From Audrey to Punk...

I love it when a DIY project turns out exactly the way you want. Today I punked up my pearl necklace using gold safety pins to look like a Tom Binns statement piece. I got the idea from one of my favorite blogger, HonestlyWTF. It was really easy and fun.

All you need is a pearl necklace and gold safety pins (about 100-125). I used size 7/8 inch. Place a safety pin or two between each pearl. Then go back and connect 4-5 vertical pins with a horizontal one. Now you have a punk pearl necklace. Have a stuffy board meeting you need to attend, no worries just take the pins off and you are back to looking like Audrey.  Below are a few pics of my necklace. Oh, and if you don't want to DIY, you can always shell out a cool $1400 for an original Tom Binns necklace.

The Wren Necklace. Onyx and Pink Agate. I do have matching earrings. An everyday necklace set. Would make a great graduation or Mother's Day gift.

I love this for several reasons! Great layering piece. Add about 2 more long gold chains to complete your look. It's rustic and organic looking. Lastly, the crystal quartz points are beautiful in person. Buy this one for yourself and wear it all summer! 

For Mom. Great for Mother's Day or lovely for a daytime wedding. The lemon jade pops! It's chunky and bold. It's the perfect piece to add a touch of color.

A great graduation or good grades gift. Add this bracelet to your collection and stack them up! I love a junky arm! Summertime is the best time to pile on bracelets. The added bling makes it perfect for daytime or evening.

If you know me, you know I love the boutique Anthropologie. I go there a lot to get inspired for housewares and jewelry. These hoops remind me of something that Anthro would sell. Perfect everyday hoops. Another piece you want to buy for yourself. Wear them to your next pool party. Yes, you still have to look cute at the pool.

Another raw rustic crystal quartz point necklace. I made the pendant and hammered it. I like this with a denim shirt or maxi dress. Hands down my favorite
