So I was watching Americas next top model tonight and one of the girls had the most amazing peace sign necklace. Haha needless to say, as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have one! Wink

Seeing as I am a poor student I decided to make one myself.
Enough rambling, On to the pictures!







Haha the middle part is a bit crooked...I just keep telling myself it adds character.

It was made from 3 metal bangles, an old "pearl" necklace, and some metal wire.
Oh and the chain I took from a different necklace.

Comments welcome!

Sweet!

   Its actually really cute, and YES! The crook does indeed add character. It looks pretty cool with the shirt that your wearing too! Very cool!! I have these huge peace sign earrings that I wear all the time but i'm looking to do something different with them to make em stand out a little more.They make me yawn now. Anywhoo, cool idea Smiley

I am a huge fan of peace though not necessarily of the peace symbol.(scarred for life by church) I however I love your necklace. the creative re-use of pieces is awesome!
I was trying to figure out how you made the big ring since I see them for the "tree of life" necklaces and have the worst trouble finding them. But how clever to use bangles! GReat idea and well executed!
