Sewing is my craft of choice, but I’ll pretty much give anything a go if I feel so inspired. I saw this necklace on the Anthropologie website the other day but at almost $400 it is completely out of my price range! I have never made jewelry before but this didn’t seem too complicated or requiring any special tools, so I had a look around Joanns this afternoon and this is what I came up with.
Ok, it’s not quite as lovely as the Anthropologie one, but it cost $6 total and I have enough ribbon and clasps left to make 2 more. I did use ceramic beads like the one from Anthropologie but the choice in Joanns wasn’t extensive. In fact, these orange beads were all they had, but I like them. I like the way they sound when they bump together and I like their weight and feel. I am going to keep my eyes open for some ceramic beads in more pastel colors to make another necklace.
