Remember the necklace I made inspired by the marjorelle necklace from Anthropologie? I love that necklace and wear it all the time, so I made another version.
Inspiration: Marjorelle Necklace by Anthropologie
What you’ll need:
- Gold twisted cord(I purchased mine at Wal Mart for under $2)
- Stretch cocktail rings/brooches/vintage pins that will go well together(I found mine at Forever 21, here are some beautiful picks here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
- Hook and closure, gold loops, end caps
- Epoxy glue
1. Cut off the ring/pin part of the jewels if necessary.
2. Measure the length of the gold cord and put a tiny strip of clear tape around where you want to cut it. The tape makes sure that it doesn’t fray when you cut it off.
3. Dab a small amount of epoxy glue on the ends of the gold cord. Then squeeze it inside the end caps.
4. Hook on the gold loops, and the hook and closure.
5. Dab a good amount of epoxy glue on the back of the jewels and press onto the middle of the gold cord. The jewels might tilt back or forward so put something below and above the jewels to keep from tilting while it’s drying. Or check every 10 minutes the first half an hour to make sure it’s not tilting and straighten it if necessary.
6. Let it dry 24 hours.
Estimated time: prep time: 20 mins | drying time: 24 hrs.
