This one was a bit of a cheat since the inspiration has been sitting on my hard drive for years. I went to a party where a friend of mine was wearing a necklace made out of strips of jersey woven with beads and I loved it so much I made her turn around while I snapped pictures of it from every side. And then I stuck the photos in my inspiration folder and left them alone for ages. So even though this whole exercise was to force me to experiment, I couldn’t resist sneaking in one project I’ve been wanting for the finished product.
Loop this string into a circle like you’re putting away an extension cord, making the loop as big as you want the necklace to be. Wrap the ends around the loop a few times to hold it together, then tie the ends together in a knot.
My friend’s necklace that inspired this had chunky beads strung throughout the necklace, but I wanted to try for more of a rocker vibe than the earth goddess vibe she had going on, so I pulled out a string of rhinestones and used Fabri-Tac to glue them on.
