See One, Do One: Pinterest Inspired Necklace

When I see pretty stuff, I get inspired.
My hands get the "I can do that" itch.
This is why I am totally into Pinterest.
One place to store pics of all kinds of pretty stuff? I'm in!
Here's a project I tried based on a picture I saw on Pinterest.

I made these necklaces using old sewing machine bobbins.

This is the inspiration photo.
I was in love with this necklace the moment I laid eyes on it.
It was made and sold at this Etsy store.

On mine, each side has two beads, a button, then two more beads.
Then I attached each side to a bobbin and dangled a charm from the bottom of the bobbin.

I got the beads on clearance at Michaels.
I got the bobbins at a thrift store. 
The heart charms came from an estate sale; I stamped the words "Hope" and "Joy" on them.

I did another one in different colors.
This one has snaps above the beads.

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

May He grant you according to your heart's desire,
and fulfill all your purpose.
Psalm 20:4
