Now let’s dig into the projects. First up, our gold and black layered necklace and bracelet.
Easy to make and oh-so-chic. It matches with virtually everything. We’re loving the layered look lately.
Start by unpacking your new kit and laying out your materials
For the necklace: Cut three lengths of cord 24″, 22″, and 20″. Using flat nose pliers, attach a cord end to one end of each cord. Slip a metal tube onto the other open end, then secure that end with a cord end. Repeat with all 3 strands. Next, use the pliers to open an o-ring and slip all 3 cords onto the ring. Slip on a lobster clasp and then use the pliers to close the o-ring. Repeat with the other side, excluding the lobster clasp.
For the bracelet: Repeat the same process used for creating the necklace, but this time use the cord to measure around your wrist and then cut 5 lengths of cord (usually 6″ to 7″). It’s that easy!
Next up we have our hand-threaded hoop earrings.
Pair these earrings with a bright or neutral clothes for an extra pop of color.
To DIY your threaded earrings, start by unfastening the earring lock. Beginning with the black thread, place a small dab of glue to affix the thread to the earring. Continue wrapping until ready to start with your next color. Affix the end of the black thread with another dab of glue and repeat with alternating thread colors. You can create so many different patterns with these fun threads. Feel free to get creative with it! (And send us pics when you do, please.)
