Picture of DIY Ethnic Inspired Necklace

Ethnic and tribal pieces of jewelry always attract me; the colors and patterns are so inspiring and filled with love and energy!

When I started sketching ethnic-inspired jewelry designs, I was tangled and so confused! I mean, where should I start from? From which ethnic design or pattern?

So, I did a little research and had to stick with the colors and shapes, easy and fun for a first attempt. I'm very happy with the final result and surely making more versions of it very soon.

Check out the ible and find out how to make this inspiring necklace!

Thanks so much! I didn't think of the closure when I started. Goodness it was felt so I stitched the string!
