How to DIY this necklace?
Hi everyone! this is a gorgeous necklace from Accessorize = way too expensive I'm trying to come up with an idea to do it myself, without using kilometers of thread. Any idea? xoxo [URL=http://s1018.photobucket.com/user/Soozielicious/media/collanaaccessorizered.jpg.html][IMG]http://i1018.photobucket.com/albums/af309/Soozielicious/collanaaccessorizered.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
I would get a spool of crochet cotton thread (more bang for your money), cut it into the length you need, and then braid it around a rope or something. Then it would have the thickness you need without having to rely on a ridiculous amount of thread to fill that core area. Best of luck!
Thank you both for your suggestions guys!
Use yarn instead of thread
This is indeed a beautiful necklace and you will find a lot of tips for making such <a href="http://ambersceats.com/product-category/necklaces/">necklaces online</a> that includes simple and easy to perform steps.
Yes to both the t-shirt and crochet idea - you can obviously get the end cones at the craft store, but for the centre beads I would reccomend bangles (the bracelets) or memory wire to be covered with decorative wire or beads to get the same effect.
I would go with a yarn. There are thinner yarns that would replicate this perfectly. Cut three bunches a little longer than the length necklace you want and braid. Get ring packs (charming charlies, jcpenneys, anywhere has these style rings for cheap) in fairly big sizes and slide them over the yarn to the correct placement. Add the clasps from there.
You could buy hardware store rope and then wrap it?
