DIY: D&G Inspired Love Letter Statement Necklace

Who’s ready to head back to school? Thank goodness those years are long behind me. The best thing about going back to school was when my Mom would take me to Palais Royal for back to school shopping. Since I wen to private school and I was forced to rock a uniform, accessories were the only way I could really show my individual style.

I’m a big fan of the D&G Fall 2011 collection. It’s full of bright colors and this fun alphabet print that’s worked thorough out the entire collection. Click here to take a look.  If I was going back to school I’d love to wear a few of these pieces on my first day. As usual, I was inspired by the D&G statement necklace and hit up my local hardware store to purchase some materials to create my own.

Happy Crafting! And good luck with the new school year to all my readers heading back to class.

Materials: Chain, Rhinestones, Metal Hardware Letters

Use the plyers to connect the chain and the rhinestone to create your necklace.

Use large jump rings (you can pick those up at your local bead store) and attach the metal hardware letters to your chain.

Workin’ my necklace on the streets of NYC last month! W-O-R-K…Work!

    • It’s H and M. I bought it a few months ago, but they might still have a few of them. Best thing about this dress is because of the way it’s cut I was able to get it 2 sizes SMALLER! oh yeaaa!
