A while ago, I saw some necklaces made by sasha + max studio.  They were not terribly complicated, but they used high quality materials – great chirimen cord and handmade pendants – that really complemented each other. I had a Round Rabbit pendant that I had made into a necklace that was more complicated than necessary and didn’t quite work.  I realized I could tone down my design which would make it better.

ImageI finally got some cord from the etsy store Oh So Fabu.  They have great stuff.  Then I ran into my usual problem of not having all the materials like the right size cord ends.  But my goal this year is to get things done.  So I put the materials I did have into a kit together, so I could find them all later and ordered what I needed when I got the chance.  When I ran into a construction snag due to inexperience, I did a little research on Pinterest to see how other people had used this type of cord and came up with an idea that would work for me.
