DIY: Faux Clay Malachite

faux malachite

Last week Jenny posted a round up of some of her favorite faux malachite DIY's HERE. Most of them were paint based, and it got me thinking- HEY, I can do that! And quickly too.

Look for instructions for both the necklace and earrings later in the week! Have a great … [Read more...]

A reader implemented an idea she got from reading this blog! Happens to be that the reader, Sally Cohen, is also my daughters dance teacher and has a degree in design (more emoji!).
