I buy my jewelry at the hardware store

Gone are the days of receiving David Yurman or Mikimoto…1 mortgage and 3 kids says that is NOT in the budget!   That is cool, because I found a new affordable place to buy jewelry.  The hardware store.  I kid you not. 

I recently ran across this awesome tutorial from Mommy Go Round on how to make Celtic Knot Necklace.  I loved it instantly.  Here is my 1st version…


I gifted this to my MIL and my neighbor.  I have seen both of them wear them and they seem to enjoy them  They are different and that is what makes them so cool!

Here is the roping I used.  It was $7.00 for 100’.  I can make a lot of necklaces!!


Then I made some other versions…


This is probably my favorite!


This is a little wild made with washers and clothes line but I like it too!!


Here is the tutorial on how to tie a Celtic knot.  You will need to watch it at least 2 times to make one…or if you are like me 10 times!!  Once you get the hang of it it is pretty simple!!

I have no experience in jewelry making so I am totally swinging it. I figure it it stays together we are good.  I bought some silver wiring and wrapped the ends together and put on a hook and rod at the end. DSC_1714

I am sure that is not the proper technique so if anyone would like to shine some light on the subject I am all ears!!


I love the this look for the summer!!  I hope you enjoyed!!

I am sharing this here…
