DIY Parachute Statement Necklace

We are working to update the look of the blog, so hopefully it will be online soon (aka in a few weeks) AND even more hopefully, you will love it :)
In the mean time, we are "expanding" (hahaha) to facebook! Check it out here , and feel free to like it :)

Its saturday again, and its so nice to get a little breather! I am instructing my bodybalance class later (as always on a saturday) but right now, its all sunshine, baking and relaxing with my sister (wow, lets pretend its the 50's shall we?)!

I have done several statement necklaces tutorials (ex here) but this is quickly turning in to a favorite, just cause you can actually layer it with other necklaces (the more the merrier right?)

DIY Necklace, etsy monogram necklace, J.Crew Blythe Blouse, J.Crew Bracelet, Ring from Japan (from grand paps)


You will need: parachute thread (love this craft supplie, I also used it here) or if you cant find that I am sure shoelace would work just fine, chain, lobster clasp, string, a few beads (I used 5 big facetted round once), 25mm wide clamp rings from the hardware store and thats it! :)

I am using macrame technique for the brown center, (in depth of macrame how too here, more tutorials using macrame hereherehere and here! Wow, as you can see iv been doing this a lot, hahahaha)
