Clay Rose Bib Necklace

Neon Clay Rose Bib Necklace

Imagine my delight when I discovered a sweet little handmade boutique in my small southern Indiana hometown.  The name, Rust and Roses, the style, fantastic!  I quickly tracked down the owner, Mandy, who was busy painting away on another upcycled home decor accessory to add to her charming, modern/vintage inventory. From gorgeous paper crafts to found objects jewelry to chalk paint coffee tables, Mandy has a passion for handmade that combines with an vintage ephemeral taste to create a store I can get behind 100%.

We chatted the afternoon away, and I bought these fun air dry clay roses.  I ended up painting the 2 white ones gray to fit into this neon clay rose bib necklace.

To create the necklace, I glued each rose onto a washer and strung wire and cord through the washers to get the shape.  Then I attached silver chain to the wire on both sides.  Super easy.

You will be hearing more about this little treasure of a shop.  Join me in liking the Rust and Roses FB page and let’s encourage this wonderful handmade (way under-priced in my opinion) boutique.  When Mandy gets her website going, I will be all over it, and passing the love on to my dear readers.
