DIY Fashion: Glitter Druzy Necklace

There are a variety designs of gem stones necklace in stores these days. Yes, Boho is Back! One of the eye catching designs this season is the glittering stone effect cabochon- Druzy! It is usually made up of many tiny crystals over top a colorful mineral. I’m in love with the colors that it gives a statement to a dainty layered necklace.

This design is a very minimalist and chic design, giving a statement look to any casual outfits. So, instead of hunting for the real druzy, I decided to make a faux. For Christmas, I use blue, white and silver glitter inspired by the cold frosty winter wonderland. For best result, try experimenting with crushed stones or minerals.
