If you enjoy unexpected accessories, then Kim from Twisted Crafts has a project that may pique your interest.  Her YouTube video tutorial shows step-by-step how to jazz up a toy snake, then attach it to one or more chains.  It’s a great project for reusing costume jewelry bits or broken necklaces that you have laying around.  In the video, she also uses a beaded eyeglasses holder alongside the chains.  Do creepy-crawlies give you the heebie-jeebies?  Look for other toys at the dollar store that you could use instead.  The process has so many possibilities!  [how to make a snake necklace]
