Playing with Beads

A month ago, when my hair was much manageable and nicer, I took these photos but forgot to blog about it. I have this long beaded necklace for like three years now and was quite bored wearing it the same way over and over again, hanging it loose or doubly strung around my neck.


So I decided to wrap it around my hair a la headband style for a change. Then two things happened: 1st, it got too tight I was afraid it would break ( 2 years ago it wasn´t this tight ---> uh-oh, my head´s gotten bigger!?!) and 2nd, some hair strands got stuck around the necklace. I had a hard time detangling it and so I had no choice but to cut some of them. Ouch! But it looks cute in the photo, no?


So much for being innovative. Probably if you have a small head, you could try this because it looks really nice. ;) As for me, I´ll  just leave the beads to where they originally belong, nicely hanging around my neck. ;)

So what are some of the ingenious ways that you´ve done to your accessories so far?
