Pinterest Challenge No. 2

The Pinterest Challenge is back and once again, I’m posting mine a day early. I love these challenges. I actually do try a lot of the stuff I pin on Pinterest but there are so many things to try it’s good to have a challenge to make you go for it! My project was super simple and it amazes me how many easy things there are out there that I’ve pinned and could make in a matter of minutes! Literally, this took just a couple of minutes, not counting shopping time :)

I have been pinning necklaces for a while now. Simple necklaces that I think I might be able to make. Here are my inspirations:

Pinned here. Found here. Great colors! And the mismatched quirkiness of it is wonderful!

Pinned here. Found here. Oh Anthro, why do you tempt me so?

Pinned here. Found here. I love the chunkiness of it and the colors. The ribbon is to die for as well.

Pinned here. Found here. So simple and probably one of the only ones where the beads would be easy to find.

Pinned here. Found here. I love these handmade beads. I think these could be made with some polymer clay. Be sure to check out the rest of the shop, there are so many great color combos!

Aren’t they all fun?! I wouldn’t mind if I had every single one of these in my stash.

So, we all know what the hard part is, right? Finding the gorgeous beads that were used. That is what makes the necklace. The great beads and fantastic colors. I set off to find some beads in good colors and I did find some that I like. They aren’t as large as I hoped but otherwise I really like them so I worked at stringing them together. I kept it really simple (much like the last inspiration photo) and this is what I got:

I didn’t even take the time to attach a clasp. I simply tied the hemp string to itself. That way it also makes it adjustable in length. I have a few other necklaces that I think this will be really cute to layer it with. Here it is when it’s shorter:

There isn’t any project much simpler than stringing 5 beads together and tying a knot! I even have some beads left over so I can make a bracelet if I want :)

Be sure to check out all of the other projects tomorrow! I know I am looking forward to seeing what people come up with :)
