DIY Utility Rope Necklace
A couple summers ago, we stocked up on brass washers to make friendship necklaces. A year later, hex nuts became short in supply thanks to the hex nut bracelet. Today we’re all about compression sleeves, which are conventionally used in plumbing but also make for the perfect component for these statement necklaces. Striking, colorful, and fun, this tutorial won’t be able to keep you too far away from your local hardware store! You’ll need: Start by cutting the utility rope into 8 32 inch pieces. Keeping the compression sleeves together keep the ropes evenly bound and make sliding them on easier. Decide which sections to wrap and start at the center of the necklace. Continue to wrap the entire section. Allow to dry before trimming any excess cord. When all the sections have been wrapped, trim end ends. Using pliers, attach a larger jump ring to one end and a clasp to the other. And that’s it, your necklace is finished! Make a couple more and layer them on top of each other.
