My $150 Necklace for $27

Posted by Brette in Collecting | Crafts | Travel Shopping

I have been coveting this $150 starfish necklace for more than a year. But I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that. We were in Florida recently and spent a day on Sanibel Island, where I did some shopping. Several of the stores were selling these little do it yourself lockets. They came in different shapes. I bought a round one for $18 (including chain – still can’t believe it). In the display, they sell little charms you can put in the locket for $3 each (really!). So I bought the necklace and two charms (starfish and sand dollar). Mr. MarthaAndMe put some sand in it that I collected on the beach. When I got home, I went to Michael’s and bought some crystals for $3. Mr. Martha and Me glued them back to back (they had metal backers and kept flipping over so you saw the back) and we put three in the locket. I love it so much and for about $27 I got the same effect as the $150 one I had been looking at!
