Easy DIY Necklace

12 Apr

As you can see I’ve been changing the layout a bit recently. Bear with me as I make Joodles Doodles look presentable. Let me know what you think! I love the idea of a clean white layout with just a few touches of natural colors here and there. I’d love feedback on my layout, appearance or content, either comment on this post or email me, joodlesdoodles@gmail.com!

I’ve been wanting to put this necklace together since Christmas and yesterday I finally found these tiny pewter beads that I’ve been looking for. I was inspired by A Beautiful Mess’s necklace DIY here and A Daily Something’s DIY here. So you could say it’s a mix of these two projects.

All you need is leather cord, wooden beads and pewter beads (found at Michael’s). And of course you can customize all this to your tastes. I’ll show you variations of this base model another day.

I love how this looked and I’m sure you’ll see it in an outfit soon! What do you think? I love how natural it turned out with the unpainted beads and leather cord.


Workwear: Coral Necklace and Black Blazer

27 Mar

This coral necklace is usually long as seen here. But this time I folded it in half, twisted it, and used leather cord to tied it up. This is the same technique I used to wear my favorite pearl necklace. It’s a great trick to learn for any necklace so you can use it for any neckline.
