BUY or DIY: Pearl Shoulder Epaulettes or Pearl Body Jewelry.

Top Photos: BUY $250 Pearl Shoulder Epaulettes from the Etsy shop of MyLittleBride and Efrat Davidsohn Jewelry. The epaulettes clip on. Her other much more ornate necklaces, that cover the shoulders, are gorgeous and reminiscent of the Victorian era.

Bottom Photo: DIY by Panda Hall, using brooches to hold the “shoulder necklaces” in place. I rarely look at anything on Panda Hall without researching where the DIY actually came from. I found the original Etsy source for this DIY in the comment section.

Below is one of  Efrat Davidsohn’s beautiful Shoulder Necklaces. It’s $1,300 and you can find it here.

“You know the scene on the engine where I’m supposed to feed the fire, I’m supposed to be a little dumb about it. So somebody said I should get hold of a log with a knothole in it, and throw it away. I did that, but I didn’t think the audience would understand it, and then I saw a very small piece of wood, and I picked it up and threw it in. Buster liked it so right away he built it up; I mean he picked up an even smaller piece, just a splinter really to see if I would be dumb enough to use that, too. And of course I did, and so he jumped on me as if he was going to choke me, but at the last moment he really gave me a little peck on the cheek. I think I got that kiss more for thinking of the gag than for anything else. And none of  this was in written form at all.”
