A while ago, I shared some beautiful jewelry I received to review- Styled by Tori Spelling. I was given both the boho and noir lines to review.
I LOVED everything that came- and I have been having so much fun playing around with it!
I recently grabbed some black leather flats at Old Navy for $4 in the clearance bin. ($4 for shoes? LOVE! I actually grabbed two pairs so I can make two different creations.) They were really cute, but just plain. I wanted something fun to dress them up, and raided my stash to find a jewelry piece I loved to dress them up!
I settled on a native American inspired turquoise bib necklace. The bib necklace is a little bigger than necklaces I usually wear- but positively gorgeous! I really love the medallions on this necklace and plan to make a bunch of things with them.
The necklace is sturdy, but was also easy to separate with some needle nose pliers. I just opened the jump rings in between each medallion to separate them.
Each medallion has two small rings on each side, which I used to attach them in other projects- but for decorating shoes, they had to go. I bent them forwards and backwards with my pliers until they broke off, which only took a few seconds.
I then took the individual medallions and glued them onto a pair of super discounted black flats I found in the Old Navy clearance bin. These bad boys were only $4. Can you believe that? I got two pairs so I can dress up the other one with something else!
I used e6000, which permanently bonds metal, leather, and lots of other materials. If you want a glue that you can later remove, you could use hot glue- just reheat to remove.
How beautifully did these turn out? I just glued the tops of the medallions down, so the little beads would still dangle and move as I walked.
What are YOUR favorite ways to quickly refashion shoes and other accessories?
I was provided with the entire boho and noir lines by Styled by Tori Spelling to use in projects as a part of a promotion with Blueprint Social. All opinions are my own.
