DIY Polymer Clay Pendant. If you’ve ever wanted to try out polymer clay, this is a really good tutorial/pictorial on how to create a simple pendant. Go on the internet to see how to use sandpaper (going from course to very very fine) to make your polymer really shiny without using a coating. One download photo from galka_vasina’s Flickrstream here. *Scariest thing about working with polymer clay: the knife. They used to be only available at medical supply houses and were called tissue knives because that’s what they sliced up.

It reminds me of the very popular trend of long dangly ear cuffs that are everywhere at the moment. This does require a little skill - mainly using the pliers to open and close the loops of the chain - but once you get the hang of it you’ll be addicted to jewelry making and there’s no turning back! Haha!

Open Shoulder Blouse | Ella Gata
I’ve been seeing these open shoulder blouses everywhere at the moment. I saw one in Grazia magazine that just had the shoulders off (instead of like this with the arms too) which was awesome - just different enough to make it ‘fresh’. If you want to try this and don’t sew Ella Gata suggests using fusible tape.

Best idea ever for those shirts that tend to slide off your shoulders. Sew in a simple clip to attach around your bra.
