Necklace Makeover
I ordered some jewelry from Forever 21 awhile ago and bought some things that I thought looked really cute online, but didn’t turn out so cute in person. Since their return policy is final sale on all jewelry I was stuck with a necklace that I wasn’t very excited about. So I decided to add some DIY magic to it and try to make it into something that I would wear, rather than let it take up space and gather dust at the bottom of my drawer.
