D.I.Y BODY CHAIN (SHOULDER)
Hi girls, whatsup, it’s your girl shasha. last week I promised you dopeness this weekend and I am bringing you just that, first of all, I did not post yesterday when I was supposed to because I had such a busy day and I didn’t make it back home on time to work on this week’s post, but here it is. Let me just say that it is my favorite piece of jewelry already and I know you guys will love it too. I was watching “Jerseylicious” last week Friday and Olivia had this beautiful body chain on around her shoulders and I realized I needed to own one, so I went online, googled it, studied it closely and thought of a way to make it. My philosophy is, “If you can’t find it or afford it, make it”. Nobody looks at brands anyway, by that I mean; no one will lift up your shirt and make sure that it is an original you are wearing. If it looks good, feels good, you might as well show it off, and how awesome would it be to wear something by “you”. I own many of the items I have done myself, so when people ask me, where did you get this? I say I made it, then I brag about it. You can get the exact same feeling too, so let’s get started.
WHAT YOU NEED:
– Chain (2meters or 1.5)
– Necklace hook thing **Picture below
English is not my first language so there are words I don’t know in English but do in my other languages. So when I give something a funny name, just forgive me and look at the picture or you can tell me what it’s called. The chain you can get at any craft shop for 90ksh a piece. By the way it used to be 70Ksh but it has gone up.
Measure the chain around your neck, and note that the same measurement of your neck will be the same as the one for your shoulder, or you can just measure. Then join the neckpiece, for the shoulder, you can join the chain and slide it in to wear.
This is very crucial, Measure the first middle chain while the neckpiece and shoulder piece is on you, then use that measurement for others and this can be done with the body chain off. With every middle chain, as it goes upward, increase the size by about an inch or so. Since I am not good with numbers and guessing, I increased by 6 hoops each and the difference between each chain is also 6 hoops.
Try it on and if you would like to add more middle chains, just mark the area with your finger, twist the chain to unhook it and you have your next size.
THEN YOU ARE DONE!
IT IS ALSO TWO ACCESSORIES IN ONE AND THIS IS HOW YOU CAN CHANGE IT UP
– Please do your manicure after, not before. This chain can be mean
– Twist the chain to separate it or unhook it
– If you don’t have pliers, do not worry one bit. You can unhook the chain with your hands and close it back up with your teeth or scissors.
– Keep trying it on regularly as you do it, so you don’t get lost
– For more vavavoom, you can do two shoulders and have like a fashionably mini vest.
– Practice makes perfect
I hope I did not disappoint. You can wear this piece with a dress, especially a strapless dress, a corset, even a dress or top with arms, you just place it and it looks very good. Please do share this with friends, and let’s spread fashion tips. Thumbs up if you like my new hairdo, It actually makes me look 20. I feel grown, I feel my age.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING
