Hi lovelies! Here's my latest project...



Watercolor petal necklace, inspired by this designer necklace by Lanvin below. It's $450!


Picture via nordstrom.com


Supplies! Faux white flower, watercolor paints, paintbrush, chain, jump rings and connector gems...


I took apart the petals from the flower; I ended up using 9.


Then I painted them, deeper blues on top with hints of green on the bottom.


Pierced holes in them using the blunt end of a needle.


Added the gems then connected the petals to the chain.


Done! I'm so ready for spring, if you couldn't tell.

yours is nicer, you picked a more expensive looking jewel, i love seeing things people have copied for much less and better, i spend so much time in shops thinking "i could make that myself better" and never get around to it!! :-)
