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!
