She's Such a Charmer

This week has been so busy, I can't believe that it is already Thursday! I have been looking for another job. Both my part times aren't enough and no matter how much I like them I need to find something else. I am hoping for something in the mornings, so I can keep the others but we'll see! I haven't posted in a while and I really should get on that. So now for a little fix-it trick!

I love necklaces with small charms. They are just so hard to find and when you do find unique ones they are $1.50 at Forever 21 and only last a few wears. Well my friends, I have found a way to make them last much long! The secret?

Items pictured:
Rush! Clear top Coat (drugstore)
Pliers (craft store)
Small Hoop (craft store)
Old Charm Necklace (Forever 21)
Gold Chain (From Grandma)

It is a clear top coat nail posh!

Coat your charm with 1-2 coats and bam! you are set. 

But why stop there? What I do is find a real gold chain with the length that I like and, from my local craft store, a bag of small hoops. 

Note: try to get hoops that are just slightly bigger then the ends of your new necklace. 

With the pliers you remove the charm from the old chain and hoop and re-hoop it to the new hoop! (Re-hoop, made up words are the best, haha) 

If you do this will all your little charms you have a new necklace in seconds. When you want to wear it you just thread that charm on your gold chain and Voila! You are good to go. 

I like to collect all my charms on a board. It is pretty and at a glance I am able to see which one I'd like to wear! (psst... there is going to be a  D.I.Y. about it soon to follow)

Any plans for this coming weekend? I think I am going to Apple Valley. We'll see. The grandma wants to visit an old friend. Well, I hope all my lovelies are having a wonderful day <3
