Anthropologie Inspired: The Collection Necklace

From one pile of broken jewelry . . . 

. . . to one Anthropologie inspired eclectic necklace . . . 

This is so easy to make.  Gather beads and charms in your color choice and attach to lengths of chain using jump rings and head pins.  
Hint:  I used nail polish (again) to paint the blue center "stone".  You can see more nail polish painted jewelry ideas here and here and here.


  1. cute...looks better than anthros

  2. I like the antique brass look much better than the original also. You were lucky to have such a great stash of broken jewelry!

  3. Now that is just brilliant!
    *runs off to raid jewellery stash*
    Have a great week!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous, you have some serious skills in jewelry refashioning, I wouldn't have a clue where to start, or finish or even the middley bit ;)

    I'd love to see you do a 'New Dress a Day' style jewelry refashion where you accept send ins from readers, how cool would that be.

  5. Beautiful.. I love it. Have a great week!
    Blessings, Nici

  6. Gorgeous necklace it's beautiful! And the best part is it's one of a kind.

  7. Amazing~you did a great job!! Hope will will stop by for a visit. I'm running a terrific jewelry giveaway on my blog this week!
    Enjoy the day!

  8. Okay, I'm not going to lie--yours is WAY cuter than the Anthro version. I went into that store for the first time a few weeks ago and could not conceive how a human could spend so. much. money. on something that's really not that impressive for a moderately able refashionista/thrifter. Great job.
