[DIY] Leather statement necklace

Leather statement necklace
[Step by step tutorial]

I really love the golden necklace Siena Miller was wearing at the British Fashion Awards 2013. It looked amazing with the green Burberry maxi dress and the silver platform disco heels. So todays’s DIY inspiration comes directly from the red carpet. To recreate the necklace you will need a piece of golden thick material like leather or faux leather. Because my golden leather wasn’t thick enough I glued it onto thicker leather to make the whole construction heavier. That way the necklace stays better in place. But if your material is heavy enough you can skip the glueing and sewing part.
