DIY: House of Harlow 1960 Necklace

Finally finished my first round of midterms! I really hope I did ok. :/ Anyway, what better way to celebrate then with a new DIY project--House of Harlow 1960 Necklace.
This necklace was inspired by none other than Nicole Richie and Spring line of House of Harlow jewelry. I was already impressed with her first set of pieces, but this second one blew me out of the water. I couldn't get the prints out of my mind. It's very consistent with her design aesthetic, but has a little more spunk to it. Unfortunately, these pieces are out of my price range. So I decided to try making myself something similar. It took a bit of experimenting, but I'm happy with the outcome. It isn't as polished and refined as I would like it to be, but it's ok.

Materials: Duct Tape (any color), earring posts, hot glue gun, acrylic paint

1. Make the form of a diamond with the earring posts.
2. Wrap duct tape around the posts and trim the edges.
3. Take the glue gun and carefully make jagged edges on the duct tape. Then let the glue harden for a few seconds.
4. Paint the zigzag lines any color you want.

Now you have yourself an accessory that adds that cool pop!
