How to Make a Bib Necklace from Broken Jewelry

By on Saturday, November 23, 2013 2 Comments

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.
