DIY Wooden Necklace for Summer

Photo May 04, 11 01 23 AM

I’ve really been wanting a statement necklace made out of wood for awhile now. However, the few I’ve liked at stores have all been way more than I wanted to spend on a summer necklace. As I’ve done before, I was sure I could make myself what I wanted, if only I could get to the proper store. “Proper store” is my euphamism for “Only in New York”, FYI.

During the same shopping jaunt that brought Kyle and I our inexpensive fur poufs, we stopped next door at Toho Shoji so that I could search for my necklace ingredients. One length of wood and a yard and a half of suede later, I had the makings of my necklace. How to? I threaded the suede through either end of the wood links, then tied a bow. Instant, presto, wooden statement necklace for a grand total of about $26.00. Compare that to the $245 version Kyle found online. And Lani does it again…
