DIY: As American As Cherry Pie Statement Necklace

How does the saying go… It’s as American as cherry pie? Or is it apple? Regardless if it’s a pie I’m eating it. Add a little ice cream to it and I’m truly a happy camper! My favorite pie is actually an apple crisp a la mode, but I digress. The name of this blog is Glitter ‘N Glue not Kristen Talks About Pies. Moving on…

With the 4th of July around the corner, Americans are taking this weekend to gather with friends and family and celebrate our country’s birthday! Many will be having  parties full of pool diving, glittery fireworks, loads of food and yes, pies… it’s an American tradition!  Although not an American designer, last year Moschino invited the cherries to their Spring 2010 collection party and incorporated them into fabulous printed dressed and decadent statement jewelry.

The Moschino cherry necklace was the inspiration for this project

Materials: Fake Cherries, Chain, Ribbon, Wire Cutters

I found these fab, faux cherries at a floral supply store in Downtown LA

Slide the stem of the cherry through one of the chain links. Fold the stem over the link and wrap the stem, cutting off any access stem. Repeat this step a trillion times or until you have enough cherries on your necklace

Tie a ribbon to the end of the chain to create a bow as your closure
