I’m kind of an accessories freak. I hoard them, I make them, I window shop online for them. I mean, accessories are pretty awesome. They can effortlessly transform any outfit.
Lately I find myself drooling over layered necklaces, especially those that have a few different textures. I’m loving pieces that use some combination of beads, chain, ribbon and rhinestones. They’re fun and interesting and add a nice little pop to an otherwise bland look.
Gorgeous, right? And it’s actually really easy to transform pieces that you have into this style.
The simplest way is by tying a piece of ribbon to each end of a necklace and then tying it around your neck with a cute little bow.
You can also attach a chain to one of your old necklaces by hooking the necklace’s clasp to the chain on one end and then opening the ring on the other end of the necklace (you can use needle-nose pliers, but be sure to pull the metal to the sides rather than apart. It’s easier to keep the circle’s shape that way) and attaching to the chain there as well.
Let me know if you give it a try!
