About

Home Made with a 'sparkly' twist

A few years back, inherited all my sewing supplies including a never used 'embroidery machine' from my mother. She passed away from cancer. We were going to work together on this new adventure together, she never had a chance. What she left behind is priceless! No one knew that such a library of personal notes, books, thread, fabric etc was collected and stored in her room. After much time reading, practicing and sometimes shedding a tear, am ready to create and sell. There are occasions when I am at the machine, my hands start moving 'gracefully' like hers always did over a project. Mistakes will still be made but that is what makes the phrase 'Home Made'.... describing that each item is unique in its own way.

Everyday am still learning/exploring new techniques, ideas and just having fun in the creation of it all! The people I have met, along the way, each with their own special talent...very humbling! I hope to be as gifted as they, someday.

My workshop is like a 'Disneyland' to me with so many ideas aka vision. They all have one thing in common...... SPARKLE! Once created into something amazing, that item too will sparkle like no other.....a feature that no one else saw but me in the beginning.

**************************************************************************************************
Most 'lace' items are created with the THREE 'S'...strength...stability...sparkle! In other words, they may be stitched on either tulle, chiffon or organza material. This is more work but is worth it when you see the finished piece. Doing this, they are able to hold their 'true shape' without giving in to 'curling' or 'warping' when hung. For some, the FSL (the true 'free standing') technique works very well even after multiple washings/endurance tests. Once a 'prototype' (aka new design) has been stitched out, it is tested in a most grueling way before making the decision how it will be stitched out. This way I am confident that you will have something special that 'will last' and stay beautiful!
**************************************************************************************************
Have a certain 'thread' color in mind for a lace item ....ASK! From solid.....to.... variegated (one color but at different levels of color)....to..... multi (three colors or more) ......to .....neon......pastel (light) to dark colors......MY INVENTORY IS VAST!
**************************************************************************************************
The 'lace' items are washable...if stand alone, hand wash, warm water. If appliqued, turn garment inside out, gentle cycle and hang to dry. Iron, low heat/steam, if needed, when dry, from the back side.
*************************************************************************************************
Care information for jewelry...

Avoid hard or sharp surfaces. Keep in mind, the 'glass' pieces will break on any hard surface.

Remove when exposed to harsh chemicals which would include the swimming pool that is treated with chlorine etc.

In regards to sonic cleaners w/cleaning solution or pre-treated polishing cloths...avoid if the jewelry piece has any of the following....pearls....turqouise.....bone...coral...or other soft stones. The colors and finish may have an adverse affect. Any 'glued' item also cannot be placed in the sonic cleaner. The glue will be broken down due to the vibrations from within.
*************************************************************************************************
Cleaning information for jewelry....

Copper plated beads will darken or develop that aged look over time. There are several ways to clean copper. You choose which works best for you....

1. apply ketchup on a soft cloth, rub gently and rinse with white vinegar/water solution. Than pat dry with a clean soft cloth.
2. place the jewelry in a bath of lemon juice with a dash of salt. Move around for 2-3 minutes than pat dry with a soft clean cloth.
3. place the jewelry in a white vinegar bath. Move around for 2-3 minutes than pat dry with a clean soft cloth.
At any time repeat the cleaning process if the first time does not give you the desired look.

Magnetic jewelry....Use a mild soap*/water bath, move around for 2-3 minutes, rinse in tepid water and dry with a clean soft cloth.

*I like Dawn original or Dove original (3 drops per cup of water). It will penetrate within the stones/beads to remove oil and grime without harming the finish. I then follow with a vinegar bath before drying with a clean soft cloth.
*************************************************************************************************
Skin turn 'green' from copper? This affects some people but not all. There is nothing wrong with you or the jewelry piece in question. When copper comes in contact with the skin, it chelates with the exposure to humidity, perspiration etc. For some, this natural process occurs faster than it can be absorbed 'thru the skin.
*************************************************************************************************
What is 'gauss?

The term for magnet strength interpreted as the surface reading or the potential of the magnetic material in a closed circuit.

When purchasing your new magnetic jewelry, you do want to ensure the strength of the magnetic beads is powerful enough to penetrate the skin. Make sure to wear 800 gauss or higher. Any less and you may not receive the full benefits provided by the magnets. There is no need to be concerned about the gauss being too high as magnets are safe with no side effects.
**************************************************************************************************
If you are unable to wear 'therapy' jewelry during the day (restrictions at work etc) wear them during the night instead. When your body is at rest. The magnetic strength actually will work better for many allowing the whole body be more responsive at a relaxed state.
*************************************************************************************************
Therapy collars for pets work the same way for them as for humans. When considering the size... measure with a seamstress tape, string or something flexible, pull taunt without applying pressure/wrinkling on the skin. Add 1 1/2" to 2" ...and... that is the length you need. You want to have the 'therapy collar' to rest comfortably on the neck with little restraint and also below the everyday collar. *Keep in mind this collar attaches with magnets so do not try and grab the 'therapy collar' when controlling your pet. It will let go.
*************************************************************************************************
All bracelets/collars/necklaces are made with a 1/4" +/- variable in length.
*************************************************************************************************
PLEASE NOTE....with any item, they are meant for decoration/embellishment/alternative therapy purposes only. They are NOT toys for pets, vulnerable adults or children. Keep lace items away from heat and flames. Not responsible for choking, any type of injury, fire etc. from ANY ITEM in my store.
