I went to FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) in downtown L.A. the other day with my daughter Emma.  I had heard so much about the Scholarship Store. Retail companies donate everything in the store that goes towards student scholarships for the school.   I can’t believe I hadn’t been until now.  They had incredible deals on fabric.  Remnants were $1.00 and all other fabric was $2.00 a yard.  I happened upon this bin of frog closures.  I truly had never seen so many closures in one spot… ever.  I grabbed a bag that I thought was really interesting looking for $2.00



These were just so nice.  I liked the everything about them.  The color, texture, and size were all perfect.  These were not your typical frog closures. They did not have a satiny sheen to them.

So, I was mulling over what I could do with these.  I layed them out and started messing with them.  Then it hit me.  I could make a necklace out of these.  This would be an Anthropologie inspired necklace.

Here’s the initial layout of the necklace.

This necklace was so simple and easy.  This was all I did. After laying the pieces out, I took a needle and thread and sewed the following areas from the back side of the closures.

I made some adjustments as I went.  I wanted the necklace to be a little bit fuller in the front so I added one more frog closure to the bottom row.

To open the necklace just open the frog closure in the back.  There you have a great necklace that is very simple to create yet makes a bold statement.
