How to Make Your Own Jewelry

It's actually a lot easier than you realize to make your own jewelry and it's certainly a lot cheaper.
If you are even slightly creative and enjoying crafts, then jewelry making could be a great hobby that you do for yourself and for family and friends.
I've made necklaces and bracelets to match outfits for special occasions for myself and also for my closest friends. It's actually a really personal way to give a gift.

Here are some basic tips:
  • If you see a piece of jewelry that you like, try and either take a photo or draw a picture of it, so you can base your design around it later. (I didn't say copy it exactly).
  • Find a good place to source your materials. There are some great bead and jewelry shops tucked away that sale a wide range of beads and thread materials to choose from. Even though some of the fancier beads can still work out to be expensive, it's still a fraction of the price of buying it ready made.
  • You don't need to invest in a lot of jewelry making equipment but you will need wire to thread on to and clasps for closing.
  • Ask in the jewelry shops for advice about basic tools to get you started.
  • Most importantly - have fun. Play around with colors and textures and be adventurous. You can always undo necklaces and re-use the beads somewhere else.

slight hesitating on driving at 2000rpm and low idle speed 650rpm

Do you drive a lot, and often at the same speed? I had a long commute with no traffic and did this for years, and started getting a stutter/hesitation at a certain speed. I realized that it didn't happen if I changed my cruising speed slightly. It turned out that my throttle position sensor had gotten a worn spot in it from being at the same place all the time. I changed it out and the problem vanished. Just something to consider.

blower motor how to change it

What model car? Do you mean the heater blower or the blower on the emission control system? If you mean the heater blower, are you certain that the problem is not the resistor rather than the blower? The resistor is a more common problem, and is cheaper and a LOT easier to replace.

where to buy taurus stereo spring clamps

Actually, if you go to your local salvage/junkyard, you will probably find them at lot easier and cheaper that going to the dealership to order them, which is probably the only other place you'll be able to obtain them. In fact, many times a junkyard will give you a part that is that "insignificant" (to them, I mean). I wouldn't think that they'd charge your much more than $5 for them though. Hope this proves to be of use and have a great evening!
