I have had a number of women compliment me on the necklace and tell me they might do something similar. I don't know if anyone ever did make one, but I hope I can inspire someone to make something that has as much meaning to them as this has to me.
I did not make my bracelet, but it is also a very interesting piece. It is made up of old clip earrings. I would not suggest destroying any valuable vintage clip earrings. You may be able to find single earrings at yard sales or flea markets. There is probably a way to use them without taking the clips off, but I haven't figured it out yet.
Here is a tip for apple shaped ladies like me who no longer have a waist. Wearing a belt over a top under a jacket can give the illusion of a waist.

Now that I have shared my DIY accessory, do any of you have a DIY accessory to share with all of us?
