Hey ladies! I’ve been wanting to showcase my little DIY project again with an official blog post. I made this necklace a few months back to wear to the Motown Musical I saw with friends and family. My inspiration drew from the wonderful creations at Dylanlex.com. If you haven’t heard of them, well now you can join me in drooling over their gorgeous baubles and jewels. You’re welcome. Because I didn’t have the Dylanlex funds I did the next best thing, I made my own. Forever 21 came out with some oxidized necklaces last year that gave me the same vibe. Some of them came in sets so that you could layer them and all were very inexpensive in comparison to the real deal. I found three necklaces that I thought would look well together and stopped by Michael’s for some basic jewelry making supplies. I picked up two mini pliers and some jump rings so that I could connect my necklaces together. It was a tad bit tedious, but not at all difficult to remove the chains with the pliers and use the jump rings to attach the necklaces so that it appeared to be one seamless piece. All in all, the total costs for my supplies and jewelry was about $50. I say that I made out pretty well. I hope to share more DIY projects with you all on the blog and may eventually venture into doing YouTube videos with how-to’s.
