    I can’t believe how fantastic you are at this, Grace! I actually saw a similar piece recently that I fell in love with, so I might attempt making it myself instead! Where do you get all your supplies in NYC?

  4. christin says 1.3.13

    there isn’t a chance in hell i’d finish this one. why can’t DIYs DIY themselves?

  5. Wow, Grace! You are SO creative – this necklace almost looks identical to the Lizzie Fortunato… beautiful!

    Happy New Year!

    Seriously, Grace. This is amazing. I love that your DIYs always looks like something you could buy in a store (loving the Etsy shop, by the way). This might have to be my weekend project. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

  24. Beth says 1.5.13

    This is really cool! And so ambitious. I’d be a unsure how to start something with so many layers but you made it look easy! 🙂

  25. mel says 1.5.13

    This necklace is adorable, but the ends look unfinished to me. Is there a way that the ends of each section (rope, braid, chain, beads) could meet up and be covered instead of hanging loose?

    I love this mixed-media collar necklace! I would definitely do this with Swarovski crystals instead of pearls, and with a thick gold chain instead of black rope! I think my plans will equally be beautiful like this (featured)! I learned how to make beautiful jewelry by enrolling in the jewelry making classes by Dragonfly Designs (http://www.jewelrybydfly.com) here in South San Francisco. I’ve always dreamed of becoming an expert jewelry maker and entrepreneur someday. 🙂

  38. Judi says 7.7.13

    To be honest, I like yours more than the original.

  39. Naomi Prinsloo says 10.25.13

    I am a huge fan of multi-layer multimedia accessories! I’m so excited to include this (with a twist) to my collection. I enrolled in Dragonfly Designs (http://www.jewelrybydfly.com) to learn everything fashion crafts and jewelry making. I want to do great things too! And maybe a DIY blog too? Thanks for being an inspiration!

  45. […] Today’s Stripe Talk feature is a little bit of a two for one… we’ve got sisters Lizzie & Kathryn Fortunato (of Lizzie Fortunato… one of my favorite jewelry lines.) Lizzie designs + Kathryn runs sales + operations. I was lucky enough to meet the sisters at their Fall preview a few months back (the new collection looks incredible, by the way!) and was blown away by how warm + down to earth they both were. I’m excited to feature them here today + give you a peek into their world. I’ve been a big fan of their brand for years and years and just adore everything they create. (If you want evidence of that, just take a peek at my attempts to re-create their work with DIY projects here, here, and here!) […]
