My husband has two grandmothers who I love like they are my own. My grandparents passed away a long time ago, so I adore having them in my life and love calling them Grandmom and GMom.
Two weeks ago, my husband’s Aunt and Uncle celebrated their 60th birthdays, and we all went to a party in their honor – 4 generations worth of Salvittis! At the party, Grandmom was wearing the prettiest gold necklace, and I told her so.
This is Grandmom and her necklace:
She said she made it!! I was all…what?! and how?!
Grandmom worked as a fashion designer in the 50s before she had kids, so as you can imagine she’s super fashionable. We have hand-me-down dresses she made for her own granddaughters that her now great-granddaughters, like Sophie, still wear. They’re that beautiful and that well made.
So back to the necklace. She told me she attached a bunch of old earrings to a chain, added a little glue, and voila! (OMG)
Obviously I had to make one, so I raided my mom’s jewelry box and found a whole bunch of perfectly huge 80s earrings. These are my pairs:
And my chains:

What do you think? Fun, right? Kind of genius, I say.
Want to make an earring necklace with me?
