Love Knot Jewelry

Jenny asks…

I really love this engagement ring i found online, but?

I found the perfect engagement ring for myself online. BUT, it is a “celtic knot” ring. Is it okay that I’m not celtic? Or would it make no sense to have a celtic knot ring for the rest of my life? What do you think? I’m just a bit confused.. Thank you!! =)

LoveKnots answers:

There is no rule about having to be ‘celtic’ to wear a celtic knot. Nor are there any rules about what kind of ring can serve as an engagement ring. There is also no rule as to how long you wear your engagement ring, many women only wear their engagement rings occasionally, just wearing their wedding bands.
I know a lady who just got engaged and had her ring custom made with 2 celtic knots on either side of it.
It’s just a piece of jewellery, you can choose whatever you like.

David asks…

Where’s the best place for jewellery repairs (UK)?

I have a Silver necklace with amber twisty bits on it. It was my late grandmothers and I received it without a fastening bit on it.

I was wondering how much it would cost to get a bit put on, and whats the best UK high street jewellery shop to go to?

Oh, and I have another necklace with a thin chain which is alwys getting knotted up, whats the best way to store it in my jewellery wrap?

Ideas for BRATZ birthday party?

Any ideas ( even crazy ones) will be helpful!

LoveKnots answers:

Heres some
Rock and roll with rad clothes, shoes and purses at a Bratz theme party. These Bratz dolls definitely have a passion for fashion. The guests at a Bratz party might too want to dress the part and have activities such as a Spa Day to fit the Bratz theme party.

Invitations – Find lots of Bratz clip art around the Web to make your own party invitation, or feature a stunning picture of your birthday girl with her own favorite Bratz doll.

Food – Cloe is a vegetarian who loves banana smoothies. Jade goes for Sushi and strawberry smoothies. Edgy Sasha stokes up with power bars and blueberry smoothies while regal Jasmin favors Thai, Mediterranean… Anything ethnic and apple smoothies. Use these for inspiration as you choose your party foods.

Sheet cake will do. Add your birthday message and a few flamboyant flowers in the theme colors for decoration or get artistic and create a Bratz picture with colored frosting. You can go all out and order Bratz decorations for the cake

Kids of all ages will enjoy a Bratz “makeover” with flavored lip gloss, glittery nail polish and a bit of makeup, or let them create their own high fashion jewelry using pipe cleaners, string and beads in cool shapes and colors. Add a bit of glitter for eye popping rings, bracelets and necklaces. You can make pins by using the pipe cleaners as a base, adding beads and securing them with diaper pins or sturdy safety pins!

Your party girl will probably have her own selection of hot tunes to play, but Pink, Mary J. Blige, and Brandy are all good choices that will keep you from embarassing moments.

MAKE AND TAKE BODY GLITTER
Girls can mix their own body glitter with this simple recipe.
You’ll Need
cup aloe vera gel
fine polyester glitter (any color, available at most craft stores)
One small cosmetic travel container for each girl -the kind you might
put hand cream in with a screw top.
To Make: Fill the containers 1/4 full with aloe gel.
Pour a small amount of glitter in the container. Provide wood craft sticks or plastic coffee stir straws to the girls for mixing. Add more gel until the mix is complete. Close the lid. Decorate sticker labels with gel pens and attach it to the container

DANA’S SUGAR SHOE GAME
Play like Hot Potato – Before the party pick up a wild fashion shoe at
a thrift store. Let the birthday girl help you “fix it up” with glitter and
other accessories.
To play: Players form a circle. The “Sugar Shoe” is passed from player
to player while Hip-Hop music is playing. When the music stops, the
player who has the shoe is out and sits in the center or takes control
of the music. Stops should be made frequently so the game moves
quickly and players will not be out for a long period.

BRATZ PARTY CRAFTS
Use stick on jewels, glitter glue and gel pens to make any of the
following items:
Decorate picture frames and take a digital or Polaroid
snapshot for the girls to take home.
Use small canvas bags (craft store) to make purses.
Decorate a small wood or foam framed mirror.
Decorate pre-cut foam door hangers (craft store).

Pixiez Craft
Add a Bratz Fashion Pixiez craft to your party by making a fairy wing necklace. It’s easy with craft foam, plastic lacing lanyard, pony beads and glitter glue.Before the party, cut 2 inch fairy wings ,similar to a butterfly using the craft foam. Make a hole in the top with a hole punch. The girls
will lace the lanyard through the hole and tie a knot. Then, they can add
a few beads and glitters glue for pixie dust.

Laura asks…

I want to design a silver celtic/gaelic ring?

Where do you think I would find the best information on celtic culture and where would I be able to translate english to irish or scottish gaelic correctly? And information on celtic knots?

Thank you

Love,

Chloe

LoveKnots answers:

The National Museum of Ireland in Dublin has ancient Celtic jewelry. You can prob find pix on the web.

The Book of Kells (again, pix on the web) with its incredible artwork will surely inspire you.
