Heeeelllo! Hope you all had happy Easter holidays! Mine were awesome and I think I cannot eat any more chocolate for the next few years (I might change my mind by the end of the week). Before travelling to Germany for the holidays, I went konditorn [German for ‘going out to eat confectionary like old ladies do’] with a friend (modelling the necklace above) and when we went shopping afterwards, she dragged me into an Oliver Bonas store. Man, I wanted to buy everything in there, but luckily I was out of money.
We looked at this Cute Collar Necklace and I mentioned that this could be a cool DIY project. I loved this necklace so much, so I looked it up online and printed it off the same night.Using the printed copy as a template I transferred the shapes (roughly) onto shrink plastic with a pencil (for reference, the picture was printed on A4 paper, the unshrinked plastic is approx. 20cm high).After shrinking the collar pieces are now approx. 11cm. Using pliers I attached the necklace. I joined the collar pieces with a small silver ring.I love this necklace so much, but it was a whole lot of work. Cutting out the collar pieces was the hardest part and my fingers hurt so much, but it was totally worth it (and I saved 34 €).

I was so happy when I pulled it out of the oven. it looked better than I had imagined and the fact that I saved 30 pounds makes it even better! x
