Shourouk Necklace

Shorouk-inspired Necklace

Shorouk is one of my absolute favourite jewellery designers. Fun, beautiful and statement pieces made with Swarovski crystals and unexpected materials such as PVC, bungee cord and neon enameled stones; Shorouk is “playful and contemporary”. Luckily for me, I’ve found a brilliant shop in Sham Shui Po where I can find a plethora of crystals and stones, called Kiwi (219 Yu Chau St), it’s a complete treasure trove and where I found the materials I needed to create pieces inspired by Shorouk’s amazing designs.

This particular necklace is simple yet eye-catching. All you need is a large crystal pendant, neon cord, clasps and jump rings. Personally, I would’ve loved to have had a vintage crystal brooch to use as the pendant but unfortunately didn’t have one myself; this DIY would be perfect for refashioning that brooch that belonged to Gran. The mix of neon cord with classic joaillerie makes this necklace modern, fun and even more eye-catching.

It’s already so bold and ostentatious that I don’t really need much else accessorising when wearing this necklace. Who knew that two simple components could make such a statement piece of jewellery! Simple, easy to make yet incredibly striking, now that’s value for money!

Happy DIYing!
