DIY: Vintage Pearl Bib Necklace
I still enjoy creating things & getting my hands into DIY projects. I just didn't quite feel like selling lil handmade accessories was all that God had planned out for me. This doesn't mean that I don't absolutely love the process behind making & creating beautiful & productive things. Below is the inspiration picture that my friend sent me & you'll see that what I made is not a replica of the original. But that's why I love DIY's. Because you still have the flexibility & space to add your own personality & touch to it. Whats even better is that its rare, unique, & you'll never find anything else like it!
I honestly purchased everything I needed in between that time, but just never got around to making it. Do you ever feel like you have to constantly get new materials and supplies EVERY time you DIY? For some odd reason, I'm guilty of that. So since 2 years have gone & passed, I figured why not? I may as well play around with it & see what I come out with. If I don't all these supplies will just continue on collecting dust in my craft bin.
Items Used: Assorted Pearl beads, Assorted Vintage buttons, Metal Chain, & Necklace Bib. (Items not included in image: hot glue gun, hot clue sticks, & jewelry pliers.) Everything was purchased from Michael's Craft Store & Joann Fabrics.
I had everything in my craft bins already so I didn't spend anything. It was just a matter of using what I had on hand to create something! I admit, at first I didn't really think it was going to turn out. But I love the end result! Follow my Instagram to see me style it!
