ID Necklace

I picked up a few inspirations for D-I-Y accessories from
a segment at the TODAY show.

These ideas are too wonderful, I just had to
share them with you.

Let me begin with the inspiration:

The nameplate necklace made popular by Sarah Jessica Parker's character, Carrie Bradshaw, in the show Sex & the City.

blah: an expired credit card

TADA!: A necklace with your name on it!

This was the mastermind of Yuka, a thrifty shopaholic, entrepreneur and blogger. You can find out how to make your own by following these instructions.

Cool right?


  1. Very neat! It's very cool looking too, which I wouldn't think if you just said, "I'm going to make a necklace from a credit card.

  2. Brilliant, right? Thanks Lori! :)

  3. You and your ideas are amazing!
    I love it!
