BLINGY, BLINGIER, BLINGIEST!DO YOU WANT A DESIGNER LOOK THAT IS ALL YOURS—AND TO EXPRESS YOUR CREATIVITY AND HAVE SOME FUN?
All that glitters doesn’t have to be gold . . . and diamonds (even the fake ones!) can be a girl’s— or a boy’s—best friend. With Mark Montano’s step-by-step guidance you, too, can let loose your inner fashionista and make fabulous, unique accessories to complement your entire wardrobe!
Think outside the box when it comes to materials, and check through your recycling to find treasures In the Bin. Show people your New Mexico style, and make a papier-mâché Zigzag Turquoise Cuff out of newspaper. When the plastic store bags start crawling out from under the sink, tame them with a Fused Plastic Flower Cuff. Make the tree-mendous Nature’s Bling Bag decorated with branches sliced thin. Or Twine Not try the hardware store for some colored twine—and pick up some aluminum flashing to find out why Tin Is “In”? From punk to retro, from bobby pins to safety pins, with more than 150 projects there’s something for everyone, whether you want to glam it up Hollywood-style or go ultra-sophisticated like a newly crowned princess.
