Repurposed Inspiration: Dainty Necklace Assemblage

new necklace feature

Mom decided to clean out her jewelry box and I was the lucky recipient of some of her vintage jewelry!  Thanks MOM!  I used three pieces…two necklaces and a really cool vintage Trifari Pansy brooch.  I love making these necklace mixed media pieces…they make unusual one of a kind decor.

This piece was easy to attach the necklace pieces to the canvas.

Step One:  Us thin wire (24 gauge) and thread it into the necklace chain pieces.

Step Two: Twist the wire so the pieces are trapped.

Step Three: poke a small hole in the canvas and use hot glue and a piece of paper to hold the necklace chain in place.

Step Four: Repeat on the other side of the neck.

After the necklace was attached, it was fun to decorate the rest of the piece to give the illusion of a pretty top.
