I've been drooling over Tom Binns Swarovski crystal neon necklaces for a while now but with a £1, 575 price tag I was slightly put off. A few weeks ago in London I was having a little jaunt around Harvey Nichols when I came across the 'Slap Dash' necklace (top image). I couldn't believe how 'Slap Dash' it actually was! Definitely DIY-able I thought.
If you fancy a little art project then here's what you'll need:
1. Crystal necklaces (Mines are all vintage, bought from vintage parties and car boot sales. I used 3 to bulk it up)
2. Neon Nail Varnish (American Apparel)
3. Small safety pins (I used gold ones for a bit of contrast)
I painted each necklace separately before using safety pins to hold them all together, but you can also use a strong thread or even wire. Slightly more fiddly I imagine. I decided to stick with the one colour, but if you'd like to mix it up a bit then visit the Tom Binns website here for some inspiration!
