In the whole world of statement necklaces, I am completely in love with the beautiful pieces of Deloris Petunia. She makes one off, bespoke jewellery and her necklaces are a innovative blend of colour and craftsmanship and are sure to be the standout pieces in any jewellery box. Her Paris necklace in pink ombre is by far my favourite piece. So with this in mind, I decided to upcycle an old necklace of mine. I bought it in for £4 in Dalston and it definitely has potential to be a wow piece. All you need is an array of nail polish in any colour and maybe a bit of glitter (everyone needs a bit of glitter in their lives).

Apply as much as you want then give it a good shake to remove surplus glitter. Then seal it with a top coat of clear. 1400148843photo (12) 1506302770photo (13) 1715779134photo (14) 1485427026photo (15) 931722319photo (16) 1716321984photo (17) Voila! Not as statementy as Deloris Petunia's amazing creations but definitely an homage. Cut to me wearing this forever.
