Sometimes a girl can look at a piece of jewelry and think to herself, “I can do that myself,” which is exactly why the DIY Gretchen Jones Necklace is so great. It allows women to create a personalized accessory for a fraction of the cost if it had been purchased in store. Unlike store-bought jewelry, it also comes with a sense of pride, since it was made by the wearer’s own two hands.
Made with materials from the local hardware store, the DIY Gretchen Jones Necklace requires nothing more than neon nylon mason cord, brass rings and a little bit of patience. A cinch to make, the brass rings are arranged first in the desired pattern and then looped together with the vibrant cord.
