A Special Piece of Jewelry

My beloved grandfather passed away 23 years ago. I was only 12 years old when this special person in my life died. However, this man taught me so many things during the few years I spent with him. My grandfather was also an accomplished guitarist. A few months ago, I visited the home he shared with my grandmother. While searching through his old belongings, I found a guitar pick. To keep the memory of my grandfather alive, I want to make a necklace out of this special token from my grandfather’s past. On this blog, you will discover how to make jewelry items from guitar picks.

Are You Making Your Own Spring Clothes?

by Priscilla Gray

You have probably already figured out that, by shopping for great sales, you can actually buy clothes at a reasonable price. However, if you are an excellent seamstress and you have a passion for making your own clothes, you can also have one-of-a-kind outfits that would cost you a pretty penny if you bought them in an upscale clothing store or in a boutique. If you have decided to make your own spring clothes, you might be looking for ideas that will give your outfits a unique look. If so, from selecting hologram spandex fabric to buying accessories that will enhance your outfits, here are some considerations for you.

Choose Hologram Spandex Fabric - If you've already had the experience of sewing with hologram spandex fabric before, you have probably already decided that you want that experience again. If you have never sewn with this type of fabric in the past, you're in for a treat. Besides being unique, hologram spandex fabric is easy to work with and easy to maintain. Just launder the clothing items with same-color clothes and dry them as you normally would, or wash the clothes and let them air dry on a hanger to give them even longer wear.

Think of the outfits you want to create with hologram spandex fabric. For example, if you are wanting to make a new Easter dress, think of buying spandex fabric in spring colors like yellow, turquoise, and peach. Or, choose complementary colors for your Easter outfit. For example, a light pink sleeveless dress made of the hologram spandex fabric with the addition of a hot pink bolero type jacket might be perfect for you. 

​Add Accessories To Finish The Look - One idea for your accessories is to use hologram spandex fabric to add pizzaz to the outfits you make yourself. For example, if you have made a cocktail dress using plain black, think of making a shawl to go with it out of shiny black hologram fabric that has bits of silver or gold in the design. A shawl for a party dress made out of hologram spandex fabric is another idea. For example, if you selected a floral design for your party dress, then choose a solid color from the floral design that will complement your dress.

Choosing the right jewelry to go with your outfits will be the frosting on the cake. For example, if you selected black shiny spandex fabric that has little gold flecks to make it shine, then think of buying gold jewelry to finish the look. If you chose a colorful floral print for a party dress, consider choosing a necklace, bracelet, and earring set that will complement the colors of the dress you made.
