+ DIY inspiration: chunky necklaces

I have been in love with the chunky necklace trend, but yet I don’t own any or have even tried to make any. But I have a project brewing  for sometime in the next week. 
Whether its gems, metals, pearls, spikes, flowers, chains, fabric, beads, yarn, or what have you…I think some of these necklaces can be made! And probably some with just glue or a needles and thread. Then all you have to do is pop it under the collar of a nice shirt or you can follow my plan and quickly dress up a sweatshirt or tee shirt and some jeans. How ever you fancy it, these chunky necklaces are a necessity in every one’s jewelry box!
Do you have any tutorials? Share them!


  1. wow. I think I loved chunky necklaces but the ones I have look “skinny” compared to these! Love the look!

  2. Like you said…I also have a project brewing to make a tutorial! Many of them seem simple enough to make yourself. I’ll keep ya posted.

  3. Perfect timing! I’m obsessed with colourful, chunky necklaces at the moment. I think I first got addicted when I had a go at making my own ( inspired by Kate Spade – the queen of statement necklaces).

    I’ll send some pics over to you.
