I made this project in less than thirty minutes when I was about to head out for a small birthday dinner a couple weeks ago. I was inspired by the Kate Spade version of the plastic/gemstone necklace, like this one here, yet didn't think it worthy enough of hundreds of dollars (I mean..it is made of plastic). So I whipped up this necklace using a thick plastic bag container I had in my room originally used as packaging for bedsheets I believe. I purchased a (seriously) massive bag of large, colorful gemstones, which is a delight in and of itself, from Blick's in Central Square. I wish I could have used a nicer cord for the neck band, however, I only had this hemp-like thread on hand. You should try using a gold or silver chain, or perhaps a black band to bump up the elegance of it all. Ah well, I just hope you get inspired!

  6. Oh wow, Marjorie, how fun! I love how the clear plastic really lets the gems stand out on your skin. I too have a habit of making something to wear on my way out the door to an event- it's actually how I devised this necklace- https://www.etsy.com/listing/117032943/fabric-bead-necklace-in-plum-jewelry - I needed something to match a particular dress and had about half an hour. Here's to last-minute projects that turn out great!
