DIY Ringed Cord Necklace

DIY Ringed Cord Necklace

I really enjoy using cords when it comes to designing jewellery – the interplay between textures and versatility makes it a great material that can be dressed up or down. If you wanted to go bold and bright, you may want to check out the DIY Proenza Schouler inspired necklace, if you wanted something with a bit of edge, you could check out the DIY Zara inspired necklace , if however, you wanted something more minimalist, then today’s DIY might be for you.
