DIY Chan Luu Inspired Necklaces

Last month, my  mom and I spent a weekend exploring the city of Savannah, Georgia (post here).  On our last morning we got hot chocolates and took one last, long stroll through the city and browsed through some small shops that we had missed.  In one of the shops, Terra Cotta, practically everything caught my eye.  Among those items was a simple Chan Luu layering Necklace, but after spending the weekend indulging on eating out and other boutique shopping, I couldn't justify the hefty price tag.

A couple of weeks later, I just couldn't get that necklace off my mind.  I decided that because of the simplicity of it, I could probably make it myself.  I picked up some inexpensive materials at Michaels (I spent under $20 to make both necklaces) and voila, so easy.  It made a really nice and relaxing Sunday activity.  I need to remember when I am out there shopping that there are so many things I can make myself.  I love a good project and the creativity, and fulfillment that comes from making something with your own hands.
