Button Statement Rings It’s September and that means it’s time to add another statement piece to your collection…. obviously! I heart almost every piece Nicole Richie designs for House Of Harlow 1960, especially her oversized rings. As amazing as these rings are they’re also an easy DIY. My friend Jenni, from I Spy DIY, did a project a few months back where she transformed buttons into earrings. #SuperFab This got me thing…let’s transform buttons into statement rings! Buttons, buttons everywhere!! Giant Felt Flower Tutorial PATTERN (Free) One of the things I love about hairpieces is you can make them anywhere…. well, anywhere they sell felt.

Colour Mania: A Global Spectrum of Unitone Design by Maria Popova A global ethnography by way of design, or what chocolate packaging has to do with indie music. As a hopeless lover of both color and minimalism, I was instantly enamoured with Colour Mania by Victionary — a magnificent collection of stellar unicolor works in nine colors and a rainbow tone, spanning graphic design, illustration, packaging, branding, interior design and more. Each of the book’s ten color-based chapters, separated by peel-off color tabs, features a meticulously curated selection of eye candy in the respective hue — yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, green, brown, achromatic / black-and-white, and rainbow. Color initially conveys no meanings when it stands alone, but it connotes feelings and values that vary from places, culture and time and are subject to personal feelings at the same time.” The lavish volume features over 300 pages of cross-disciplinary contributions from all over the world, offering an implicit ethnograhic tour by way of color.

DIY Bleach Tie Dye Last summer, we were obsessed with shibori indigo tie dying. No, really . . . we just about dyed anything white in sight.
