LOFT inspired pearl necklace

If I had to choose one store to go on a shopping spree it would be Ann Taylor Loft. Hands down. I love absolutely everything in this store, except the prices. However, they have an awesome clearance section and run frequent sales on in-season items, making it my very favorite store. 

Last time I was there, I saw a necklace that I just fell in love with! However, it's price tag was not what I hoped it would be, so it was not allowed to come home with me. *sad face* SP said that it was silly to be disappointed when I could easily make something similar. He has so much faith in me and is constantly challenging me to try new things. What a great hubby! (Though just the fact that he puts up with all my crazy crafting is pretty sweet!)

Sadly, I could not find a photo of the necklace I saw, but this one is very similar...

I searched through my stash, found a few items, and here's what I came up with. I like it, but maybe a thicker bow? I was also thinking of braiding the three strands...thoughts?  

Thanks for visiting!
Come again soon! :-)


  1. I like it! I would leave it just like that.
    I love all your pretty pics,and am now a follower

  2. This turned out great! I think I like it better than the Loft one. Bravo!

  3. I like it as is. No braiding is my vote.

  4. Your version looks great! :) My vote {since you asked, ha ha} would be to try a thicker ribbon, but leave the strands unbraided - they really lay nicely the way you have them! Nice job! :) M*

  5. So pretty! I love pearls too, so versatile. I know that a lot of the "fashionistas" say they are old fashioned and "old lady" but I love them. Maybe it's a southern thing? I'm not saying a single strand with a turtleneck is the most fashion forward choice, but peaking through a button down or layered like you've done here...I think it's a smart and feminine accessory choice. Of course, I watch Project Runway every week and hate most of what they send down the runway.

  6. I love yours it looks great! Thanks for linking up to A Crafty Creative Christmas Link up!


I'd love to hear from you!
