After falling in love with the new song Gifted by NASA featuring Kanye, Lykke Li, and Santogold I wanted to see what else I knew from the artist I'm least familiar with. Turns out that I knew this song by Santogold but always thought it was something from another fave of mine Tegan & Sara.

I like her outfit, and her hair.

I think it would go well with one of these geometric necklaces. A DIY project.

DIY Accessory - Geometric Jewelry
Modern jewelry trends are taking a style note from ancient civilizations. Bib necklaces, cuffs and modern earrings are starting to resemble hieroglyphics or something out of Cleopatra's jewelry box.

As we've learned from designs by House of Harlow, Eddie Borgo, and Missoni, wearing a statement piece of jewelry isn't all that complicated. That's why we're showing you how to do it yourself. 

Take some inspiration from your ancestors or the runway to create a one of a kind necklace. 

You'll discover beauty in the simplicity of this inspired-by-the-ancients DIY project. 

What you'll need-

-Long tubular beads about 1.5 " long
-Jump rings
-Eye pins
-12 inches of chain

Step 1 - Lay out your beads in the geometric pattern you desire,the possibilities are endless.

Step 2 - String one eye pin through each bead making a loop hole at the end with your pliers.

Step 3 - Using your pliers attach the beads to one another to create a triangle pattern.

Step 4 - Attach your chain to the geometric design with your pliers, jump rings and clasp.
