Today’s outfit is a mix of repeats. I’ve worn this abstract floral print skirt from Speigel several times. The top from New York and Co. has only been on my blog once before, more than a year ago. This time, I paired it with faux pearl earrings and bracelets because I knew they would be the perfect complements to my treasured locket.
I’ve shown you this delicate mother of pearl locket before, but I wasn’t too great at getting clean shots of tiny details at that time, so here is a good close-up. Also, I never showed you what is inside! When Mr. Kitty presented this to me, he placed a picture of each of us in each side, cut from one of our favorite couple photos at that time.
He asked me to make a chain for the locket because it came with a boring silver box chain and he knew I would come up with something to do the pendant justice. I decided on a draped sterling silver chain with mother of pearl beads. I bought all of the supplies from Fire Mountain Gems, my favorite online bead source.
Now, if only I could get the locket to stay facing forwards at all times while being worn… It has a nasty habit of flipping upside down whenever I bend the slightest bit!
Have you ever made modifications to a piece of jewelry to make it more unique and special to you?
