create | a new necklace

All photos by Rebecca Beach for A Daily Something.  

For some inspiration yesterday, I took a trip to Lowes.  I walked up and down the aisles for over an hour.  I’m positive the employees thought I was certified crazy.  It’s amazing how much inspiration you can find in a hardware store if you keep your mind open (and yes, I picked up some neon pink twine, thanks to Angela Hardison over on You Are My Fave).

The supplies to this chunky brass and rope necklace were all purchased at Lowes.  Don’t you love how industrial//nautical//elegant it looks?!  I can’t wait to wear it!  🙂

Have a great Tuesday, friends!!

till tomorrow,

Rebecca

P.S. After reading Monday’s blog post, my friend Russell reminded me that when I started my blog, he suggested I name it “The Daily (or every other, or when inspiration strikes) Something.”  All that to say sorry again for my lack of interestingness yesterday.  You are all so very patient!

    what's funny every time I go into Lowes or Home Depot- I think I am in one of those movies or shoes like the office. 🙂

    I could spend all day in the art or book store.

    Lowe's should totally give you your own space in an aisle to sale these!

    I want to see you wearing it! Mostly because I want to know if it starts itching your neck like crazy. (Okay fine, I go crazy with anything around my neck. Like ever. I was the annoying kid who never wore their nametag) but I want you to tell me that this isn't itchy because it looks so cute!

    Well it looks like I'm off to Lowes this afternoon. I MUST have that pink twine! And the necklace you created is absolutely beautiful. The juxtaposition of the shiny hardware against the rope…love it. Very clever with the closure on the necklace. I am kicking myself and wondering why I never thought of it. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Wishing you sunshine & cheer,

    The hardware store can be so inspiring! Especially when you go with the eye of an artist. I've found lots of good ways to accent my work with wire, wood, all sorts of things. Its very satisfying too, to look past something every day use and find art or style in it 🙂

    Great DIY! The hardware store is great for DIY projects, I have some bolts and things laying around I need to do something with. And yes the employees probably think you're crazy! When they ask if I need help I tell them you don't even want to know what I'm planning!
