DIY Rope Necklace…
I love the unexpected, especially when it comes to pairing two unlikely materials together. I like fabric in places there should not be fabric, and hard materials where they are supposed to be soft.
A while back, I came across a really expensive costume jewelry pendant. It was on clearance, so I purchased it, brought it home and quickly forgot about it. This weekend I was cleaning out my fabric boxes and found a small piece of drapery cord. Oh, I had an idea… necklace… So, I hunted down the pendant and got to work.
With the pendant, cord, embroidery thread and simple jump clasp I could make myself a really cute necklace.
With the embroidery thread, I tightly wrapped the thread around the end of the cord. This secured the pendant to the cord.
I cut the backside of the cord and repeated the same process with the embroidery thread and jump rings. Then, I attached jewelry clasps to both ends of the jump rings. This was a really simple necklace to create. I will absolutely try this again with other ropes, cords and pendants.
So, I might love this necklace and I might be wearing this necklace right now. I might also wear it tomorrow.
