Well I got around to doing-it-myself
finally this afternoon!
My attempt/interpretation was not so adorable, unfortunately. In fact, it looked a little gaudy to me. I was using a few long strands of costumes pearls and a lonely broach from my jewelry collection just like they pictured, but it just wasn’t working. (No offense to the PS version, I sucked at recreating their cute work!)
As I was pranced around my room wearing it and trying it on with clothes, I really couldn’t see myself wearing it for real. And that was kinda the point. To remake/redesign my pearl strands so I’d actually wear them.
So, I decided to try something different. I modified the design a tish and LOVED the results.
I had noticed the strands kept twisting up as I was working with them. Annoyed before, I had kept trying to untwist them. But (post-DIY-fail) when I was experimenting, I gave in and let them curl into each other. The result was pretty cute! With some tweaking and prodding, I was impressed with what it looked like!
Even more exciting, I ended up with two necklaces! The lengths were uneven so they worked better as two separate pieces! One is a plain pearl curl and the other has my broach as a garnish, is a little more flashy.
(I was focusing on getting good pics of the necklaces with my crappy webcam so I’m making weird faces, don’t judge)
I’m really excited about these new pieces! Can’t wait to find the perfect outfit to debut them with!
What do you think?
