Bold, Colorful Graphic Design Jewelry Made From Duct Tape!

If you love color, BluKatDesign on Etsy is your place!  I have been having so much fun with my latest projects using duct tape to make vibrant graphic statement necklaces and earrings. Nothing in my shop is mass produced so you will not see these designs on anyone else! Your fiends will freak out when you tell them it is duct tape! The simple clean modern design will go with today’s styles or pick a retro print for fun! Click on photos to take you to my Etsy store.  Most of the designs are reversible; they have different patterns on either side so you are really getting two necklaces or earrings in one:

Mandala Art Jewelry – Colorful Necklaces and Earrings on Etsy

Mandala Art Jewelry- 1  1/14″ Pendant

Mandala Art Jewelry – Colorful Necklaces and Earrings on Etsy

Mandala art jewelry by BluKatDesign on Etsy. Mandalas to me are like yummy eye candy, so colorful, I just want one in every color of the rainbow or Chakra! The colors can also be energizing, soothing and healing. I love making them into glass tile pendants; the glass domes I use make them really pop out in almost 3-D. I wear mine all of the time with a simple stainless steel necklace cord like Abby, The Vintage Inspired Passionista is above but pretty ribbon cords or ball chains are available too.  Casual and unisex, they look great with jeans and a T-shirt.  Great for New Agers, healers, Modern Bohemians, teens, artists or anyone who needs a pop of color! Three sizes are available:  1″, 1 1/4″ ( the most popular) and  the largest 1 1/2 ” is more like a statement pendant or medallion. Lightweight mandala earrings that are made out of wood discs and also magnet sets are available also in my handmade jewelry store.

Shopping In My Own Closet

It’s a little early but I am in the spring cleaning mode. Started with the garage last weekend, this weekend it is my closet. I pulled about seven pairs of shoes out that I never wear and donated them. That cleared out one shoe rack and I gave it to Dennis  so his shoes wouldn’t be in a heap (He’s the shoe guy!) They say to get rid of clothes you never wear after a year but I always hold on to them a lot longer….for years,  and so glad I did! I found some cozy warm wool leggings to wear around the house and  a nice warm wool sweater that fits me better now! I also found some cool summer tops that just were too clingy to wear the last couple of summers but silly me I didn’t even think to try  pairing them with my favorite wool cardigan for winter! The chartreuse really brightens up the gray  plus I have matching filigree disc earrings:

clean out your closet!

Fun finds right inside my closet!

Here is another cool top I didn’t wear because it is kind of backless and a little too clingy but looks great with my favorite cardigan! Add some bright sparkly colored earrings and I have a new outfit!
