Happy New Month! Welcome to the "ember" quarter of the year. So I am starting a Fashion DIY channel, I will always find a way to link it here on the blog, so watch out! Today, I will be showing a practical demonstration on how I transformed my bronze hoop earring, using African print "Ankara"
I have had this bronze earring for 5 years now, it started wearing off, then I tot to myself why discard it? Just transform it! So I got some pieces left from the Ankara material I made a dress from, and Viola a new earring was born!
  • Ankara fabric (Quite Small to go round your earring or pieces from your tailors shop) make sure to select the pieces with lovely, regular pattern.
  • A hoop earring
  • Uhu gum (a garment friendly adhesive)
  • Scissor


  • Cut through the fabric vertically, long enough to go round the earring, 
  • Cut the tip of the already cutout vertical fabric into an inverted triangle shape, this is to make it tip smaller and easier to start wrapping at the beginning part of the hoop earring.
  • Apply little amount of Uhu Gum to the tip of the fabric and start wrapping tightly and neatly,
  • making sure the fabric overlaps neatly on the ends of each wrap
  • When you get to the end of the hoop, apply the Uhu Gum and neatly seal the end, use a Scissors to neatly cut and effect the finishing.

Happy New Month dearies, it is the month of February already! I use to think January is the slowest month in the year, but January just went by so fast. I can say this is the fastest January I have seen so far.

So I had a strategy meeting with the founder of Styled by Beeh and we chose a beautiful and serene location for this meeting; THE TEA ROOM LAGOS.


Hi lovelies, it feels good to be back. I have been away for a little too long in the east, Anambra State Nigeria precisely for my late grandma's burial. I was so busy that i couldn't blog, but am back, so watch this SPACE  for sights and sounds from the east
