If we’ve got one tip to offer up for your Fall accessory collection…make sure it ROCKS. Chanel had an all-out crystal ball with its Fall 2012 collection, as Karl Lagerfeld decked heels, cuffs, hems and even eyebrows with brilliant moonstones & rocky gems. Fuse abstract amethyst, moody-hued quartz and shimmering fluorite to create a bold yet (literally) precious D.I.Y. hair accessory for a look that packs the power of Kryptonite both day and night.
To create: Cut a rectangular piece of leather (or leather-like) fabric to the approximate size of your barrette. Glue the backside of the fabric piece to your barrette with extra-strength glue - we used E6000. To avoid excess glue and drips, use a craft stick. Finish by embellishing with an array of quartz and crystals. Let dry completely, then style for an instant eye-catcher.
Did you know that Pantone chips evolved from a solution to help shoppers choose precise shades of pantyhose*? Fifty years later, Pantone’s universe of hues is the standard relied upon by every industry that deals with color; so, it was only a matter of time that they’d start defining trends as well. Pantone declared Emerald as 2013’s Color of the Year…and since we’re also celebrating the Year of The Snake, this week’s DIY links both milestones together and keeps you up-to-date with a tassel necklace that would leave even Queen Medusa herself green with envy.To create: Add a wood bead to the top of each tassel. Separate links on theacrylic chain and link tassels on, placing longest tassel in the center of the chain. Knot each end of the chain with metallic rope (or opt for ribbon), and tie to finish off.Get down with DIY and a dope playlistCurated by The Jane Doze
