Over the past few weeks I’ve been feeling an urge to be crafty – to do things like buy glue guns and puff-paint. So, over the weekend I indulged my inner DIY-er and ventured to Michael’s in search of a project. Inspired by this necklace I ended up with some pretty beads, silver connectors and a lot of neon pink cord…

What I used:
Parachute Cord
Connectors
Beads
Needle and Thread
Crimp Closures
Lobster Claw Clasp
3-in-1 Jewelry Pliers

What I did:
I started by measuring out a length of cord and folding it in half. Then I used the pliers to pinch the 2 sides together with a connecter and attached a bead next to it with some thread. I repeated those steps until I had the all the beads I wanted.
To finish I pinched crimp closures onto the ends of the cord and then attached a lobster claw clasp.

It’s not perfect – but I kind of love it… I also have a lot of left-over parachute cord… which means more projects!!
