I’ve been thinking about this necklace for a few weeks now, but I’m just getting around to featuring it now.
Ahhh, I know, know…it’s terrible of me isn’t it? And it was just a matter of squeezing the “doing” of it into what have been some really busy days lately.
Of course, I don’t know why I waited so long now because the actual “making” of this took no time at all…I promise! Really, you could buy the materials, make it and wear it all within an hour or so. Now that’s a quick DIY!
And now I feel even more silly I didn’t do it earlier, sheesh!
But best of all…it’s really pretty too!!!
Crocheted Tennis Shoes Sneaker Slippers! Converse inspired! High tops! Will fit US Womens sizes 8-10. Double soles are done in a color called "Black Sparkle". A black yarn with twinkly black metallic threads. Caron Party Yarn. Soft 100% Acrylic yarn. Sides are also doubled in a yarn called "Peacock". A turquoise blue yarn with twinkly silver metallic threads. By I Love This Yarn. Also soft acrylic. Stripes and toes are done in a color called "Black Starlette Sparkle". A beautiful black yarn with twinkly metallic threads in pink, blue, gold and silver. By Mary Maxim Starlette Sparkle yarn. Also soft acrylic. Uppers and tongues are done in "Peacock". 8 eyelets for shoelaces. Finished with beautiful black shoelaces with twinkly multi colored metallic threads. These are really stunning! Open black appliqued stars! I recommend hand washing these slippers. The appliques are attached with a very strong washable fabric glue and will not come off with washing. They will not shrink at all. These are ready to ship and come wrapped in a pretty tissue paper with a tennis shoe sticker. Ready for gift giving! I also include as a free gift a Downy Unstoppable sachet in a cute little mesh bag. If you are sensitive to fragrance leave me a note and I can omit it. I can also make any of my slippers "non-slip"...just leave me a note at check out! I put a lot of love and care into my slippers and hope you will enjoy them for years to come :) I also offer free domestic shipping! Thanks for stopping by, Trudi
10-12 Pre-drilled Turquoise stones of different sizes and shapes
Step 1: Gather your materials and arrange your stones how you want them to appear in line as your necklace.
Step 2: Measure the length of necklace you want. I usually use another necklace I already have as my measure. For this one I used an old pearl necklace. Next, string your bead thread through the last stone on one side. Then pull the string through the end of your small gold chain. Tie a double knot with the bead thread to secure your thread to the chain and triple secure it with a few drops of Hypo Cement on the knot.
Step 5: Tie bead thread to another section of your small gold chain. Add Hypo cement in the same way you did in step 2. Cut chain on both ends to the length of your choice. Add jump rings to both ends and jewelry clasp to one end.
And that’s it…you’re done. Step back and look at what a pretty statement necklace you have.
Now go out and show it off!!!
I love how versatile this necklace is. Here it is with a sweater and jeans looking fresh and fun…
…and here it is with a cute lavender strapless number if you’re looking for a night out.
Both look great, don’t you think?
As always, I’d love to hear your comments.
Thanks for stopping by!
