Quirky Classic Accessory Remix (Project #1)

I totally forgot I had these pictures... they were taken last Saturday. I had nowhere to go and I was really bored. I suddenly decided to fix the accessory pile I have. A mess is an understatement when describing my accessory storage area :D  Anyway, while fixing the items, I realized that most of the accessories I no longer/rarely use because: (1) it's outdated, (2) it's unflattering, or (3) I just lost interest in them. I decided to give some of them a makeover... so now, whenever I'm bored, I know I have a project to do (and an item to blog about hehe).

So here's project #1 --- a long single strand necklace. This belongs to the #2 and #3 category. It doesn't suit me anymore because it's long enough to stop at my most unflattering body part --- my stomach area. Also, I'm not into the single strand necklaces anymore... to me it's 'the bolder, the better'. I bought the necklace from my former teammate's sister who is also creating accessories (too bad, I forgot the name of her multiply site). I decided to make it a layered, shorter (bib necklace length) one instead.

*** sorry for the low quality pics... lowbat camera ko eh, kaya sa cellphone ko na lang kinuha :D

the before necklace - a long single strand necklace
It took me 1 1/2 hours to change it... I haven't created accessories in over 6 months :( had to get use to it again...

the finished product hehehe
I'm very happy with the result :D My Saturday was very productive indeed!

    1. thanks! I haven't done any accessories in a long time... was just really lucky to have the time I guess :D
