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.
