Who Likes Animal Jewelry?

26 Sep

I don’t often wear rings since it’s hard to find something that looks nice and fits.

But I stopped by H&M over the weekend and found a set of animal rings in the Divided section that peaked my interest.

It was difficult to try them on in the store due to the packaging, but it said XS/S in terms of sizing, so I bought them. When I got home, I could only fit into one ring (an owl in Size 5) and the rest slid off my fingers. I tried the rest on my thumbs but it just didn’t look right.

So, I’m giving away the three (out of four) rings individually….for FREE!

DIY Part II: Sweater Clip

25 Sep

Is Glee single-handedly bringing back sweater clips?

It seems so as more episodes of Emma Pillsbury (as played byJayma Mays) display more versions of some lovely vintage sweater clips. At first, I thought she was wearing an interesting brooch/necklace. Then I looked it up and it turns out it’s a 1950’s accessories trend that went out of style as people moved away from the sock hop look.

However, cardigans and these clips are back with a vengeance! No longer are they for adorning your old lady library sweaters, they’re perfect for adding some bling to your neckline a lá collar. So clip this little vintage trinket and you’re ready for sweet surprise.

The perfect accessory that’s like a necklace…only not! Tehee!

I saw this owl sweater guard clip debut on Glee Episode 1, as worn by Emma Pillsbury. (Jayma Mays) It’s no longer available on Etsy and no matter how hard I scoured Ebay, no luck. So, I decided to make my own version.

With cost of all the materials, it was easily less than $20 at Michael’s.

Plus, I got a nearly brand new vest clip for $1.99 from Goodwill.

The pearls were pretty sweet at $5.99 for about 14″.

And of course, who can forget the owl? It’s a swinging owl, so it has some movement, which I kind of like anyways.

I’m making a more modern uptake on the vintage sweater clip by connecting the string of pearls to the vest clip and attaching the owl to the head of the vest clip. It only takes a couple of minutes and some fidgeting, but in the end, it’s worth it!

I forgot to take pictures of it before I moved, so it’s packed away somewhere. But I’ll have it up soon!
