#1 Pearl Necklace!

Hello everyone, my next update on the Breakfast at Tiffany’s challenge is Holly’s signature necklace! I’ve found lots of replicas online, some better than others. However I thought it would be fun to put my unique spin on it – and make it myself!

It is a simple design out of a long chain of pearls and a brooch.

If you aren’t so keen on making you’re own unique version of the necklace as I said, replicas are available, however both the prices and quality may vary!

The pearl necklace was an amazon buy at £1.69. This 72″ chain allows three wraps around the neck. Obviously the longer the chain the more wraps can be created; four being the ideal number as it resembles the actual necklace.

The brooch was also from amazon, costing £1.40. The selection available are all beautiful, able to embellish almost anything clothes wise, hats or shoes. The brooch can clip onto the pearl wraps, or if this feels insecure it can be glued or fixed by stitching. I can also double as that hair piece to compliment Holly’s stylish beehive hair. Simply thread a double pin or too through the brooch and secure it to the hair. Similarly the hair piece can also a decorative hair slide or small tiara – anything elegant and silver would work to gain the Holly Golightly look!
