I'm on fire with DIY's lately! haha not really but this was yet another easy one I wanted to share with you. So here we go!
Collect a lot of old (broken) jewelry/earrings/buttons/studs etc.
Select the fabric you want to use & make an outlining for the size necklace that you want.
And start securing all the jewelry etc you collected. Make sure you secure everything good, you don't want the jewelry to fall off when you're wearing the necklace!
When you've secured all the jewelry, cut out your necklace leaving a bit of fabric on the edges.
Cut out the same size for the back, you don't need to put anything on it, it's just to make the necklace look good from the front and the back ;)
Put the front and the back piece together.
Make straps, make them as long as you need to, otherwise it's hard to wear the necklace hmm.
And secure them to the necklace itself.
Sew the lines of the necklace, make sure you don't put any buttons or jewelry near the side like I did, because it makes it almost impossible to sew the outlining.
Then all you need to do us decide how you want to secure it, I used these things;
Et voilà you have a unique/vintage looking necklace! Good luck!
