Making Instead of Buying

I saw this necklace a while back on the J.Crew website and loved it
but let's be honest
there's no way I was going to be paying $138.00 for it.
so I decided to make my own.

I had some of this laying around 
and thought to myself...that'll work

So I made the blue and yellow bits
baked them 'till they were done
bought some Swarovski crystals from Michaels to sparkle it up

it's not exactly the same color wise 
and all the shapes aren't exactly the same
but I really like how it came out

and overall I paid about 10 bucks for everything
not too shabby. 
(Maybe I'll post a picture of it on so you can see better...but for now this will have to do) 


  1. Genius!! Their necklaces are crazy expensive. Charming Charlie actually has a lot of good look alikes right now.

    1. Thanks for the tip Courtney!! I remember you telling me about that website a long time ago but I had forgotten what it was called :) I'm excited to go check it out again.
