Make a Colorful Statement Necklace


I’m so glad statement necklaces are still around. I really love how easy they can be to wear, they can dress up a basic t-shirt and jeans or add more sophistication to a dress. This is a super easy project to make and inexpensive. I found my brightly colored cord at the hardware store, the necklace was on the sale racks and the nail polish I already had! I think all the materials cost less than $10, but the results look way more expensive. Let’s get started!

This is a great necklace to wear for the holidays! With color and sparkle it’s perfect for your next get together with friends. I love how easily nail polish can transform clear stones into colorful pops of color. There are so many ways to make a necklace like this, you can easily stack more necklaces together or add some chains. This would be a fun necklace to make at a craft night party with your besties. If everyone brings their nail polish you’ll have lot’s of fun colors to choose from! There are a lot of possibilities.
