Anthropologie-Inspired Nautical Necklace

a

Here’s another Anthropologie ripoff.  I bought 1-½ yards of this upholstery cord at Discount Fabric for less than 3 dollars, and then followed the instructions in this blog I came across recently.

Though each loop of the “knot” is sewn by hand, it’s actually a very quick project, and the finished necklace garners lots of compliments.  For the “adornments” I used an earring with no match and a couple wire beads that I stretched into semi-circles.

It looks nice with my “symphony” dress, whose perchase I justified by the fact that my girlfriend gave me 2 free tickets to see the SF Symphony perform Bernstein, Stravinsky and Ravel. Thanks Calisa!!  I probably owe you a necklace.
