I always look at All Saints and IKKS necklaces and sigh… I love each and everyone of them but can hardly ever afford a £50 gimmick necklace. I have a robot one from IKKS that I adooooore (he’s called Jean-Robot), I’ll have to show you him one day but he’s missing a leg so I don’t take him out of his box so much these days 🙁
Skull beads seem to be a favorite this season and definitely match the grungy feel of the brands above. I didn’t think braided chains would make it through the Autumn but here I go again using this almost over DIYed technique. I used leather thread this time, to rock up the look, and added in a bead every now and then so that the skulls hang off the necklace. I love the result and know I’ll be wearing this often – a gothico-cute look perfect for Halloween or even all Winter through !
You will need the following supplies as well as a clasp and a couple of jump rings to attach it to the chain :
Here’s a quick look at how I braided the chain and added in the beads but for a more detailed tutorial on braiding chain click here.
