DIY of Tom Binns necklace
Hi! I've never posted anything at TFS before. Be kind?

I made a knockoff of a Tom Binns necklace using thrifted and Wet Seal necklaces. I really like it.


I added some more safety pins to the necklace after taking this photo. Thanks for reading.

and own photo

i definitely have the urge to dip my toes into this arena...

marni, lanvin, and tom binns...
all do great necklaces that make me want to take out the pliers and rip up some silk and get to work...
i keep thinking about it but i haven't found the right 'formula' yet to make it worth the effort...

i also need to figure out what kind of glue to use...
ideally i would solder metal bits together, but we are talking DIY here...
i'm not a factory!

safety pins had not occurred to me at all though...
i like the pins, pearls and rhinestones...

i definitely have a bunch of random costume jewelry that i'd like to repurpose...
