ReFashion: Bracelet to Necklace & Tasseled Shoes

Sometimes life throws you some curve balls and you have to be creative.  These two ReFashions came from disappointing situations, and I turned them around into something fantastic.  The first project is a jewelry redo and the second is a shoe bedazzling as my hubby would say.

Several months ago I purchased this set of Anthropologie colorful horn bangles off of Poshmark.  Although the seller listed the diameter, I failed to think about getting them over my large hands to even get to my wrist.  Ugh!  At first I had my husband cut one of the bracelets on one side so I could open it up a bit to allow me to get it on.  It worked, but the color chipped and the cut portion kept catching on things.  After having them in my drawer for a while, I thought of an idea of using the remaining two as pendants on a necklace.  I had two different types of chain in the same antique bronze finish left over from two other projects, so I gathered my supplies and tools to go to work.

With a few of the larger links, I connected the two bracelets together and then to the necklace portion of the chain.  Now I can finally wear these bracelets!

To showcase the necklace for the first time, I wore it with a printed skirt that has similar colors.  I love this happy look and I am beyond pleased with how this project turned out.

My next story goes like this: I have a gift card for Anthropologie and after browsing online in their sale section, I see a pair of snake print flats with red tassels that are actually the exact amount I have on my card.  I was instantly smitten with them.  I scroll down to order them only to find they are out of stock in my size.

I found these nice snake print textured pointy toe flats at Payless Shoe Source and mini red tassels on Amazon and recreated the look.  I had some left over leather cording from a previous project so I strung five tassels on a short length and tied knots on both ends.  Next I hot glued the knots down to temporarily see how I liked the look.  I will be using a stronger glue now that I have worn them and love them.

For their first wear as tasseled shoes, I paired them with my olive cargo joggers, striped tee, and denim jacket.  My feet danced along all day as the tassels moved around.

Do you have any ReFashion or DIY fashion projects you have worked lately?  What do you usually do when you get something that does not quite fit?  Have you ever recreated a piece you have seen in a store?

  1. Girl!! You are brilliant!!
    But I’m not telling my mother about the bracelet one—(her arthritis makes her hands not fit through many of her older bracelets like the ones above)—and thus I “inherit” them!
    Well, maybe I’ll tell her after she gives me the rest that don’t fit her—ha ha!!

    1. Oh, thank you so much Jodie! Haha, my MIL is the same way, she needs really tiny bracelets to make them stay on her wrist. I would love to see her version of this if she does get to snag one or two away from you. Hehe!
