Last week’s blog called on readers to dig through their closets and send photos of ‘statement’ jewelry they put together themselves–using pieces they already own. Here are some of your creations. WOW…That’s about all I can say.
Why go out and buy new when you can take what you’ve got and make it magnificent!
This reader took a silver ornament, tied on a red ribbon, and used it as a pendant. Then layered it with other silver necklaces.
Paired with red and faux fur…superb.
Remember, red doesn’t necessarily have to be Christmas red. Look at this sophisticated burgundy lace topper over a classic black dress.
More ideas sent in by readers:
Layer the long with the short. Beads, chains, tassels, pearls.
And still more ideas…
I dug out my Christmas jewelry and pearls, and here’s what I came up with:
If your pearls don’t seem to have enough bling, simply add a crystal necklace.
Still not convinced you can make your own statement jewelry? Just click here to see this video by Erica Domesek of P.S. I Made This.com.
By taking a strand of faux pearls, a ribbon, and a brooch, you can create your own masterpiece.
The holidays give us a great excuse to dress up…and just have fun!
More reader photos…
Thank you to so many who sent in photos. You will be the SPARKLERS at all your holiday soirees.
What a fun blog! Loved the different looks, and now I must go play & create my own bling.😊
