How I Turned a Turquoise Necklace Into Earrings & 2 Bracelets Instead

I had this Turquoise Necklace that just wasn't my style. I decided to make it into earrings and two bracelets instead!

Although it was really pretty, I just didn't know how to style it so it ended up laying in a drawer.

You will need two pairs of plyers for this.

I opened the connectors between each charm using the plyers.

The smaller pieces that were part of the upper part of the necklace, I connected again using one of the clasps.

Then I did the same thing with the larger pieces. This required opening more of the clasps to make sure the pattern was consistent. I also needed an additional clasp so that the bracelets were independent from each other.

Finally, I used the dangly piece to make earrings.

The only additional pieces I used was the earring hooks.

Now this is so much more my style and I feel like I can wear with a casual outfit rather then a fancy event!

I am into the stacked bracelet look so I like adding a few more pieces to these bracelets.

I absolutely LOVE turquois and these new bracelets go perfect with the ring I got myself as a little present :)
