How I Conduct Fashion Surgery

Have you ever received a gift that you rather like, but it some how is not quite right for you?  
What usually happens is the piece of jewelry is either never worn, re-gifted, or thrown out, but wait!
What if I  told you there are easy ways to customize it, and turn it into something you love. 

The following necklace was gifted to me by and there were many things I liked about it. The quality of materials used is on par with such notable brands as "Zara", and the mint green color is something I rather adore. However, some things were just not right for me, and I knew it was time for some fashion surgery. 


All I need are a pair of scissors, ribbon, and pliers. I chose a  "mint green" ribbon for two reasons. Firstly, I love to wear mint green, and secondly, I wanted to magnify the center medallion that shares that same mint green color. 

The whole process is done in 3 easy steps, and takes less than 30 minutes.

1.) I took the mint green  ribbon and threaded it into the chain. I like the look of a little color popping through the chain and it adds a touch of feminity when you tie a sweet bow at the back of the neck. 

2.)The charms are connected by tiny circular rings, and with your pliers it is rather easy to move them around. For my own personal taste, my eye wants to move them closer to the center. 

3.) Although I love myself some pink, for some reason, I don't like it on this necklace. It distracts my eyeballs to go every which way not knowing where to focus. That is why I opted to take them out, but I have saved them to use for another necklace since  they are good quality charms. 

and Voila! 

I wouldn't say that this necklace is better or worse than the original. It is all a matter of personal choice and now it is customized to what I like. Thinking outside of the box, allows you the freedom to change little things you may not like, while still keeping the things you do.
