This upcycling project from Aubrey of Project Lovegood started with red and blue flashing lights and a friendly warning from a cop: “Ma’am, I just wanted to let you know that your brake light is out.” It was Aubrey’s husband’s idea, after replacing the bulb, that she should turn the old one into a necklace.
Aubrey loved the interesting color of the burnt-out bulb, so she agreed it would make a great piece of jewelry. She used jewelry making wire to wrap around the top of the bulb and create a loop for a chain to pass through. The finished necklace is as pretty as it is unusual. Aubrey launghs, “Now, when I have ‘light bulb moments’ I can do so wearing my light bulb necklace!”
