Brooch Ribbon Necklace

Steps:3
Treat your sisters and girlfriends (and yourself) to jewelry that shimmers with style. Start with a handful of inexpensive costume pieces -- brooches and earrings with openwork designs -- and give them a new-old coppery patina using spray paint. Then link them together and add pretty pink ribbon. No one will guess you didn't break the bank.
Materials
  • Costume brooches (we used 6, about 2 inches wide) or earrings (we used about 5 pairs, 3/4 inch to 1 1/2 inches wide) with openwork designs, from Bijoux Way
  • Wire cutters
  • Sandpaper
  • Clear nail polish (optional)
  • Copper spray paint
  • Paper towels
  • 1/4-inch jump rings
  • Needlenose pliers
  • 1 1/2-inch-wide silk ribbon, cut into two 24-inch lengths
