The inspiration from this necklace came from when I was taking a weekend sailing course over the Fall. Oh yes, fun fact, I’m a certified ASA Sailor. A part of the training was learning how to tie sailing knots and what struck me was how functional yet beautiful they were. I decided that one day, I would turn it into a DIY project and make something out of one of the knots I learned. I made the necklace with black rope because I didn’t want it to be too literal but if you did, they sell all kinds of color combinations. I wore the necklace out last Saturday and people kept asking me if it was a part of my shirt. I like that it looks a little avante garde and a departure from the necklaces I usually wear. It’s so easy and it only took me 30 minutes to make. If you know basic sewing it’s a breeze.
- 1 yard of nautical rope (I bought mine at West Marine)
