DIY: Proenza-Necklace


Need more neon for spring or summer??? Want a great new necklace? I did, and here you go!


What you'll need: Bungie cords/cording, random assortment of embroidery thread, hot glue gun, clasp and some time! It is super easy and so fun when complete!

Clip cords into desired lengths. 
Select one of the cords, find center and then calculate how much cording you will want per layer (see photo above for reference). And then using the friendship bracelet knot (Yes just like in elementary school!) cover the desired areas. 

Once complete, lay out where you are going to secure them with glue, creating layers. And then secure with hot glue.

Wrap various color of thread to cover the glue. Also add random 'friendship knots' of colors around the length of the necklace.


VOLIA!!!!!!

  8. It's amazing! You are so talented, Taylor. You should open an etsy shop with these. I love all the colors you chose. About your comment, we might be moving, depending on where my husband gets a job. He's finishing his fellowship in June and looking for jobs all over. There's actually a job in Chicago that he's looking at too. We were out there in December checking it out and loved the city. :)
