Picture of DIY Proenza Schouler Rope Necklace
Proenza Schouler's rope jewelry makes a bright and bold fashion statement.  You can easily recreate these these bracelets and necklaces for super cheap!

I first came across this line of jewelry on HonestlyWTF.com.  They did a DIY version of Proenza Schouler's Rope Necklace. 

Check out my fun photo shoot in an alley near the office!  Thanks to Wade and Karen for helping!

figured out the spiral and the necklace came out great--made it with a little thinner rope for the first one ---and make the necklace so you could lenghten it or shorten it with the knot system they use on bracelets--couldnt believe what they charge for the real thing onl ine!!!! Wow!!! thanks for sharing--and by the way--they look the best with a printed top--even if the ropes are a totally different color--cant figure it out but they do!!!!

i think randofo that it's ok not to wear any pants, and just your bikini bottom, on the beach. by the way amazing necklace! good find!

How come the original model remembered to put on her giant necklace but forgot to put on her pants?

I think the necklace is supposed to distract from the no pants situation.

Oh. Hmmm. Someone should make an Instructable on how to distract people from noticing that you left the house and didn't put on any pants... 1-2-3 NOT IT!

She didn't forget ... she's on the beach and is wearing bikini bottoms! I'm guessing she didn't take her t-shirt off cos with all those bracelets & the necklace there's no way she's getting in the water lol

a soldering gun with a wide blade makes a nice clean cut in rope and gives just enough melt to keep it from fraying... great looking necklace...
