When it comes to jazzing up a look, accessories are the necessity; and it never hurts to have some versatile, multi-purpose bling that can add a boost to multiple things in your closet. Clipped, wrapped or draped, a simple chain can convert everything from shorts to skirts to purses…even your wrist, into a classy yet sassy moment. Inspired by these shorts from Moschino Cheap & Chic, make this Pearl Chain Accoutrement your new secret style weapon!
To create: Gather a variety of chains (we used pearl, gold and black), beads,pearls, charms and hex nuts. String an assortment of pearls, hex nuts and gold beads onto headpins. Bend the end and wrap it around with jewelry pliers. Connect the chain and bead components together with jump rings and pliers. Attach charms where desired. At the top corners, connect the parts to a large jump ring and lobster clasp. Wear the finished piece in a variety of ways, whether you clasp it to the belt loops to skirts, pants or shorts, or attach it to your favorite bag, wrap it around your wrist, wear around your neck…the possibilities are endless, so get creative!
