Alright, look. I love Anthropologie as much as the next girl, simply because their clothes are usually beautiful and their window displays are always amazing.
But, I often find myself checking out their jewelry thinking “I could make this.” And today, I’m going to show you the steps to make three lovely necklaces.
The first is this amazing beauty that they’re charging $128 for:
Step one: Find a covered cord.
Step two: Start making a knot, but don’t finish it!
Step three: Attach random beads and a peach ribbon.
Step four: Attach clasps
Step five: Admire your hard work that cost $5.
Next up is this delightful piece that retails for $168.
Step one: Dig out that scarf you own.
Step two: Tie it around your neck.
Step three: Add a long strand of pearls, real or fake.
Step four: Laugh as you save $168!
And, finally, this is the necklace that tipped the scales for me. Retailing for $29.95, the most overpriced rope you’ll ever find!
Step one: Buy rope, or steal it off a boat. (Just don’t get caught!)
Step two: Tangle it.
Step three: Sew or glue the tangled areas together
Step four: Add a little gold detail, could be chain, could be an old tooth. Whatever’s lying around.
Step five: Attach the clasp
And you’re done! Now, if you didn’t know before, obviously this is joking around, but seriously. $168 for a scarf and FAKE pearls? You’ve got some nerve Anthro. You really do.
PS- Cher was my inspiration for this post. She sent me the picture of the rope necklace!
