DIY statement necklace

DIY Statement Necklace

I did it!
{with a little help from mom. that seems to be a theme lately...]

Remember this beautiful etsy necklace that I refused to pay $100 for?


Here's mine.



Vintage Pearl Collar: $12 on Ebay
Handmade Silk Rose: Free
Gross Grain Ribbon: $0.39

[let me know if you want to make your own, i'll send you some links and info]
i'm wearing mine with skinny jeans, fun flat and a t-shirt.

Wow, this is great! Nice job. I've been eyeing a pearl vintage collar on Etsy for a while... maybe a splurge is in order? :)

Amanda said...

lovely lovely. well done! and i even like the color better than the original...

Yours is cuter anyway.

mandi - don't splurge. you can get vintage beaded collars ALL DAY on ebay for 8-12 dollars.

and don't be afraid to ask the etsy sellers for a discount. i got up to $5 off on some of the ones i ordered.

I had an adventure at Michael's the craft store yesterday to make myself some fascinators for my hair that I also saw on etsy. I was almost as successful as you, but since yours was better than the original, you win. The necklace is so beautiful! I just glanced down the list of blogs linked to Kaeli's and saw yours. I'm so glad!
