Today I'm sharing a necklace I made for my sister-in-law for Christmas... I love it! (So does she by the way) I think I'm gonna have to make one like it for myself. My birthday is Sunday (the big 50!) so I think I deserve it. ;)
I used a vintage rhinestone button as the centerpiece & hung a chandlier prism from it. For the chain, I used vintage rosary beads & a pearl & aurora borealis strand from an old bracelet. The diamond-shaped accent pieces came off a huge, gaudy earring from the 80's!
I loved creating this necklace & had it together in less than 45 minutes (and that's counting the time it took to gather all the materials). I didn't like stringing beads in my first foray into jewelry making but this was just attaching jump rings...even I can do that! LOVE it!
And I LOVE Day 16's box! It's shaped like a house...how creative, huh? It was crafted by the talented Marcia @ Vintage French Hen. Too, too cute!
