Junk jewelry always catches my eye! This fun and funky little necklace is made from a pair of old jeans and lots of found jewelry bits and pieces.
This piece would make a great little gift. You could even make a matching bracelet with a mini heart of the same style. Maybe the tutorial is just in time for some holidays right around the corner? Get out those old jeans and start crafting!
Thakoon’s signature humor and verve bring a little levity to the collection: He arrays pearls on finger-spanning rings and pendants, even—with a few safety-pin-accessorized necklaces—making the prim staple look positively punky. “I wanted to put some youthful spirit into pearls,” he told WWD. The pieces, however, will be at grown-up price points, ranging from about $5,500 to nearly $40,000 when they debut at Tasaki’s Ginza, Tokyo store in April
