Both YSL and Chanel showed chunk geode cuffs for fall 2012. The former fashion house opted for emerald green stones while the later went for purple amethyst. Do you like the look of Wonder Woman-style cuffs? Would you rather have them in green or purple?
Which do you prefer - green YSL or purple Chanel?
At the brand’s fall 2012 show, YSL turned calla lilies into surrealist jewelry. Did you ever think you could make a fake flower look this chic? Read on to find out how to make your own - it’s easier than you might think!
Using pliers, wrap the end of the jewelry wire tightly around the top of the flower’s stem, making 3-4 coils so that it is secure.
Bend the wire down to follow the stem and cut it with your wire cutters so that it is about 1/4” longer than the stem in length.
Tightly wrap the other end of the wire to the base of the stem. (If there is any extra wire, snip it off.)
Fold the flower around your wrist to bend it into the desire shape. Note: You will still be able to flex a little bit after you’re finished so it doesn’t have to be too precise. This is just to make sure that your tape goes on in the correct general direction.
Starting at the top, wrap the wire and flower stem together using electrical tape.
Now wrap over the electrical tape with your floral or masking tape. This step is important for two reasons. One is because electrical tape’s texture is too rubbery for spray paint to stick properly to. The other is so that your entire bracelet (flower & stem) will have the finish once it is painted.
Your flower should now look like this.
In a well-ventilated area (we went outside for this part), evenly spray all sides of the bracelet with paint.
