[DIY] Folkloric Braid Necklace…

IMGP1484

 

When it comes to summer jewelry it is – small and boring chains are OUT and bulky and embellished statement necklaces are IN. Every girl should have at least one good statement necklace in her coffer. This folk inspired necklace is super easy to make and it looks super cool. Besides you can give some old grandma beads a second chance to gleam…

You need: crochet thread, old beads in different sizes, needle, chain from hardware store, ribbon
Use a board to create a thicker braid

 

Secure it on one side

 

Cut it on the other side

 

Try to make the braid more oval, so it fits better your neck

 

Fix both ends really good. You can also use some glue

 

Sew the chain on the braid using the same crochet thread

 

And the beads…

 

Sew on the satin ribbons. Do the cross, like I did. It gives it all even more folkloric look…

 

Done. Beuatiful….

  1. It's awesome! I can't wait to try making one, and I bet it's gonna take me much longer to decide which colour to use than actually making one 😀 Thanks for the wonderful tutorial!

  2. I saw this on Tumblr and I have to say, I seriously seriously cannot wait to make it! I'm going to see if I can get the supplies tomorrow at Hobby Lobby. 🙂
