Spring Where Art Thou?

Spring Poetry, a few words that express my thoughts.

Spring oh spring, where art thou? your essence follows my trail, but as I turn with excitement at the dawn of morning all I see is snow, but no!? why have thou not arrived? for your beloved awaits your arrival.

The shattering cold still haunts me and enters my bones and weakens my soul, I await for the day that cold turns into a warmth that enters my bones and strengthens my soul. Pure bliss is what your glorious rays give me and nourishes my body and soul, you give me hope, hope is what fills me and an exhilarating new reality is what you give me

Diy Belt Choker/ Bracelet

Here is another diy choker, except this choker is made out of a belt and can also be worn as a bracelet.(2 in 1 for all you diy lovers)

Grab a old medium sized or small sized belt, you can get any colour, I chose navy blue. It’s because we are going to splatter some acrylic paint on it to give a pretty artsy flare, and the navy blue backdrop is suited, because it’s dark and will make the colours pop more! Adding the pop of colourful paint is optional, but it definitely makes the piece more of a unique statement piece.

Step 1-2: Get your belt and cut it down to about 6-7 inches. Then get some acrylic paints, fabric paints or nail polish you can go with whatever you prefer or have.Make sure you have a newspaper or anything that you don’t mind getting paint all over, cause it can get messy!

Step 3-4: Grab a paint brush or nail polish brush and start splattering. Although I did use all of them, I did find that the nail polish did give a more pigmented, vibrant look. Get a ribbon clasp/ crimp closure and use pliers to clamp it down between the belt.

Step 5: Last but not least, get some chain and attach it to the closure with pliers, and attach the necklace hook, and there you have it voila! It can be worn as choker and bracelet, the photos below, will show the different ways it can be worn.
