Fabric Flower and Jeweled Necklace

 My dad stopped by the other day with a whole bin full of gorgeous vintage broaches and earrings.  I had seen these fabric necklaces on pinterest before and I was always very jealous.  I thought I'd take it up a notch and make a similar necklace but add all of these beautiful vintage jewels.  
 To start out, I made my fabric flowers and picked out some coordinating jewels.  I made a white felt backing to glue my flowers onto.  After the flowers were on, I played around with the layout of the jewels.  When I found a good spot for them, I attached them with hot glue.  It turned out just gorgeous and I can't wait to wear it!!

Pearl Nest Necklace

A while ago, I saw a necklace very similar in a magazine that I had received.  But as usual, it was expensive, and I instantly think "I can make that"!  I had some thin silver wire and also had a few small white beads.  I started by putting the white beads though the wire and winding the wire in a circular motion around the beads letting them show in the middle. When I felt it was full enough, I bent a small piece of the wire over another to secure it!  On ebay, I was able to find 100 plain silver chains for only $10.00.  Granted, I will probably never go through 100 chains, but it was a really good deal.  I've also made a lot of these for gifts for all of my new mommy friends!
