Easy Geode Pendant Necklace

When I was younger...think teenage years, I didn't like to "smile with my teeth." For some reason I was scared to give a big smile. It definitely contributed to some of those awkward school dance pictures.

Thankfully I've since learned to appreciate my big smile that shows off all my teeth. A smile after all, is the best accessory, right? I just started trying Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste to make my smile shine even more. Express White is a no hassle way to get whiter teeth in just three days* by simply brushing! 

It contains 2 times more hydrogen peroxide (the professionally recommended whitening ingredient) than Optic White Sparkling Mint toothpasteAt Walmart you can find the 3oz and 4.5 oz sizes with the travel size coming to select stores on March 14th.

To go along with the your most important accessory, I whipped up an easy necklace as well. 

I picked up a single pendant and bail from the craft store. I had an empty necklace chain at home, but you could make or buy one if you don't have one already.

 Simply attach the bail to the back of the pendant with a bit of E6000 and let dry several hours or overnight. Then it's ready to add to your chain and wear. 

Do you make your own accessories often? I'd love to hear about the last thing you made! (Have a blog? Leave a link to your post in the comments!)
