Those who know me, know that I am not much of an accessorizer. I don't wear much jewelry and when I do it's usually only very simple, silver stuff. Well, ever since I've started DIY(ing) that has changed. I can't get enough of big, chunky costume jewelry, especially collar type necklaces. With today's project (inspired by a post on 'honestly wtf') I am adding another awesome piece to my growing collection.
What you need: +/- 2 hours
about 8-10 metres of micro-fibre suede chord.
a packet of washers
*optional- when I made mine I only used 4 metres of chord which was only about
enough to make a bracelet so I lengthened it with a chain.
Step 1: Cut your chord into 4 equally long pieces
Step 2: Knot the four pieces together leaving enough slack to tie necklace behind you neck
Step 4: Start braiding: fold North and South over to the opposite ends making to loops.
*extra tip. when weaving the long chords might get tangled so I suggest you roll them and secure them with some rubber elastics to keep them from knotting. ( do not roll the chord on which you thread the washers)
