Quick Craft – Lego Necklace

I previously mentioned that it was recently my bosses birthday and I made her cupcakes... Well I also made her a pretty quick and (I think) cute necklace as a birthday gift. I took a piece of LEGO tree branch and attached LEGO flower pieces to one side and LEGO jewels to the other.

I thought it would be a cool idea to make her something she could wear out of LEGO. IMG_4370 I think it turned out pretty well, I'm very pleased with it. What do you guys think? Is lego jewelry just too weird? Or is it just cute enough to work for a nerd?

Jewelry making…

I love doing pretty much all things crafty, but if there's one area I don't feel like I'm very skilled it's jewelry making. That is, until Pinterest came into my life. I've started trying to use the ideas and pictures of interesting jewelry I've seen on Pinterest to inspire my jewelry making and I think this one turned out pretty cute.

I varied mine a little bit from the original because I didn't add the gold bead inserts between the turquoise pieces. I paired it up with some simple-to-make chain and arrow earrings. Pretty nifty, huh?
