Two strand bright bead necklace

 
Over a year ago, I saw a necklace at Anthropologie that I really wanted to knock off. However, I forgot to save a picture of it and it disappeared from the site. After a long search I finally found a picture of it. 
 
 
 
After more time passing, I finally got around to making my own. I couldn't find as close a match for the beads as I wanted, but used it for inspiration nonetheless.
 
Most of my beads came from Michael's and a few from etsy. The suede cord came from Michaels. Besides the beads and cord, all you need is beading wire, crimp beads, and jump rings.
 
 
This has been a fun necklace to wear this summer.


 
 
Thanks for stopping by.
 
I'll be sharing here:

  5. I like yours better anyway. The Anthro one was too colorless for me. Your colors are much more sophisticated looking. Thanks for sharing it with us :)
