Tips on taking care of wigs

Buy the right products to take care of your wig. There are special combs, brushes, shampoos, conditioners and even special hair sprays for wigs. Have a wig stand for each of your wigs. Never brush a wig with a regular brush or comb because it will shorten its life.
Resist the temptation to trim your wig. Unlike your real hair, mistakes won't grow back. Instead, take it to a wig shop where professionals will do that job for you.
Reduce the number of times you wash the wigs by making sure your hair is clean before you put on a wig. There are wig caps on the market if that is not always possible.
Even if you keep your natural hair clean, you should wash your wig about every two weeks if you wear it daily. You may find that you should wash it more frequently because of the styling products you use or the weather. Always wash your wig in cool water and use only the special shampoo you purchased for your wig.
Always store your wig on a wig stand to keep it fresh for the next wearing. If you put it away, never do so in a box or a plastic bag, unless you are traveling, as it will deteriorate and take on an unpleasant odor.
Keep your wig away from high temperatures because heat will damage it. If you are barbecuing or cooking a meal, either take the wig off or stand away from the direct fire.
Always brush your wig when it is dry and never use a hairdryer. If time permits, allow your wig to dry naturally.
Use a small amount of hand soap and a toothbrush to remove makeup that may have accumulated on your wig. Be careful not to pull hair out of the wig while doing this.

British Jewelry

It has to be said that 2012 has been a great year to be British. The Diamond Jubilee proved a glorious success and now the London 2012 Olympics look to go down in history for all the right reasons. It is an unprecedented moment for the British Isles, and what better time than to celebrate some of the best of British jewelry than now? One society though seems to have already beaten us to the punch, with a keen eye for what makes our particular brand of luxury so British. Walpole is a non-profit organization that brings together the best of British Luxury, with the aim of furthering and maintaining the quality it represents. It's not just about jewelry either, with members including BAFTA, Burberry, Orient Express, Royal Opera House, Harrods and many more.

Instructions of making your own jump rings

1. Take hold of the tag end of the wire and put it in the center of the ring maker or round nosed pliers.
2. Firmly grasp the wire with the pliers. Wrap the wire against the pliers’ nose.
3. Continue wrapping around the nose prong to complete a wire circle.
4. Take the wire circle from the prong.
5. Nip carefully the circle off from the length of the wire. Use the flush cut pliers or wire nippers.
6. Use the flat jeweler's file, if there are jagged edges on the cut wire.
7. Make the ends of the wire circle secured; make them meet end to end.
Now you have a completed jump ring. You can open it to connect an element to your jewelry, then close it again. Put it on the piece of your jewelry. Use pliers to pick up the ring on one side of the opening. With your free hand, pick up the other pliers and close it on the ring’s other side. To open it, you push your right hand away from you and your left hand towards you. You do the opposite if you want to close it. But you may need to do it twice to make sure that the jump ring is closed completely.
