This enamel floral gold tone choker is the perfect Spring staple piece. Inspired by Versace and Dolce & Gabanna’s accessories from their 2019 runway accessory collections. We’ll make a Designer Hack version for way less.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Chain

Clasp

Flower Charms

Jump Rings

Pliers

Start by folding your chain in half, then take out the links in the center using your pliers so that you are left with two pieces of chain.

Next, you’re going to connect the floral charms. But first here’s a tip for working with jump rings. Opening jump rings you always want to open them front to back. Hold each side of the jump ring with your pliers, twist one hand away from yourself and the other towards (opening front to back) this way when you go to close your ring it maintains its shape and strength.

Open your jump rings and link together your floral charms.

Once you’ve created your floral links connect them to both sides of the chain using jump rings.

Finally, all that’s left is adding your lobster clasp using the same jump ring method.

Trill Spill: Entry 5 Frienemy part 1

trillspill.jpg

With her journey into being more transparent and vulnerable, she took a break from podcasting because she didn't want to address hard topics. There is no way to go around talking about certain traumatic events in my life when telling my story. If I leave holes you are not getting the full picture. So forgive me if you don't like the role you played. But this is how I remember shit

Trill Spill: Entry 1 Who is she?

Trill Spill is the audio diary of Trice Clark. In her first entry she takes you on a journey as she pieces together the experiences that have molded her into the woman she is today. With a new sense of awareness Trice finds herself taking a step back and reflecting on every decision she makes. Milestones for a 20 something feel like a never ending checklist of things that have to be accomplished by 30. Take a listen as she takes a load off.

Create + Cultivate Dallas

Create Cultivate was nothing short of amazing. The atmosphere, the decor, the company, and conversation. I’m so inspired! I will never forget the weekend I Shared with over 400 beautiful women looking to take entrepreneurship to the next level. I can't wait to collaborate and build with the connections I have made. Most importantly, I cant wait to to watch the network of women I joined flourish into life long relationships of sisterhood.
