33  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Japanese Princess Style Short Fur Boots Detail Tutorial on: June 12, 2011 10:39:21 AM
My post entry link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/fashion/re-construction-japanese-princess-style-short-fur-boots

This is a re-design project that can transform your old or broken boots into a totally girly princess style furry one in less than 30 minutes. No only you can save your favorite boots from now on, you are also giving your old boot a fresh new look and complete make over. I just could not believe how good my old boots look after the transformation.







The design idea came from a product of my favorite brand Liz Lisa.  Ive been wanting to buy it since I saw the picture a couple months ago. Due to the geographic and price reason, I can only dream about having it. Over 300 dollars for a pair of boots is way to high for my price range so making one myself seems like a more affordable options.

Great for dressing up any casual outfit or wear with elegant evening or ballroom gowns. These accessories are easy to make, they only require some simple jewelry making tools and materials and about 15 minutes of your time. If thats the cost for being fabulous, sign me up!

36  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Princess Style Phone Charms Key Chains on: May 06, 2011 09:19:50 PM
My Post Entry Link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/diy-bow-phone-charms-key-chains

Key chains and phone charms are my all time favorite accessories besides necklaces and bracelets. I am incorporating some other lovely features into the designs such as ribbon bows, pearls and adorable charms. Hopefully these designs can inspire you in some way.

Since I started this blog, I have received a lot of wonderful comments about my designs. Lot of my friends love it and want to purchase the items, so  I decided to start an Etsy store once I move down to Seattle. Thats why I made lots of different design phone charms and key chains getting ready for my online store opening next month.

37  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bow Shape Pearl Necklace Tutorial on: May 01, 2011 07:42:41 AM
My Post entry Link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/bow-shape-pearl-necklace-tutorial

This is another simple design I created with the same materials. I made this classy bow shape pearl necklace in less than 15 minutes. The cost is very minimum ( less than 5 USD ) but the result looks absolutely gorgeous.



The bow is really the focal point of the design and it is a bit more complicated to make. It took me a couple tries to finally get the desire shape and figure out how to connect the parts together is tricky. Other than that, the whole tutorial is an easy level project.

Using the pre-cut jewelry wire to hold the tiny white glass pearls, bend the wire into a oval shape as we insert the pearls and finally make a loop at the end to keep them in place. Duplicate the process one more time and these parts will become the two loops of my bow pendant. Use the wire to thread one big pearl in the bottom tiny ones above it then close it with the loop, again, make two of these so we can use them as the tails for our bow pendant.

Since I made all four parts of the bow separately, I choose to use a very simple method to connect them together- jump ring. A medium size silver jump ring will do the job because each part has loops at the end.

The rest of the necklace is simple using the same wire pearl techniques just like how I made the bracelet earlier. Here is the tutorial link for the earlier post: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/wired-pearl-bracelet-tutorial













38  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Simple Wired Pearl Bracelet on: April 21, 2011 06:41:17 PM
My Post Entry Link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/wired-pearl-bracelet-tutorial

I am so excited to share this tutorial with you because I always love the elegant look of pearl jewelries and I just cannot believe how easy it is to do it yourself. I am making earrings, bracelet and necklace with only pearls and wires. It takes about 5-10 minutes for each project and is extremely cost effective.



Wiring is a super simple technique and once you learn it, you can make so many types of accessories involving pearls & regular beads.

My post entry link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/nail-art/sweet-hearts-on-the-edge-nail-design-tutorial



No nail stamping tool is required for this design. Just a very simple buy lovely design for a special theme- LOVE! We only need two nail polish color and feel free to mix and match base on your preference. This design takes about 10 minutes of your time and no extra cost at all.

This set of nails are good for a lot of special occasions like valentines day, anniversary, bridal shower or even weddings. Why go get your nails done and pay so much money if you can just do this in your own time. All you will need is a steady pair of hands.











40  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hello Kitty Cell Phone Decoden on: April 11, 2011 06:08:29 PM
my post entry link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/bow-shape-pearl-necklace-tutorial

Finally I am ready to do a tutorial on how to glam up my lovely pink cell phone. The purchases I did recently on Etsy has really gave me a lot of inspiration for this project. DIY my cell phone allow me to express my design and save money because purchasing a bling up case by others can be extremely expensive. If your phone is unusual like mine, finding a blinged case is super difficult as well.



I purchased a lot of substitute things like gems, rhinestones and lace in some local craft stores in Florida but the quality and variety is not really my top choice. Since I discover the Etsy website, I am been able to purchase a lot of high quality decoden parts which allow me and achieve my desire design.
