We love versatility and when you’re creative with what you have, you don’t actually need loads! Creating multiple looks based on one item is something we love doing and this is how we help our clients to make the most of their wardrobes. The same can be done with accessories, there is often more than one way to wear most items…
So I thought I would share one of our simple tricks with you which is how to wear a long beaded necklace as a short chunky statement piece. Here is how you do it:
Step 1: Find a long beaded necklace. I did this recently with this pearl style necklace which I’ve had for years! You could also mix up a couple of different styles although it helps if they’re the same length.
Step 2: Double the necklace in half. If it is a very long style you may want to double it again.
Step 3: While holding one end of the necklace, twist the other end so the strands of beads entwine together.
Step 4: Take a piece of ribbon, (satin or grosgrain, whichever colour you like or happen to have) and loop in through both ends and tie in a bow! You can adjust the length to suit your liking.
Note: You may need to do undo the bow in order you put it over your head.
