We should really save broken jewelry, odd earrings and unloved jewelry to reuse them for a fabulous bib statement necklace. Stacie over on the Stars for Streetlights blog shared a sparkly statement necklace idea. Her pale color palette certainly added elegance to her final design.
She began with a collar base she bought from a trimmings store. Other alternatives include lace segments from fabric or perhaps a leather cutout. You could also crochet a bib base if you are able to.
She then carefully stitched the deconstructed jewelry pieces together. I agree with Stacie, rhinestone trim along the edges was an inspired idea for the edges.
