DIY Gretchen Jones Necklace

A couple of months ago, while visiting New York, we met the lovely Gretchen Jones and were fortunate enough to spend an entire day crafting in her über charming Brooklyn apartment. Not only is she amazingly talented and fascinatingly storied, Gretchen is one of the most humorous and genuine people we’ve gotten to know.

After raiding a local hardware store for supplies and hardware, we spread out over her workspace, and whipped up several pieces of jewelry while sharing anecdotes. One of our favorite pieces was a necklace inspired by the honeycomb Universe necklace from Gretchen’s collection. With some brass rings, neon cording and a clever trick courtesy of Ms. Jones, this bold statement necklace is a cinch to DIY! (PS scroll down for the giveaway details!)

 

You’ll need:

Start by laying out a pattern. Even though we ultimately changed the pattern, it’s a good idea to take a photo for reference. 

Line up two brass rings. Cut a 12 inch piece of cord and connect the two rings by wrapping around them 4-5 times.

Pull tightly and tie into a double knot. Trim the ends.

Now for the crafty trick  – take a lighter and burn the tips of the knot until the nylon starts to melt. Then immediately press the bottom of the lighter against the melted tips onto the backside of the wrapped cord, sealing the knot.

The first section is complete. Align another ring and repeat the process.

Continue to add more rings, wrapping each connecting section . . .

When the pendant of the necklace is finished, cut two 40″ pieces of cord. Fold a piece in half, pull the center loop through top of the upper right ring, fold it over the ring, and pull the rest of the cord through the loop.

Repeat the step on the opposite side.

Your necklace is finished! Feel free to experiment with fewer or different sized rings.
Adjust the necklace to your desired length and tie the cords into a double knot.
And now for the GIVEAWAY details: thanks to Gretchen, we’re giving away a pair of her squash blossom earrings! Simply leave a comment, if you’re on Twitter follow Gretchen_Jones and swoon over her weekly accessory snapshots, and a winner will be selected at random on Friday, January 27th. (Sorry, limited to US & Canada residents only. Winner will be announced and contacted by email. Good luck! xx) *** Contest is now closed. Congratulations to Julia T of Denver, Colorado!!
