The Best Polyvore Alternative for Fashion Lovers and Bloggers, Etsy Sellers

 

The Best Polyvore Alternative for Fashion Lovers and Bloggers, Etsy Sellers

By BluKatDesign on Etsy

 

Early last year the very popular fashion Social Media site Polyvore was sold and shut down suddenly. This  left a lot of us fashion lovers, bloggers and Etsy sellers who loved this platform  without the ability to make sets by clipping favorite articles of clothing or accessories. There were some sites that claimed the would get a “clipper” soon or phone apps that kind of worked but are a pain to use. Then I stumbled across URSTYLE, so far I have found this site to work almost identical as Polyvore! I only wish we could find our followers and favorite designers now! Click on photos to take you to URSTYLE and for set details:

Modern Upcycled Jewelry Made From Electrical Resistors

Modern Upcycled Jewelry Made From Electrical Resistors!

My latest upcycling project is jewelry made from electrical resistors I’ve had for years. I finally came up with some unique ways of repurposing resistors on earrings and statement necklaces with a fun modern look. The necklace is super comfortable to wear with an 18″ steel cord, gray resistors and shimmery gray pearls. The earrings are fun, twirly and fairly lightweight. So far I make the earrings in orange, gray and turquoise, you will most definitely get noticed wearing these!

This last design has no resistors but came up with the idea while making the resistor earrings with interlacing loops, these look like planets:
