For my birthday, I received this fun, Christmas-themed Palm Beach Jewelry necklace, which I wore on Christmas Day. However, I don't want something that I can only wear once a year! So, I decided I would use some of my refashioning magic to make it a piece that is suitable year-round.
First, with pliers, I removed the Christmas bell charms, which give the necklace its holiday-ness.
Then I attached tiny gold clasps to the charms. (This allows me to clip them back on the necklace when appropriate.)
I thought the necklace lacked a little something with the charms gone, so I chose these little glitzy beads to add to it.
(Most craft stores carry these jewelry wire pins.)
I strung the beads onto the wires, and using pliers, I bent and curled the wire to create little charms.
I put the new charms where the former ones were.
Now the necklace can be fab all year-round!
I love the colors of the pearls next to the sparkle of the new charms.
And when the holidays come around, I can just clip the bells back on again.
If you have holiday-themed jewelry that you want to wear more than once, I challenge you to get creative with it!
