The Tony Awards bring out the theatrics and we’re not only talking about the performances they honor. We’re also talking about the style stars that shone on the red carpet! Although not as over-the-top as the Met Gala or the Grammys, we readied ourselves for some drama, and we weren’t disappointed. Elizabeth Moss bloomed in a gown with cascading flowers.

This week we have a DIY that is the perfect piece to complete your spring and summer wardrobe. Inspired by Marni’s incredible rope necklaces, we decided to put all of our cord to good use! This simpler design features one length of cord at a time, but you can always add additional segments to the necklace. We like wearing a clustered bunch to really make a statement, but you can also rock one at a time. These necklaces are a little bit nautical too, making them perfect for your summer vacation at sea!
6mm Braided Metallic Cord
12mm Imported Chenille Twist
End Caps (small and large)
Chenille Cord Necklace1. Measure your chenille cord around your neck, and cut depending on how long you want your necklace. Cut cord.

3. Place the loop tip into the end cap so it come out on the other side.
4. Add glue and place cord into the end cap. Let dry and repeat on other side.
5. Add a jump ring to each end and a lobster clasp to on end.
