If you love handmade jewelry this is the blog post for you! We're breaking down the steps of how to make wire wrapped earrings with a bauble in the center

You'll Need:

-Two earrings rounds

-Pearls

-Two jade beads

-Wrapping wire

-Wire cutters

Start by looping the wire (about a forearms length worth) around the base of the earring round.

-99

Pull the wire so it is sticking straight up in the air

-100

String a pearl on the wire and wrap it twice around the earring round

-101

Continue this until you have made it all the way around the earring round. Wrap your excess wire around the earring hook to secure the beads in place. Make sure to pull the beads tight to the round so they don't shift during use.

-102

To add a bead to the center of the earring you should string wire through the bottom of your bead and loop it through the hook dangling from the base of the earring round

-105

Repeat the process and you will have a pair of handmade earrings!

Don't they just look fabulous on!

Have you ever walked into the Vino and van Gogh studio and wondered where all the jewelry came from? I mean, a wall tacked with earrings and mannequins draped in shot gun shell necklaces don't just appear over night!

The truth is, all of the fun accessories are made at my home studio. Want a tour?

This is where the magic happens!

I added life to this desk by painting old song sheets from my college sorority on it. I love the pop of color it adds to the room!

Plants are a MUST in my workspace. They bring life to the room and make it feel more homey

DIY: Quote Painting

This DIY art project is simple and cost effective, yet incredibly stylish and funky!

What you'll need:

-canvas

-brushes

-acrylic paint in your choice of colors

-sticky letters (you can find these at Home Depot)

-A quote (the shorter the better!)

-gold metallic paint

Grab a canvas and paint something abstract on it. It could be drips, splatters, brush strokes, or a hodge-podge of all three! The most importance step in this process is to let the paint dry completely. This way your sticky letters won't peel off any paint

-3

Next, take out your sticky letters and loosely arrange them to form your quote

-4

-5

Now take your gold paint and lightly paint all over the canvas and letters. Allow the paint to dry and peel off your letters

-7

And Voila! You now have a sassy, unique painting that will spread good vibes wherever it is hung

How to Paint (or Draw) a cute little santa. This is really easy: just follow these simple steps

You will Need:
Paper & Pen (or Pencil) OR Canvas & Black Paint

Red, Green, White, Pink (or mix Red & White Paint), and any flesh tone.

1. Make a roundish puffy cloud shape near the top of the canvas or page.

2. Make more of a long ovalish puffy cloud shape 1/3 of the way from the bottom of the canvas.

3. Make two little black eyes beneath your oval cloud

4. Make an ovalish button nose slightly lower than the round eyes (yet centered between the eyes)

5. Make a wave shape on the left and then on the right beneath the nose to form the top of the mustache.

6. Make a swoop starting from underneath the nose to make the bottom line for the mustache.

7. Render in two half circles peeping out from the top line of the mustache.

8. Draw in Santa's shoulders on either side of the mustache.
