The lost earring project

It used to be one of my favorite pair of earrings. On a summer trip and while I was leaving a Greek island called Paros I lost the one of my pair... I kept it in my drawer and one day I decided that I wanted to wear it again! As a necklace of course! I used a lace from an old shirt and some flashy stones...I think with a bit of imagination and refashion mood you can do it too! Give your one earring a chance to "live" again...

I placed the earring on the necklace making a V shape. I used elastic metallic thread to avoid sewing.

With some flashy, old stones my imagination started working.

The scissors helped me cut a piece of elastic, metallic thread to start "sewing" my stones.

I passed the thread through the holes of the stones to secure the stones in the position I wanted. At the back I made a knot using a small plier.

I stitched a satin ribbon to hold the necklace and that's it! I hope you like it...

See you soon,
