Create

Remember the charm I received on my calendar order last week from Silly Boo Dilly?



I made a choker necklace using this charm and a few other pieces found in the bag of goodies purchased at Bernadette Breu's.


I added a piece to the back of the charm so it looks good from both sides. The choker is available for sale in my Etsy shop.

Very attractive. That little 23 charm is very unusual. It could be nice for someone born on the 23rd.

I LOVED these necklaces - and I'm not usually a big jewelry fan.
Seasonal and charming too.
About comments - I had to go into my dashboard and change my settings back to what they always were - even though I had never wanted them to be changed in the first place.
Don't ask......

Now this is completely lovely! I always enjoy seeing you repurpose items and this is no exception. Bravo!

I am a sucker for chokers. I have had a few in my lifetime and they always get ripped or lost. I love this one and the charm brings represents a special type of friend.

Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. The review is one of two that I was asked to submit for this new website, Catch A Vibe, to coincide with the American election. There will be another coming out just before the election and I am working on another one at the moment, a lesser-known book by Toni Morrison, 'The Big Box'.

Greetings from London.

How cool is that?! I'm overdue for some jewelry supplies scavenging-the shiny new stuffs don't have the same charm as the repurposed goodies! Nice work.
