How is it made?

How are the fun bling necklaces created?

This pile of goodies, found by searching the countryside over for months....a little box filled with treasures, ones that were hand picked and negotiated,

combined with....

bling, my tray full of bling...
from the many trips to lots of Antique shows,
scattered far and wide all over the place...


results in this!

Thought you might like to see how these come together.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone.
Hugs and love,
Riki

How absolutly perfect Miss R!!

What an incredible way of taking a vintage over the top rhinestone necklace and recreating it into a OOAK "collar" or "bib" necklace. Which is all the rage this year!!!! I love it and if you don't mind you have given me a couple of inspirations!!??
