Style Recipe: Brooch Necklace

I have been obsessing over bib-style necklaces with clustered embellishments for some time now, but couldn't find any cheap ones. Then I came across this tutorial at P.S. - I made this. It is pure genius! The idea is simple: you find some cheap brooches and cluster them on some fabric (sew them in so that they don't weigh the fabric down) et voila! You have a beautiful necklace!

  35. oh wow, this is an incredible tutorial! so simple and easy, I feel so silly for not thinking of it. I have so many random brooches laying around that I can't seem to style well with my outfits. A bib necklace with the brooches sewed on is an incredible idea! thanks for sharing! :)

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment!
I love checking out your blogs as well, so if you leave a comment I will come visit your blog sometime soon :)
However, I firmly believe that you should follow a blog because you feel inspired, not as part of a follow-for-follow deal. I will NEVER respond to "want to follow each other" requests.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
