DIY: Lucite And Neon Knotted Necklace

Glitter 'N Glue DIY Lucite And Neon Necklace Last weekend I attended the Lucky FABB cocktail party. While I was chatting with a friend a uber fashionable blogger walked by wearing a fab lucite and neon orange tread necklace. Before I had a chance to ask her where it was from or get my camera out to snap a pic, she was gone. In other news, I’d make the worst paparazzi EVER!

I’ve been seeing these type necklaces pop up all over the place lately. While I may not have been able to get any details about her necklace, I just knew I’d have to make one of my very own.

TIP: Lucite beads can be purchased at your local bead store. However, I used the beads from an H&M necklace I’d purchased a few months back. #MakeItWork

    I am loving this idea! I have questions tho’! What kind of thread did you use? Do you have any advice on how to get the knots really close to the bead? That seems to be my problem all the time!

    • The thread I found was more like a cord. They had it at my local fabric store. I was lucky enough to find it so thin that it fit through the hole in my bead. Knotting can be a problem.I just tried to tie the knot a the top of the bead. I used my thump to move it down if I needed to before I made it tight. I can be tricky but you just have to keep at it. Good luck!

    Hey girl Hey!

    Great Diy as usual. This one seems pretty easy. Would embroidery thread work?

    • Heeeeeeey! I think embroidery thread is a great idea!!! I actually found some gold metallic thread I was thinking about using, but opted for the neon instead. Just be sure you use a few pieces of thread so that your necklace is strong enough to support the weight of your beads. Send me a pic after you make it! I want to see!!! xoxo
