A super new necklace

Wednesday, 12 September 2012

Today I am sharing a recent necklace I made for a friends birthday (hey Dils!) Not only is she a super reader of my blog but an all round super girl. As soon as I remembered (yes, I need alot of warning when it comes to birthdays) I knew* I was going to make her a big ol' necklace using these perfect berry shade beads in my stash. 

*ok, she asked me after a few of these too.
I love the process of making these necklaces, its hard to capture each step as they just happen (have a look at this post for some details). However, I always start with pulling a mini mood board using the beads, ribbon and chain I plan on using -  this gives me an idea on how the colours all work together.  
I then plait, twist and weave the beads and ribbon until I have the right balance of colour and weight. This necklace I finished off with golden leaves and a ribbon tie, that way it can be worn at different at different lengths. I was really happy with how this necklace turned out, I get a bit attached to each one I make and obviously I now want one for myself...


  1. Very cool DIY! Love the finished necklace! Gotta try it out!


  2. Thank you! I find it very satisfying to watch these take shape. X

  3. Looks really lovely. I sort of want to eat it. Is that wrong?

    1. Not at all, it made me really want to ear some kind of berry when I making it!

  4. ahhh this is great!!

    It is SUCH a gorgeous necklace. I've had loads of comments when wearing it, (several from strangers who appreciate it's loveliness!). It's the perfect statement piece. Thanks again Lotts!
