Jewelry Innovations

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts. School is back again and I can probably only manage to update on the weekends now. But anyways, I ordered some jewelry online during the after Christmas sales and it finally came! Unfortunately most of it was completely different from how I pictured it and I was really disappointed. I was going to return most items at first but after a while I decided I could make it work. A few ideas are show below.


The main issue was that the necklaces were a lot longer than I thought they would be. At first I was thinking of cutting off a chunk of the chain to make it shorter, but I later realized that you could simply wrap it around twice and then clasp into place to make it shorter as seen in the first picture. You can also tie a knot in the back to adjust the length to your liking although not all necklaces may be able to do this depending on the type of chain. 


As I mentioned a few posts back, I'm really loving anklets. And flexible necklaces or bracelets or ones which you can clasp and unclasp are really great for this.


You can also wrap necklaces around your hand to make bracelets.


Nothing interesting here, just some other things I got. I wanted to try getting the rings in my hair and using them as a hair tie, but they were just too small. But I've seen it done with napkin holders and it looks really cool.


I've been wanting to try the necklace belt for forever now but none of my necklaces were long enough. So if you have a long necklace, try making it into a belt!

That's all I've taken pictures of but the possibilities are endless! Just go and experiment and you can make a ton of interesting combinations!

P.S. My new shoes finally came! I bought them for more formal events but there's no doubt I'm going to be wearing them casually too. The only thing I'm disappointed about is that they're velvet so they might be too hot to wear in summer. But I have another pair of shoes coming soon so I can't wait! :)

  18. I love how you wore your necklace as a belt! So fun! I'm not one for jewelery much (I'm allergic to most silvers), but wearing jewelry in an alternative way looks fun!

  33. LOVE the alternate uses of the jewelry! Sad you were disappointed (that's the downside of buying online), but looks like you found some nifty solutions. I like the pieces to begin with anyway!

    Well now that you're back to school, best of luck. I remember the bustle (I graduated a year ago) and I miss the bustle so enjoy it!

    Thanks for stopping by, I'm following you now and would be thrilled if you followed back!
