time to select the beads that best fit your design idea. The outcomes are fantastic! Love it!
Purple is one of my favorite colors. In spite of the fact that I have seen gold tones coming back in style, I kind of refuse to let go of the silver, it’s just so soothing.
I selected these beads for a friend of mine hoping that she likes them. They are kind of sparkly; however, you can use them day or night, to go grocery shopping or to a party, it doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is what you will be wearing to accompany them! SMILE.
Jewelry making is so simple and fulfilling. Look at these earrings, love the color combination. You create art and furthermore, it’s a perfect way to relax and feel good about your new acquired skills.
Hey, you can feel happy to have a new hobby or you can turn this hobby into a private business to generate some funds, then go back and purchase more beads, smile. The best part is that you get to use these pretty pieces. You can also give them away to family and loving friends. Is a win-win situation.
