DIY Embellishment

Details usually make an item for me, I love added studs, spikes, glitter, sequins, oversized buttons and more. I am certainly a magpie when it comes to clothing, anything that shines or sparkles always catches my eye. I also enjoy being creative and spending time customizing my not so one of a kind items, to make them unique to me.

One of the easiest ways to add a little bit of glamour and punk to any item is through simple to use studs. I love gold, so I purchase some gold rivets, in different sizes and shapes, and route out some simple items from my closet and start working away.

I find plenty of different types of studs HERE through Amazon, I go for the rivet style as these are the ones with two prongs that you poke through the fabric, and then using a small pliers, press the rivets down flat.

As you can see below, I have done a lot a my denim items and some shirts, this year I may be tackling some leather items in my closet…watch this space.
