****Sorry Mr. Binns - DIY****





 As I was simultaneously trying to figure out what I will be wearing out tonight for appetizers and drinks with my boyfriend, listing a few new pieces on Etsy and catching up on all the Blogger/Tumblr/Pinterest posts I came across this simple yet perfect necklace from Tom Binns.  I loved it until I saw the cost $70. Yeah that's pretty nominal in comparison to other pieces we drool over everyday but why pay that when you could DIY it and pay under $5.

USE THESE:
  • pliers
  • long gold chain ( $1 necklace from dollar store - trashed the pendant it came with)
  • large safety pin ($2 at craft store)
DO THIS:
  • Bend safety randomly.  You many need to used two pliers depending on how thick your safety pin is
  • String chain through safety pin
  • Wear out proudly
It doesn't get any simpler than this ladies..
