Craft this bejeweled mirror with only old jewelry and three other materials

Want to add an element of luxury to a make-up table or dresser? Create a bejeweled mirror that’s both stunning and simple to make. This DIY project only requires four materials, old jewelry being one of them. When finished you’ll agree that upcycling has never been so easy – or looked so glamorous.
This project uses several necklaces with an identical design to create a uniform frame around the mirror. Mixing and matching the old jewelry you already have would give the mirror a more eclectic style. If using an assortment of necklaces, consider prying apart each pendant, then arranging them in a repeating pattern around the frame. No matter what design you decide to go with, the final product will be the focal point of any room.

1. Use needle-nose pliers to remove the chains from old necklaces.
2. Glue the leftover pendants to the rim of the mirror using E6000 glue.
3. If necessary, use the needle-nose pliers to remove individual stones or sections from a necklace until you have a piece that is small enough to complete the jeweled frame.
