I'm sure you've noticed the studs popping up all over today's apparel, shoes, and handbags. They often have a darkened patina. I have a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs flats that feature an assortment of studs on the toe, and let me tell you they are worth every penny.

Did you know you can create this look yourself? I opened up the M&J Trimming site the other day to search for some buttons, when I saw these featured on their main page.

They are called Italian Sew On Rhinestones and you can get them in sets of 6, 12, or 18, depending on the style and size, for $10 - $12. It could be painful for the wallet to get too carried away with these, but think of the impact a few sets of well placed studs could make. I'd love to see someone give these a try!
