I recently stumbled upon a darling jewelry creator in both Nylon & Vogue magazines who makes these big, chunky, pearly, cartoony necklaces. I instantly wanted one, however, the thousand dollar price tag scared me off...
these are her works.. http://www.caterinazangrando.com/sito.htm
Once I saw these, they stuck in my mind, I love funky necklaces!
I also love Harry Potter, so I searched all over ebay for figurines but they were all so BIG! Then I found the little lego men.
I bid and bid and finally got a set, after 2 months. Why these are so popular is beyond me.
Regardless! I took apart several old pearl necklaces, bought some cheap sparkly beads from Walmart, some bigger funkier ones from a local bead shop (The Beadman!) and began the necklace of my silly dreams.
I just burned holes with nychrome wire through their little bodies and strung them up!
These are my results!
I have REALLY enjoyed seeing everyones lego works, they are great!
Heres a question...
has anyone made funky necklaces/earrings out of felt? i've searched around the forum but i havent seen anything!
Thanks for looking & thanks for posting such awesome things!
