Make a Statement: D.I.Y Diva with Kristen Turner

D.I.Y.- better known as Do It Yourself, has been a trend in fashion for a while –yet is on fire RIGHT NOW as it hits mainstream fashion! Now, the powers that be thought it would be cool to get ME- as terrified as I am with DIY, to play with this process to create some fabulous gems.

AND. I . NAILED. IT- nerves and all!

(well not by myself- I had some help!!!!)

On my first installment of D.I.Y. DIVA Cruzearati episode, I head to West Hollywood to link up with my fabulous Curvy Fashionista AND a quick rising star in DIY fashion, from Be Vain or D.I.Y. Trying- Kristen Turner!

MD D.I.Y. DIVA 1: Statement Necklaces: Cruze-aratiTogether, we fashion a One of-a-kind necklace for UNDER TEN DOLLARS! Pretty fabulously, Kristen holds my hand, sometimes literally, as we create magic out of some chains, feathers, some pliers and a HUGE dose of CREATIVITY and IMAGINATION! Kristen Turner showed me how to take an older necklace and with DIY magic, fashion an amazing updated look!

No for reals! Take a Peek at the latest D.I.Y. Diva Episode!

Kristen Turner is a gem, she is patient, and her passion for DIY is infectious! I heart her!  I have my new necklace, even though I was scared throughout the making of this, I HAD A BLAST!
