As Seen on TV: Watch for the Quartz Dagger Necklace on the Vampire Diaries

Friday, November 4, 2016

Are you guys fans of the show The Vampire Diaries? We are really excited over at CY Design Studio this week, because one of our jewelry pieces is featured on this season of the show. Our Quartz Dagger necklace is shown above on Allison Scagliotti. The crystals are really working for you, girl!

Here is a short synopsis of the show from Wikipedia:

"The Vampire Diaries follows the life of Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), who falls for a handsome century-old vampire named Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley). Their lives grow more and more complicated as Stefan's vicious older vampire brother Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) also returns to town with a vendetta against his brother and the Founding Families's descendants. However Damon quickly becomes their greatest ally in their fight against evil. The series is set in a fictional town heavily charged with supernatural history, known as Mystic Falls, Virginia. The series was renewed for an eighth and final season which premiered on October 21, 2016."

So make sure to tune in TONIGHT on the CW at 7/8c, and see if you can spot our necklace again! If you catch the necklace you can even send us photo @cydesignstudio on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

yes....   I'm obsessed.   In search for some simple Halloween printables and DIY to add to my decor this year, I've rounded up 13 of my favorite freebies:

When did you first start your craft? I made my first batch of soap in 2012 from a soap kit.

What made you decide on handmade soap? My love for handmade soap began years ago as a girl when I visited a family-owned farm where they made and sold their own handmade herbal soaps.  I was fascinated by the process and the beautiful result. They smelled amazing and looked so pretty in soap dishes, and made my skin feel so soft.  So it became something I had always wanted to do.
