Owl & Leaves Clay Necklace | Chic Steals

This necklace is made using epoxy clay and decorated with gold leaf. I’ve never tried epoxy clay, but it seems pretty straightforward to use. Chic Steals has a great tutorial on how to use the clay and other tips and tricks - I also love the way she created a layered necklace in one - so much easier than trying to stack chains that always end up tangled!

Prada Inspired Rhinestone Earrings | Chic Steals

When I had my stall, the most popular items were my cabochon studs. They were the first things to sell and people kept asking for more! The lovly thing about them is that there are tons of colours and sizes available, meaning you can get a pair to match most outfits. I love the added glitz of the rhinestone surround, it makes these earrings even more fun. This tutorial also shows you how to make your own cabochons which though might be a bit expensive to start with (i.e. getting a mold, sculpey, etc) I’m sure that you will end up using it and making tons of them in no time!

7 January Essentials That Will Revamp Any Outfit | Chic Steals

I’ll be the first to admit, I am a huge sucker for trends. I know all the magazines say that you should go for classic, timeless pieces, but who could go past mullet skirts or arm parties when everyone else is wearing them and looking fab?! Haha! Anyways, Chic Steals has a brilliant round up of current trends that won’t cost you an arm and a leg to quickly update your look. I’m not a huge fan of leopard print but I’m all for belting things and florals are a main stay in my wardrobe. Next on my wants list is a fab pair of coloured jeans. I’m thinking a pretty pale pink or raspberry?!

Jennifer Behr Inspired Spiked Turban | Chic Steals
Studs! Spikes! Studs & Spikes! Haha! I’m crazy for Studs & Spikes!
Oh, sorry bout that. Got a little excited there. What a super cute head wrap. I would totally wear this irregardless of what others thought. Because this is one super tough head wrap. I think I need to bite the bullet and just buy some studs & spikes so I can start making some of these crafts I’m so in love with!

Miu Miu Rhinestone Embellished Flats | Chic Steals
Sometimes I feel like a Home Shopping Network lady - ‘That’s right shoppers! Make these Miu Miu flats and you can save yourself $730! That’s right, over $700 in savings!’ Haha!
Anyway, yes, you can save quite a bit making these yourself! I’m a flats girl - anything slightly higher than three centimetres and I’m a cripple so I like creative ideas for flats. I really like the pink pair.. I’m pretty sure I have an old pair of pink pointy flats in my cupboard. Remember back in the day when really pointy shoes were popular? Hmm, maybe they should stay in the cupboard still, and I’ll buy a pair that are less pointy. Those things were dangerous - both for my feet and any stray shins that crossed my path!
Also, check out the rest of Chic Steals.. it’s chock full of loveliness!
