DIY Dannijo Necklace.

Hello everyone!

Hope you are having a great week. New DIY post. Dannijo jewelry line was founded by sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder during peak of recession. The Dannijo jewelry line is a favorite among celebrities, including Beyoncé, Natalie Portman, Blake Lively, and Michelle Trachtenberg, and is carried at style-leading retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, Intermix, Harvey Nichols, and Holt Renfrew.

Affording these beauties is way out of question for me (all the jewelry line start from 800$) but when I found rhinestone color necklace design similar to "Hixson", "Liberty","Hilde" Dannijo necklaces I couldn't pass the opportunity of making my own Dannijo necklace

Inspirations...



Items required.. 1. Rhinestone collar necklace. (cost Rs. 600)
2. Nail paints. Colors depending on the Dannijo necklace you want to DIY.
3. Metallic gold nail paint.
4. Tooth pick/ thin paint brush.

1. I found the rhinestone necklace in gold color so I dint have to spray paint it gold. If you find a silver rhinestone chain, spray paint the chain and leave it for a day for the paint to dry.

2. Paint the rhinestones according to the Dannijo necklace you want to DIY. Ensure you use a thin brush to paint or ensure the amount of the nail paint you use. Variation in quantity of nail paint will help you get the ombre effect in the necklace.

3. After the paint dries, take tooth pick and paint the edges on which rhinestones are held with gold. This gives the chain an authentic look.

Voila you have your vary own Dannijo necklace. I had actually made Liberty chain, which got stolen just an hour before I shot for this blogpost. The chain was stolen from my house front yard on Diwali! It was a horrible experience. Nevertheless, I plan to make Liberty Dannijo necklace once again and will definitely share it with all of you. I found this chain a few days later. I wanted to share with you the idea and I didn't want a bad incident chance my plans.

Hope you liked the DIY. Cost of the project "Rs. 1000 or 20$". I needed to pick up few nail paints. I see the nail paints as an investment. Original Dannijo necklace cost about 700$ to 900$. Savings?? About 680 to 880$ :D... Also the photo is sneak peek of next week's post. I shall wait for all your comments.

Well I finally shot for new post today and I could not wait to share it with all of you. It seems like ages since I shot for a blogpost. I was so excited and it felt so good. I realized how much fun it is to blog for fun plus I couldn't stop jumping around in my Maddens. This Diwali I am excited about new collaboration with Steve Madden India.

It might sound crazy, but I have fallen irrevocably in love with these studded Steve Madden flats. It is extremely comfortable and super chic. Steve Madden India has come up with a unique concept "Red Shoe Soiree (RSS" where you can anonymously make candid confessions with their RSS app. Forget anonymous confession, I am making a public confession. I am a shoe whore! My obsession for stilettos has taken a new level. I almost own "70 PAIRS!!" That's right almost 70 pairs of heels and I still crib I do not have any! First thing I do is shop for heels. Well everyone has their own secrets, this is mine. If you are wondering if I bought them this year? Well no.. I am stilettos collector. I have been collecting them since the age of 18. I have maintained each and every pair until today and refuse to part with any of my babies!

Having said that. Do you have any such candid confessions? Well share with me and the world via Steve Madden RSS App. (Click Here!)

Today's outfit is so me - vivid at its best. I love abstract prints, sequins and studs and I thought why not try combining all into one look. A bit edgy, but I think all the items just beautifully fit into the frame like a jigsaw puzzle. Velvet is one of the most happening trend of this season. I picked this skirt from Rowme.com. I just love Romwe limited edition skirt collection. I paired the shirt with blue velvet skirt. Completed the look with studded heels, spikes and colorful quirky bangles. Most of the time when my outfit is edgy, I usually restrain my make up, but this time I went one step ahead and completed the look with bright orange lipstick. The hottest lip shade this season for me is orange. It just brightens up your face and adds a whole new dimension to your face. I managed to match my lipstick and my ring. Went sober on my nails with pastel nail colors.

Hope you liked this week's styling. Tune in next week for more posts.
