While we definitely dig the sassy statement pieces made by New York-based, bauble-designing duo DANNIJO, sometimes our frugal-minded shopping ways keep us from adding the pricey adornments to our jewelry box.
Luckily, we jump at the chance to roll up our sleeves and shape one-of-a-kind creations all on our own. Yes, in case it wasn't entirely obvious before, we are DIY fiends over here. And local blogger, Jennie Lodge of Going West, is giving us the tools and know-how get a little crafty with some of our favorite bauble designs, thanks to her nifty guide to creating a super-simple version of the iconic, $445 DANNIJO Capucine necklace.
It seems all you need is an old rhinestone dazzler (Jennie got hers on Etsy for $15), some neon nail polish (Jennie went with four colors from Claire's)…and, yep, that’s it!
Head over to Going West to get the lowdown on the two-step DIY project and thank this brilliant local lady while you're at it!
