Learn How to Make Jewelry, Beading Center | Auntie's Beads Whether you are new to making jewelry or a more advanced designer, you know that jewelry design is part inspiration, part skill and part creativity. The basics are easy to learn; once you have mastered techniques like stringing, wire wrapping and stitching, you will discover just how easy the process can be - and how endless the possibilities are for making beautiful bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings. More often than not, the difficult part can be finding inspiration or overcoming creative block. Even our professional designers, who have years of experience, sometimes struggle with creating new and exciting wearable works of art. Look around you. Learn something new. Walk away. Join a group. Hopefully, beading brings you great comfort, peace of mind and reward - whether it be monetarily or from the simple satisfaction that you have created work admired by yourself and others.

Tricks + Treats: Graphic Soaps by Sarah Rhodes - A Beautiful Mess - StumbleUpon Hi, It's Sarah from Team Rhodes Weddings! I am going to share a simple soap DIY with you this morning. Enjoy! Shopping list: - clear glycerin (found at craft stores) or you can recycle clear soaps of your own.- essential oils for lovely smelling soaps- a small milk carton- tracing paper, book pages, transparency paper, any kind of paper, or pretty fabric squares. Have your artwork to put in soaps ready before you start! Over low heat, melt your glycerin in a pot on your stove. Add your oils! Once all the glycerin is melted, pour it into your milk carton. Put the whole carton in your freezer for quick setting! Once you're done with all of them, and they're all solid, then tear off the carton around the bars. Thanks, Sarah!

Be Beautiful Manchester Based British Beauty Blog, Lifestyle Blog, Jewellery Blog, DIY Beauty Blog: DIY: Eye Make Up Remover - the best trick I've discovered! So a looong time ago I did a post about taking your eye make up off with olive oil. I've been doing this for about 6 months now and have noticed the skin around my eyes seems a lot more moisturised and supple. Recently however, I've added another natural ingredient to my olive oil and it seems to be working ever better. So I'd done some research on what to add to olive oil so that its still as effective at removing tough, stubborn make up but with less drag and came across witch hazel. A few people will be worrying about placing an astringent like witch hazel around the eye area but I've checked with my optometrist who assured me that it would be fine but to take care with it as I would any other product that I applied to the eye area. So to make your eye make up remover you'll need: Extra Virgin Olive Oil Witch Hazel (Boots sell it near the pharmacy bit) A pump dispenser (I'm using an old Molton Brown Hand Cream Bottle) Not only is this 100% natural but it's so cost-effective.
