DIY Anthropologie Inspired Necklace

Anthropologie's Akela Necklace, $38

my knock-off version

This is my first sewing project! It was pretty simple (and fun) to make. I made mine a lot shorter and less ruffly than the anthro version... a toned-down version for the office (ok, so i wear some bright colors in the office, haha)...though I'm debating on adding some more ruffle to it...hmm...

With all my upcoming sewing projects, I'm wondering if maybe I should start an etsy or something, where people can custom order things like this...choose their own color and rufflieness, I suppose. But, I'm not sure if anyone would buy anything like this...or how much I should even charge. Maybe I should just subject my family and friends to more homemade birthday / christmas presents? I'm going to do some more research and think it over!


  1. That necklace is so cute!! I love the bright colors.

  2. thanks!! I'm working on making my second one--the first one is always sort of an experiment =)

  3. love the necklaces renee! And thanks for stopping by my blog! I put you on my roll so I can keep up with yours- hope you're doing well!
