i strongly believe in the idea of subconscious creativity. everything around us serves as inspiration, so if we surround ourselves with beautiful and positive energy, that will then translate into how we think and ultimately create. take clothespins for example. we have been using these around the house for quite awhile. it was only a matter of time until my mind was put to work on the creation of something wearable, such as this sass & bide-inspired necklace. so now, not only are these used to clip bags of potato chips and frozen peas, but they can also be translated into the world of fashion.
1. lay your clothespins on newspaper
2. lightly and evenly spray with several coats
3. allow to dry completely
4. make two secured slipknots at each end of the hemp cord
5. place a jump ring and jewel clasp on one end and a receiving jump ring on the other end
6. to wear high as a collar, double up the cord and fasten
7. to wear longer, adjust as a single cord and fasten
8. hook each clothespin onto the hemp cord
9. clothespins are removable, so you can add and subtract to your liking
10. have fun!!

i came across this lovely diy site and just had to rush out and make this fun little necklace! i’m seeing so many do it yourself sites across the blogosphere lately and it’s always fun to try and recreate things with a slightly different spin. the name that i chose to give my necklace channels the cute friendship pins from way back in the day. do any of you remember those? we used to give them to our friends and put them on the shoe strings of our velcro hologram zips! i hope you all like the necklace as much as i do and please do check out ispy-diy and stylecaster for more diy ideas!
