Turn your not-often-used jewelry, or those pieces from old boyfriends! into a big statement and wear all at once!
The photo above is my fun with this.
Sometimes we have jewelry that is laced with good memories, but just don’t wear it anymore or enough. I’m not a big jewelry wearer in the first place, so one day I have this great idea — get beads and put these pieces on one necklace and wear them all at once! Ta-dah!
I had a silver saddle ring from my parents when they used to go to Thermopolis, WY to buy cattle, a blue star saphire/silver band ring from my older brother for my high school graduation, a very eclectic crucifix from Mexico when I was 15, two necklace pieces - a blue star saphire with diamonds and a diamond in a circular silver pattern from two past boyfriends and pierced earrings.
NECKLACE BASE: I bought a 4 ft. long strand of beautiful beads while in Sadona, NM, I have another I’ve left as is, just beautiful beads.
SILVER EMBELLISHMENTS: Then, I bought some extra pierced earrings with moons and suns on them to embellish it a bit more. Plus, a few cool silver charms: a cowboy hat and spurs, on the bottom of the short strand is a silver Pueblo story teller
BEADS: In Sedona I also bought clay beads: Coral heart, turquoise fetish bear, buffalo, corn, cups and more.
HOW THEY’RE ALL ATTACHED: I took the necklace apart and restrung it as I wanted so that I could show off all the pretty gems and art. The pierced earrings are great as you can just bend the earring loop around and secure it to itself. The rest of the charms were attached with silver jewelry loops found at most any craft store.
I looped the necklace around and secured it at the top where it rests on the back of my neck, this way keeping the two loops layered the way I want.
It’s been a fun piece to wear to talk about!
