Everyone, well at least everyone I know, loves a statement necklace. The problem with most gorgeous, swoon worthy statement necklaces is the inflated price tag that usually accompanies them. I would say I'm willing to pay upwards of $100 for a statement necklace I can't live without, but that's not saying I don't become obsessed with pieces COMPLETELY out of my budget [hello, I'm human]. I've been trying to reproduce necklaces on my own, but I have no talent. What I am talented at is hunting down items that I'd love to buy! So technically, if we're taking my talents into account, the score is Bethany-1 DIY-0.
