Here's a warm-up project after all that rhinestone inspiration. This multicolored jewel necklace was inspired by one I saw on Shopbop that looked doable. The inspiration was $165. Mine cost way less than $10.
At first I wasn't keen on so many colors in one necklace, but it grew on me. It seems to work with autumn somehow. Also, you don't have to duplicate the original design. Use whatever colors, shapes and sizes of rhinestones you have on hand.
