String of pearls

After some inactivity in this category... once again I bring you another one of my favourite things...

Here is my very versatile and pretty string of pearls.



I bought them at a little corner shop for around $25. A relatively good set of pearl beads. Yes these are just beads, not real pearls... maybe in a few years lar, k?

Anyway, you might notice that these string of pearls are an extra long version. About a metre long actually. So what can one do with such a long string of pearls? Quite a bit. Let me show some of my favourite ways to wear it.

I tie a simple knot and let it hang down in the front... looks quite trendy yet elegant, hey?



Here's something that looks a little more classic...



And I let it hang down my back for an unexpected twist!



These are just a couple of examples. I've also looped it several times around my neck to make a sort of choker. Also, around my waist like a chain belt. Another suggested way which I've yet to try is to string them up in my hair.

I have lots of fun thinking up different ideas on how to wear them, and I think the extra length is best feature of this necklace.

Let me know if you think of any other ideas!
