i've had this idea floating around in my head ever since my birthday visit to the sealife centre a few weeks ago. there was a huge frame filled with different sailor's knots and they were all so intricate- perfect for jewellery! ever the thrifty diy'er and in keeping with the nautical theme, i grabbed a ball of string and set to work; these necklaces are so so easy to make but so effective, and are a great finishing touch for summery outfits. i have made two different styles- one features the reef knot with loose plaited strands, and the other features the reef knot with the plaited strands then plaited again.
also, i just wanted to say a huge huge thank you to everyone who voted for me in the company blogger awards- i have been shortlisted in the "best crafting blog" category and am super chuffed! it really means a lot to me that so many people share my obsession for crafting and diy's, so if you can spare a minute i'd love for you to vote for me here. thank you :)
