I made two necklaces this past weekend. The first one was a bracelet but I thought it would be cute as a necklace.
All I did was take the beads out and out a gold chain around it. So easy! I love recycling.The second one was an inspiration from a designer Molly Hanna. I saw her designs in the J.Crew catalogue and instantly fell in love.
These two necklaces were being sold for $495 and is sold out. So I thought, hey, it doesn't look that hard... So I wanted to just experiment with it first so I made a "trial" one using jewelry I already had at home.
And the best thing is, it didn't cost me a penny! I just gathered all the jewelry, beads, hair clips, earrings, flower brooches I had that I don't wear and just played around and put together what I thought matched well together. Then I just super glued it on a black felt and super glued the black ribbon. No sewing was necessary, yay! I can't wait to make another one but this time buying some beads and jewels and I'll hand sew the beads on a fabric instead. And a photographer Amber Weimer took this picture of me wearing the necklace for one of her projects. Kinda embarrassed posting this picture haha. But oh what the heck. ^ ^
