Accessories: Putting the Pedal to the Metal!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  What weekend plans do you have? Our main goal is to get my daughter's family out of our house and into their new one.  All renovations are done and all of us are ready to make the move!  It has been difficult the last three months, but we have persevered through.
 A couple of days ago a sweet woman I know told me she really does not wear accessories because she is allergic to all metals.  While I know that must be difficult, it made me think of all the fun accessories which do not include metal.
I love to take small scarfs and make them into bracelets like you see here.  My Diane Von Furstenberg scarf was actually found at a yard sale for fifty cents!  Score!
It seems with plastic, wood, beads, materials, leather, etc.  there are many fun ways to step up a look.  I hope this might get some inspiration going.  Does anyone else have a metal allergy? Any more ideas?

You guys are the best...have a wonderful Saturday!!


  1. Great accessory choices. There are so many nice bracelets and necklaces now made with leather, wood, glass beads, silk, polished stones...with sites like Etsy it seems like the choices are endless. And scarves, bien sur! Glad to hear you're getting your house back to yourselves. There's nothing like a disruption to domestic routines to add stress to one's life.

  2. I must turn my scarf into necklaces. I never know what to do with them.
    Have a fabulous weekend, dear pam.

  3. great ideas - i collect leather jackets to do something with not sure - maybe bags but now wheels are spinning about the bracelets. aweseom

  4. i've been collecting used leather jackets for quite some time thinking i would make bags; but bracelets got my wheels turning. great article and fun!

  5. Great ideas for non-metal accessories, Pam. I have a couple of wooden bangles that I really love.

  6. Scarf around the wrist... what a fabulous idea!!

  7. You never cease to amaze me with your creativity and bargain hunting. You rock!
