DIY : the boho statement necklace


Hello hello !

I’m still at my parents, in French Guiana, and I have crazy ideas involving photo shootings in the middle of coconut trees, Lara Croft ruins, or walks with mud until hips (it’s very good for your skin, you just have to be careful not to awake the anacondas). I’m sweet and I will spare you the critical pictures since the go pro was fogy, really, that’s a shame! I’m only posting dreamy pictures :D

Here is a statement necklace realized with chains, thread and red jade beads, bought at Katie’s, rue du Temple in Paris. It has a little Amerindian look, don’t you think? The tutorial is right below :)

Whether you are at the beach or at the office, I wish you a wonderful day!

2- With sewing thread (or cotton thread), tie the two extremities of the chains and tie them going up and down in each link.

3- Attach 12 beads with stems starting in the middle of the necklace and going up on each side.

4- If you want to add a chain with gems like I did, you can fix it on a leather thread crossing two threads between each gem. Then fold and glue the extremities of the leather on a little ring.

5- Attach the leather and gemstones chain on the other chains with a thread and needle.

6- Sew the three chain extremities to a bigger ring. I you wish, you can hide the ring with the thread.

7- Last step : sew two rings, two chains and a clasp, voilà!
