Project of the Month

Posted on Monday, January 26, 2009 in Going Green, Wallet Wise


If you have ever dabbled in jewelry making or reaped the benefits of someone else’s hobby then you can participate in this fun mix and match project. I have gathered up all my outdated necklaces, my chokers, those with tarnished toggles and odd color combinations and ripped them all apart.


After last Friday’s blog I started to recognize some trends for this spring and I laid out some color combinations with the necklaces that were simply collecting dust in my jewelry box.


Color Combinations

Light Green & Pale Pink

Red & Yellow

White & Aqua

Brown, Tan, White

Green, Clear, Gold

Sea Green

Pale Orange


Pink & Aqua

Green Mossy Hues

Purple & Orange

Black & Gold



I can’t wait to complete the combinations & recycle my old necklaces.

Right now many retailers have great jewelry pieces on sale and ones that will look great through the spring and summer. Retailers are stressed about excessive inventory, so pick a weekend in February to visit your outlet malls and shop online TODAY!
