About a month ago, a photographer-friend, Jenn, sent me a link on facebook and said "I saw this on Martha Stewart and thought of you!" I quickly clicked on the link and fell in love with the bib necklaces Martha was making. Then I got an idea. (Don't you love when that happens?!) I have a large amount of costume jewelry from my Grandma's stash. A LARGE AMOUNT! And have been trying to think of something fun I could make out of her old jewels. A bib necklace sounded perfect, because all the pieces would be unique and it would remind me of her when I wore it! So, I loosely followed the easy Martha tutorial. But added my own spin to make it a little more fun and funky…okay, and a little over-the-top!
Here's what I used to make it:
Necklace Template– I didn't actually use this, but it would have probably made things easier!
Buttons, Stones, Gems, Pins, Beads (Whatever you want.)
Ribbon or chain- I used an old gold necklace
Needle and thread
I just followed the instructions from the tutorial above-there's even a video if you need a little extra help. 🙂
If you make one, let me know. I'd love to see it!
PS-Style School starts this week. How exciting!!!
I hope some of those old necklaces I sent you helped…I just think you are so creative and love to see your creations!!

SUPER LOVE IT !! This is too freakin cute !! Maybe eventually I'll get to try one. But I am no good with a needle and thread. Perhaps we shall see …
Lyndsay, I read your blog a lot but never comment. Yes I'm one of "those" blogreaders! But I have to tell you how much I love that necklace. The idea that it's from your grandma's jewelry just makes it even better! Keep inspiring us…
