While in LA a few weeks ago, I popped into the Jenni Kayne store (mostly just to ogle these flats) and was excited to see a gorgeous assortment of Lizzie Fortunato’s jewelry. I came across this necklace and just fell in love with it. I loved the combination of box chain, rope, pearls, and metal beads… I knew that I had to at least attempt recreating it on my own. This project is certainly not my easiest one as it will take a bit of time, but if you can follow instructions, I swear… you can do it! The end result is pretty fabulous (if I do say so myself) and all of the materials (listed + linked below) can easily be found online. Just have a little bit of patience and you will reap some pretty fab rewards!
Materials: 16-18 inches black rope // Greek Beads in four colors (I used turquoise, peach, hematite, and gold.) // Pink Pearl Beads // Large Lobster Clasp // 2 Barrel Cord Ends // 4 Hematite Jump Rings // 2 crimper beads // 10 small rose gold plated beads // E6000 Glue // Fabric Glue // Tiger Tail Plastic Coated Wire // 4 Skeins Coral Embroidery Floss // Silver Craft Wire // 5 feet antiqued silver box chain
Voila! Like I said… a bit time-consuming, but sooo worth it.
