DIY: The Easiest Statement Necklace

That's it, it's ready!
I never buy things that I can make on my own, that's the rule. I was walking downtown, and I was looking around, when a wonderful piece (exactly like that) caught my eye. In the window of a central shop, it was dangling, so beautiful and shiny! Price tag: 95E. Ok. Moving on. Thanks for the inspiration, though!

I had 2 bracelets I never wear just because, when put together, they are so loud and they get on my nerves. So, I did both, a gold-brown and a silver-black combination, using double string(that is completely up to you, I preferred it to look fuller). Price tag: 3E for the leather strings, I am so proud of me! ;) Try it, it is easy and it looks so boho-deluxe-unusual-impressive.

Tons of love,
Froso

Love it! I am a fan of making necklaces and bracelets too; I drilled holes in dice and dominoes and threaded string through them!

hahahah i do have a pair of noisy bracelets that everytime I wear them people around think I have cans hanging behind my back -just like "just married" cars, how cute NOT

but the thing is, each weights at least half a pound and i would end up like the hunchback :/

ahahah u are so right, such a fashionable and stylish flag * :)
