Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Styled by Tori Spelling and Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores for a campaign via The Blueprint Social. All opinions are 100% my own.
I have a confession to make. I am a bit obsessed with jewelry and accessories. I have one of those over the door jewelry hanging jewelry organizers with lots of pockets and it’s almost full. Even as I transitioned from business meetings to play dates, my love for earrings and necklaces never faded, though the style may have changed. For the first time, I have made my own jewelry personalized to my style- and several pieces of it Woot!- thanks to a box of mix and match DIY jewelry pieces from the gorgeous new line from Styled by Tori Spelling available at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. I was familiar with Tori’s jewelry and have always admired her sense of style (and yes, the business she has created for herself) and so was excited to get to work with this new line myself!
As much as I love jewelry and love to DIY I have never made my own because honestly I was a little intimidated by all the parts and not knowing what to do. No need to be intimidated as I found out when I opened the huge box from Styled by Tori Spelling and saw the enclosed style guide (a cheat sheet for pairing pieces together to hold the hand of us newbies) and realized how easy it was to create my own earrings, necklace, or choker by simply linking a few pieces together with the NO tools necessary connectors. As I mentioned, the new line has infinite possibilities for mixing and matching the styles within the line which are Boho, Glam, Noir, and Glitz. The style titles are pretty self explanatory and the pieces fit the names. The packages of the pieces are even color coded if you’re feeling overwhelmed as to what to pair with what. For example all the pieces in the Noir style have black labeling on them and so you know you are safe to pair them together. If you’re feeling creative though, the pieces are also so smartly designed you can mix pieces across styles to create a piece that’s uniquely you which is what I did with one of my necklaces.
You can have a peek at the whole box of goodies from Styled By Tori Spelling in my vine video here. I may need a new jewelry organizer for all the pretty creations I will be coming up with using the supplies! I’m so excited to share 2 sets that I am absolutely in love with…and literally took about 10 minutes per set to make! Yes, they are that easy!
To Make These Pieces You Will Need:
Noir Earring Connectors
Boho Tear Drop Pendant
Noir Necklace Bottom
Noir Necklace Connectors
Glam Pink & Gold Flower Earring Bottoms
Glam Earring Connectors
Glam Pink and Gold Pendant
Glam Necklace Bottom
Glam Necklace Connectors
To Make These Pieces Simply:
The pieces were super easy to assemble. As the photo shows, I simply slid the hook of the earring connector through the top loop of the earring bottoms. Done in seconds on those! The earring connectors come in 2 styles to personalize. Because the pink and gold with the flower were already pretty ornate, I opted for the simpler connector. For the necklace, I used 2 connectors to link the chain to the gorgeous pink and gold pendant with the drop tassel. I pinched them closed myself- again no tools necessary! The backs of each of the pieces have easy to understand instructions. Styled By Tori Spelling holds your hand through making each piece!
I used the same steps from the pink and gold pieces to make the black pieces from the Noir and Boho collection shown in the first photo. They have a funkier edge that would be perfect for an evening out! The Noir tear drop earrings shape was mirrored in the little stone insets of the teardrop pendant from the Boho style. This is a great example of how you can mix and match between the styles and tons of beautiful colors to create your own look! I made the pink and gold pieces and wore them the same afternoon on a family outing! I paired the light pieces to contrast with a dark print blouse that also had pinks and golds. I got Princess Sparkles to assist me with the photo shoot.
I am so in love with the pieces I’ve made and can’t wait to make more and as if that’s not enough, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and Styled by Tori Spelling are giving away the awesome opportunity to fly to L.A., stay at a hotel, have dinner and shop and craft with Tori!
