Materials - - 2 ft of 22 gauge metal, silver, or gold wire, - 1 Semi- precious stone bead of your choice, - A ring mandrel €“ used to form rings of your desired size - Wire cutter - Flat nose pliers - A good grip. Follow these easy steps -- Begin by wrapping one end of the wire around the Mandrel four times. - Keeping the wire band wrapped tightly around the ring form, string the bead through the long end of the wire and wrap it three times tightly around the 4-layered band, at the end closest to the beads hole.- Continue to wrap the wire four times beneath the stone, around the wire going through the bead. This will create a platform where the stone will sit.- Then, again tightly wrap the wire three times around the 4 -layered band closest the beads hole. - Finish by cutting the end of the wire and pushing it flat with your pliers so that it doesn€™t poke youBy the time you master this wire craft your hands will be blinging and you€™ll be in the market for a new jewelry box.

We're always so worried about stepping out in the latest style of dress, or the new 'it' bag and we go through pains to make sure that our hair is coiffed in the latest style and our make-up is applied just right. It seems that we often overlook a just as important part of our day. Bedtime. If you think about it, we spend about half our day either asleep or lounging and why so many of us are satisfied to be wearing just an over-sized tee and and an ex's old boxers while doing so is beyond me. Now, there's a way to stay comfortable and carefree while having a casual night at home and in bed. Stellina is our answer to luxuriously soft sleepwear that's practical, comfortable and with just the right amount of sex appeal added in. While silk teddies and lacy undergarments are fun for that 'special' night, Stellina is perfect for every night with their sumptuously soft bamboo pieces and cotton pajama sets and bathrobes. Besides the high-quality, super soft fabrics (I love bamboo knits!), Stellina further enhances it's sleepy-time appeal with feminine pastel hues and cuddly whites and creams. Pieces hug curves in all the right places without being tight and low v-necks and scoop necks, as well as sexy hem lengths look sensuous while still providing enough coverage. So put away that ratty flannel sleep shirt and click on the slideshow to see Stellina's must-have sleepwear pieces!
