The necklace just looks a lot less finished/ high fashion in person. While I love the look and style of it, maybe try some more finished looking clasps? They unfortunately detract from the elegance of the rope and render this piece a little cheap looking.

About

Do it yourself when you can't effort a fashion accessory.

Some people might shake their heads when they read the headline of my story and I do understand that, because some things you can't do by yourself. Sometimes you need a special education for certain things, but not in my case.

I remember when I travelled to Oslo and visited the Henrik Vibskov Store. The saleswoman there showed me some nice jewelry I hadn't ever seen in my life. It was a double rope bracelet by Sabrina Dehoff. It was a really easy technique and a huge inspiration for ChezKristel.

Two weeks later I stepped into the Alsterhaus in Hamburg, which is a big store where you get nearly everything and bought different sizes and colors of cotton ropes.
It took me a long time to get this thing started, to be exact it took me two and a half years.

In the beginning I started with different kinds of jewelry, because I needed some time to find my style, doing some different necklaces and bracelets with leather ropes, chess pieces and rayon cord ropes. After a while I've recognized that cotton ropes, dying, leather and metal are the material I want to work with. Dying is a really cool thing, because you mostly don't get the colors you want. And because of the upcoming trend of dip dying I found a nice way of combining sailor knots and gradients.
