Inspiration Friday

Happy Friday all!

A recent question posed on our facebook page (thanks Elly!) about how to find the beads necessary to make a necklace inspired by one worn by Ponyo's mother Granmamere in the movie Ponyo. I think there are a number of ways to remake this necklace:


Personally, I'm thinking pale goldish tone crystals with deep siam drops. I'm curious how others would remake this.  Or changing it a bit - multiple tiny strands of gold chain with the same deep red drops.

Have you ever wanted to make jewelery inspired by a piece you saw in a movie - and have you attempted it? 

How about Neytiri's feather and bead encrusted pieces?


And of course - how can we forget the fabulous jewels of Audrey Hepburn:

I'd love to hear your thoughts - are you inspired by jewelry seen in movies? Or on celebrities?
