One of the jewelry styles I've admired from Lisa is the rustic industrial look. You might have remembered me blogging about some of the Laura Lombardi pieces I was drooling over some posts ago (the post has been taken down since I thought it was pointless). Laura makes the most beautiful repurposed jewelry I've ever seen, but unfortunately the price point is completely out of my budget. I've had a hard time trying to find cheaper alternatives because I haven't come across this style of jewelry in a form that fits true to my taste. But I wasn't ready to give up due to money limitations. So, I decided to create my own.
This is one of the necklaces I repurposed. It used to be arrow shaped and have 3 blue stones hanging from it. I basically turned it from a tribal-esque piece to a vintage/rustic/industrial piece. I love it so much and it didn't cost me a fortune!
It's a long chained necklace. I really love the stacked metal look.
Do you remember the time I bought earrings from Talize for only $1 or $2? I bought them because I wanted to make a necklace pendant out of one of them. This piece has a more vintage feel to it.
It's also a long style chain. I bought the chain separately for $3 at another store.
This chain was a part of another layered necklace that I wasn't really feeling. I had the necklace for a few years now but never came around to wearing it. I thought it'd be nice to repurpose the necklace and finally put it to good use! Wrap bracelets are really in right now and I love how well it layers with other pieces.
I always love gunmetal chains too so this was perfect. I prefer to layer this than wearing it alone.
