DIY Hand chain piece.





I wanted to do a chain hand piece like that for a while now, but I never came around it. So, here is my version. I think I will try to do also one in gold with another kind of stones (cristal stones maybe?), there are a lot of different variations of this.


Things you will need:
Two different kind of silver chains (a bigger, and a smaller, darker one)
Silver ring (craft store)
Silver jump rings, a clasp and some kind of stone/bead/gem you like



Instructions:
1- Attach the stone to the ring
2 -Measure the wrist chain
3- Attach the clasp to the wrist chain
4- Measure the top hand chain and attach it to the ring and to the wrist chain
5- Attach theh darker, smaller chain forming a pyramid shade

My personal "inspiration book"

Sometimes the things around you can be the ones that inspire you the most. My surroundings, specially the objects in my room influent me in a very strong way. I believe that, if you surround yourself with a few objects that stimulate your creativity, the ideas start to flow for themselves.

A veces las cosas alrededor de uno son las que mas nos pueden inspirar. El ambiente, y en especial los objetos dentro de mi cuarto me influyen de una manera muy fuerte. Yo creo que, si uno se rodea de  unos pocos objetos especiales, que estimulan la creatividad, las ideas fluyen por si solas.

OOTD - Official Marine







t-shirt: Secondhand
Boots: H&M
Skirt: Garçon
Ring: Flea market

It is getting really cold in Argentina so this is only wearable with a big coat or jacket. But the outfit is very comfortable, even if I feel a little too feminine wearing a little polka dot skirt like that. I really can't wait for july to arrive, so I can finally fly to Germany and enjoy the sun there!

La verdad que se vino el frío, asique esto solo se puede usar con un tapado o una campera grande por encima. Es súper cómodo, a pesar de que me sienta un poco demasiado femenina para mi gusto con esta pollera de puntitos. El anillo es de una feria en San Isidro, lo compre hace mil. Y la remera es de la feria segunda mano "The Good Old Days". La verdad que tiene cosas increíbles, realmente vale la pena visitarla. Siempre me sorprende lo cara que puede estar la ropa en los locales, y mas teniendo en cuenta que la calidad no suele ser buena, asique comprar segunda mano es una buena oportunidad para conseguir ropa original, barata y de una calidad (por lo general) mucho mas alta. Aparte que es divertido tratar de encontrar LA prenda perfecta entre todas las cosas que hay. :)

Black&White - Yin Yang

Basic t-shirt transformation - YIN-YANG



Finally the first post of my "Basic t-shirt transformation" project. I guess not a lot of instructions are needed since the pictures basically explain everything. Use a thicker and a thiner black textile marker in order to be able to fill the "yin yang's" properly in. It takes some time, but once you get used to the drawing you can make it while you watch a movie or something. It is easier than it appears to be and it doesn't have to be perfect in order to look good (mine isn't). The back of de t-shirt has the same print.

Finalmente el primer post sobre mi proyecto de modificación de remeras básicas blancas. Creo que las imágenes dejan bastante en claro como se hace. Conviene usar preferiblemente dos marcador para telas: uno gordo y uno mas finito, para que quede bien prolijo. Tarda su tiempo hacer toda la remera (la parte de atrás también tiene el mismo estampado) pero es mas fácil de lo que parece y una vez que te acostumbras se puede hacer viendo la tele, o una película o lo que sea. No tiene que quedar perfecto para quedar lindo (el mío no lo es).







I feel like the "Yin-Yang" t-shirt is very trendy this season, but here in Argentina I haven't been able to find one (I also didn't look a lot, since I figured it would be very expensive). I cut the neckline of the t-shirt, cropped it and simply rolled up the sleeves.

Siento que la remera de "Yin-Yang" se esta poniendo muy de moda, pero no encontré ninguna en Argentina hasta ahora (tampoco no busque mucho, ya que supuse que si la encontraba iba a estar muy cara y no valía la pena pagar mucho por remera tan fácil de hacer). La remera básica blanca es de la sección de hombres de Falabella y me costo 79 pesos. Le corte el cuello, la acorte un poco y la arremangué.
