While I'd love to wear my second-hand 9 cent holiday sweater (angora! jingle bells!) to every festive occasion, some situations this season warrant a dress code a little less "Valley Thrift" and more chic. I'd jazz up my basic black dress collection with one of these fun DIY necklaces. They also double as a great gift! Links in photos after the jump.

After last week's post on easy DIY earrings for the holidays, I was inspired to make myself a new pair! In my vintage jewelry collection, I have a single screw-on earring of a cluster of rhinestones. I love the look of clustered crystals, so wanted to make a new pair that had a similar style.
I used rhinestones in settings I found at a bead store in Manhattan, and shared links below for ideas to buy online. You can also check out a nearby craft store, and scope out their jewelry making and scrapbooking decals for rhinestones in setting. Also, if you'd rather skip the making altogether (but why would you?!), I love these Kate Spade earrings!
