Memories of France

All this week, I'm creating new necklaces out of my
old necklaces and my inspiration: travel.

Blah: a long necklace that I bought from a
street vendor in New York City.

With a pair of pliers, I can reconfigure it
to create a new look.

Tada!: a pearl necklace that's more streamlined & formal.
It reminds me a lot of Marie Antoinette, of stylish
French women and Chanel:

Chanel Black White Pearl Necklace

When I get tired of the all-pearl look,
I can add other beads to update the
necklace once again.

Have a great day!


  1. Claire - love the pearls w/ the bow - so pretty!

  2. Hello there,
    I love your blog, crafting with old stuffs, and garbage is wonderfully! I hope you enjoy making this blog, and I hope you will go on with this, I'm getting a lot of inspiration trough this blog! So I want to say thank you, before i saw this blog, I didn't know that there is so much you can make with only cardboard or a bottle.
