Out with the old

Many apologies for my lack of posts recently… apparently Wellington (my mothers house) is still in the dark ages when it comes to internet access. But all is fixed and the world can keep spinning!

Like many girls, I was given a charm bracelet when I was younger and over the years it has become increasingly full! Pretty much all my charms have a story, whether it be birthdays, overseas trips, or academic accomplishments! Unfortunately as my bracelet got bigger, it became more uncomfortable to wear – so I stopped wearing it. 

Then my brilliant brain came up with the idea to turn it into a necklace! This way I can wear it wore often, and the charms are much easier to see! Plus it’s something most people don’t have! Bonus.

I don’t really wear short pendants, so I got the bracelet attached to a longer chain so it sits on my chest. Love love love.

Put a string on it

This adorable vintage scissor pendant was sold to me at the Wellington Underground Market – not as a necklace but as a bookmark. What a waste! The scissors were attached to the page marker by some ribbon, and at a mere $3 the decision was obvious. Once I got home I found an old necklace and replaced its pendant with my cute new scissors.
Genius I know…

This has now developed into an obsession to find old chains to put new fun things on. I can’t  seem to find any worth paying for in the shops, and I’m too impatient to by them at wholesale and wait for them to arrive from China. The chain is 33″ in length so it sits perfectly in my center, I might just end up wearing this same chain and alternate pendants – for now.
