Spunky Hugo-Inspired DIY Jewelry Project
Who doesn’t love Hugo in his quest to repair a broken automaton (a mechanical man who is supposed to write with a pen) because it was his father’s last project he worked on before he died? This bold and spunky DIY Steampunk Gears Necklace honors one of our favorite and kid-friendly stories.
A Very Austen-Inspired DIY Jewelry Project
The love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy is one of our favorites. We think all of the Bennet sisters would have worn a necklace like this DIY Resin Cameo Necklace. Or, perhaps Mr. Darcy would have given it as a present to Lizzy.
Gorgeous Gatsby-Inspired DIY Jewelry Project
We may dislike Daisy by the end of the novel, but we cannot say she did not indulge in life, like most of the upper class during the Jazz Age did, with wild parties and costumes. We can see Daisy wearing this Jazz Age Torque Necklace to one of Jay Gatsby’s parties.

For many, they grew up reading the adventures of Harry, Ron, and Hermione at Hogwarts and beyond. We can see Hermione, Ginny, and Luna wearing this Hermione’s Potion Necklaces around their necks.
