the macgyver of jewelry

i felt like the macgyver of jewelry today. i fixed the necklace that broke yesterday, then had a stroke of brilliance this morning while getting dressed.

i like the bubble necklaces that are in vogue, but obviously i can’t buy one. this morning i decided to try hooking one necklace to another to lengthen it. shazam! my own personal (free!) bubble-like necklace.

    I had a similar Ah-ha moment a few months ago. I have a pearl choker that I really like but I prefer a more standard 18″ necklace. I was considering buying a necklace extender chains until I realized I could just use a bracelet!

      Brilliant! I hadn’t thought about that. I’m absolutely going to do that with mine that are too short. Thanks, Selah!

    love that outfit, but just looking at it makes me warm! I guess I’m a little sensitive to the heat. You crazy. (I say that with love of course)

      Whatever. Rude. Ha :) Love you, friend.

    The bubble necklaces you see everywhere on blogland from jcrew are $150 but on ebay they are like $15-$20….

      Thanks for sharing that tip, Nadia! I am in a buying freeze for 2012, but I’m tucking away that little bit of knowledge until then :) Hope you’re having a great weekend!
