Do It Yourself - Proenza Schouler Necklace :-)

check out the following steps on how to re-create your own necklace originally designed by Proenza Schouler for the Resort 2011 collection.

The spot on DIY is made by the two talented ladies behind the popular site Honestly... WTF

 The steps as instructed:

You’ll need 25 inches of bungee cord or climbing rope, a yard of thick twisted cord, some thin rope such as mason line, some twine, a pair of scissors, a lighter and a hot glue gun.

Start by cutting a 10″ and a 15″ piece of bungee (or climbing rope). Burn the ends with a lighter to prevent fraying. Then, wrap the middle sections with either twine or mason line using the friendship knot technique and use the hot glue gun to secure the ends to your bungee cord. 

Lay the center of the twisted cord in between the two pieces of covered bungee, twist twice at the top of the necklace and bring both sides down to create a small loop. You can adjust the necklace to whichever length you prefer. Generously glue each connecting section at the ‘x’ marks seen in the image above.

Wrap each glued section with mason line or twine and trim any excess twisted cord. Continue to wrap more sections with different colors, making it bright and colorful.
