Types of Artificial Leather

Pleather

Pleather is the term used for a low-cost material that is popular in the process of making items in artificial leather.

Choosing a Necklace That Suits You

Think about the colors you are most likely to say look good on you. Are they warm, bright colors? Or cool blues and soft greens? Gold looks best when paired with warm bright colors, such as red and orange. It also looks fantastic with deep purples. On the other hand, if you tend to wear cool colors such as light blues and greens, silver may be more your style. Beaded necklaces can further complicate things because of the enormous variety of colors. However, as long as you stick with colors you normally wear or colors that complement them you should be fine. If your wardrobe consists of mainly dark colors, a pop of color is also a good option.

Wholesale Snap Jewelry

Wholesale snap jewelry is a specialized type of jewelry that has buttons on it that create the definitive decorations on the item of jewelry. What makes wholesale snap jewelry so different? Those buttons that create the decoration on the piece of jewelry can be “snapped” out of place, and then another button can be “snapped” into place, and thus changing the entire look, or style of the jewelry piece.

This type of jewelry is not going to take the place of fine articles designed to be worn for a formal occasion. Your diamonds, emeralds, and pearls will still be needed for those special evenings, but for your everyday jewelry needs this revolutionary style of necklaces, rings, bracelets, and watches, will let you create the pieces you need without having to buy a lot of different jewelry items.

This type of jewelry comes with many different “buttons” that are designed to interchange with the buttons on the items you have. If you wear a pink outfit on Monday you can place buttons that are appropriately colored to match your pink ensemble, and when you wear a green outfit on Thursday you will be able to wear the same articles of jewelry …

Make Some Simple Things Using Jewelry Wire

  • Funky Beaded Hoop Earrings:
    Thin jewelry wire may not be strong enough to create beaded earrings, but it can be easily reinforced by winding another piece of wire tightly around it in a spiral, so that it looks almost like a spring. Wind the outer piece of wire very tightly until you get to a place where you want to put a bead. Arch the outer wire over the top of the bead so that it is held firmly in place, then carry on tightly spiraling around the inner piece of wire until you get to the place where you want to put the next bead. When the beaded wire is large enough to make the size of hoop you want, use the spiraling wire to secure the two spiraled ends together, making sure that the middle wire has enough excess wire to create the bit which will be threaded through your ear. Put one more bead onto the excess inner wire after the two ends of the hoop have been joined, in order to help to protect you from any potential sharp edges, and then hook the excess wire into a suitable curve to use through your pierced ear
