I LOVE fashion (I secretly want to be Emily at Some Girls Wander, oh and a lot younger ;) I could spend every day shopping and did before hubby and kids. But I just do not have the bucks to support my addiction. So I have to get creative, reuse, think cheap. My favorite way lately is jewelry.
I bought this chain with the idea I was going to make a necklace. But one day with no time, wanting something, I just grabbed it, wrapped around my neck and added a pin. How easy, how inspiring, how may different necklaces could I make from one chain? Ever changing with my whims. Pretty good for $3.00 bucks.
Now I am obsessed. Have you been to look at Joanne's and Michael's jewelry section. There is so many wonderful pieces of chains, finds, etc. I even got a black Eiffel Tower, that I just added to my collection. (Although one day I may run a length of narrow black ribbon though it and wear it as a necklace) Most pieces are under $5.00 and with a 40% off coupon, yahoo. You can make a cameo choker.
For the necklace at the top (and yes, I love you readers, I actually put a picture on me on my blog. Akk were did all those gray hairs, wrinkles, saggy eyes come from ????) I took a safety pin, attached one end to the chain, ran the chain to the back so you do not see the safety pin.
Took a pin I love (this sweet pin is from Cassi, thank you xoxox) ran it though the other end and attached it, so you had two different chains, at different angles.
A long vintage pendent.
Heck, even a cuff bracelet. Wouldn't pretty pink ribbon woven through the links make a gorgeous belt. Akkkk, I can not stop myself. Girl, you need to go get some chain xoxox
