Chunky Pearl Necklace

Want to dress up costume jewelry to make it look like it cost a fortune?  Try Erica’s Pearl Necklace makeover…

To create a chunky pearl statement necklace reach for 3 strands of long pearl or beaded necklaces (experiment with different colored options), wide ribbon, and a decorative brooch.  Hit up dollar stores or flea markets for faux pearls that won’t break the bank. Lay on a flat surface, fold in half to double the strands.  Slip the ribbon through the both sides of doubled pears and double knot to secure.

P.S.- clip on a brooch for an extra fancy detail.
