We’ve spent the week in Las Vegas under a very hot summer sun. Most of the time was spent in bathing suits and tank tops – but I did get dressed for one excursion to my favorite store to buy a new set of jewels.
When the sun is blazing not many of us are willing to layer and structure accessories for a party. Who wants to mess with that when its 100 degrees outside? Instead I just throw on the biggest necklace I have. I love how quickly a gorgeous set of jewels instantly changes the look of anything I’m wearing.
I’m sold on the style, and plan to dust of my jewels for daily wearing when I get home. Since I don’t have an unlimited budget – making a few more necklaces will be perfect! While I spend the rest of the weekend sweating and enjoying my new jewels, here are some favorite DIY party necklaces that you could make in an afternoon:
A minimalist necklace made with a plumbing elbow – pipes never looked so pretty:)
A clay beaded necklace in the prettiest summer shades.
Felt gems charms that look amazing large or small.
