Hi again! While I'm on the subject of recycled denim jewelry (see last week's post with roses made from blue jeans), I thought I'd show you an updated version of a different style of blue jean pendant.
Today's necklace is madly simple to make, hand-painted, and eco-fabulous.
Just paint and then Sharpie on a scrap of denim. Like this...
And you end up with...cuteness!
There's a hidden bail in the back, made of felt. In my original version, I used little metal nailhead studs to connect the pendant to the bail.
A really fun, casual chic look. Here my sweet friend Kim models one so you can see it on.
In this new version, I used the same method as in my denim roses, i.e., a headpin with a flat spacer, like this:
The updated method allows for a fancier, flowery center...
I punched up the look with metallic necklaces, to echo those mixed-metal centers.
Okie dokie! I hope you get inspired to grab your denim scraps and play.
