Raiding Mom's Jewelry Box

I was at my parents house for lunch the other day and I had brought down a pair of earrings that I needed a new back for.  Looking for an earring back led to looking through the jewelry box . . . which led to looking through the two drawers full of jewelry for things my mom never wears anymore.  I've got to be honest, I'm a lucky girl because I scored some pretty sweet pieces.  Take a gander:
Stone bracelets and faux pearls I plan to shorten
Tiny heart locket, great for layering, faux opal earrings, Norwegian earrings
Leaf cuff and my great grandmother's turquoise ring
I also scored a chunky costume gold bracelet to use in a little project I stumbled across on Pinterest.  Just braid embroidery floss through the side of a large link bracelet!

And here is my own finished product:

It was SUPER easy and I'm so excited to get to wear all my new and fun baubles.


  1. That's awesome! I love the diy!!

  2. I can't believe you made that bracelet!! It's gorgeous. Oh, I love your new cuff bracelet and ring too! Free shopping is the best kind!

  3. The bracelet was so easy to make, I couldn't believe it either! :) gives a lot of great DIY ideas

  4. I've been looking for fun DIY chunky bracelets - this is perfect! Yours turned out so lovely.

  5. Thanks, Kelly! I thought it was a great idea- and a nice way to update a tragically outdated bracelet :)
