DIY: Jewelry

This week’s blog post is a roundup of all the jewelry I’ve DIYed from the past two October Outfits projects.

In full disclosure, I used to make a lot of (and sell a little) jewelry. I still have a ton of supplies, and I hope to incorporate it back into my life sooner rather than later.

Lieutenant Starck from Event Horizon

A person dressed up as Lieutenant Starck from Event Horizon. The emphasis is on the ball chain necklace with vertical rectangular charm meant to look like dog tags.
Added a backward Bee Mine charm to a ball chain necklace to stand in for dog tags.

Jennifer Check from Jennifer’s Body

A person dressed up as Jennifer Check from Jennifer's Body. The emphasis is on the silver chain necklace with silver heart charm.
This necklace I made previously. It used to have my cat Puck’s tag attached to it too.

Allison from Hocus Pocus

A person dressed up as Allison from Hocus Pocus. The emphasis is on the pearl drop earrings and pearl necklace with round silver locket attached.
I added a locket to a pre-existing pearl necklace and altered clip-on pearl earrings to have pierced ear hooks.

Carrie White from Carrie

A flat lay of four items on a blanket. From top left clockwise: large pink flower bracelet, thick pink ribbon curled up into a circle, a pink feather with spotted smaller feather on top combined as part of an earring without the ear hook, and a pearly white flower brooch.
Combined part of a feather earring with a flower brooch to stand in for a corsage pinned to the dress.

Little Rock from Zombieland: Double Tap

Dracula’s Bride from Bram Stoker’s Dracula

A four photo collage. The images from top left clockwise: Multiple strands of pearls attached to each other with a rhinestone flower brooch, and a folded up bit of silver mesh lace. A closeup of the back of the brooch with the two other items nearby. The silver mesh lace connected with bobby pins after being wrapped around a wig. The beehive wig on a mannequin head with the other items spread out on a bedspread.
The headpiece is made from a brooch, pearl necklace strands, and metal mesh lace.

Helen Lyle from Candyman

Karen Smith from Mean Girls

A person dressed up as Karen Smith from Mean Girls. The emphasis is on a pair of long black leather earrings with aqua wire wrapped around them.
The longest earrings I currently own I made from leather scraps and wire.

Gillian Owens from Practical Magic

A closeup of a antiqued bronze chain necklace with a tiger's eye bead as the pendant and a pair of earrings with tiger's eye beads and amber colored beads hanging off the necklace.
Instead of shelling out for a Tiger’s Eye and Quartz necklace, I just made myself an entire necklace + earrings set.

Angela Dodson from Constantine

A person dressed up as Angela Dodson from Constantine. The emphasis is on the silver chain with a small silver coin charm and a silver cross charm added on it.
A little silver coin charm and a silver cross charm put together on a silver chain.

Some of these were created prior to any of my movie character costume ideas. Others were made specifically for the October Outfits. Three-quarters of them are still in my personal collection currently.

The bottom row Left to Right: Ginger Fitzgerald, Angela Dodson, Little Rock, and Jennifer Check. There is a watermark that says @ThriftySubversion in the middle of the collage.

Catch me back here next week for another post.
