I'm a huge fan of accessories -- fashion or home. They make things feel finished. Whenever I go thrifting I always keep my eye out for simple beaded necklaces that could be turned into something spectacular. The magpie in me also keeps one eye open for sparkly broaches or clip on earrings that could be added to my new necklace creations. Just look at some of the stunners I've pinned for inspiration from Elva Field:
Me likey. I whipped this somewhat similar one up out of some beads and ribbon I had on hand.
I may or may not keep that gold flower on there. It's just a clip-on earring so I can remove it easily for a little bit simpler look. I think it's a vast improvement over the plain old mustard colored beads I started with. Thanks for checking in today! Come back tomorrow for a really cute maxidress you can make in about half an hour.
