DIY: Tory Burch inspired Rope + Metal Ring Necklace

SHORTS_5

I originally saw this necklace on Tory Burch’s website and was inspired to create my own rendition.  I love how they took rope and wove it through metal rings to create something that feels very substantial.  The necklace is a mix of nautical meets edgy and I am pretty obsessed with the pattern that the metal rings make when you weave them together with the rope.

Rings-+-Rope---Materials

Materials:  Twelve Dark Gray (Hematite) Metal Rings // Twelve Silver Metal Rings // E6000 Glue // Rope (two pieces, each about 24″ long) // Four Silver Barrel End Caps // Lobster Clasp // Four Jump Rings // Masking Tape (not pictured)

Ropes+Rings-1-4

1.  Pour a little bit of glue into one end cap.  // 2.  Glue your rope into the end cap.  // 3.  Repeat on the other piece of rope. // 4.  Allow to dry, and then tape the other two ends of your rope together.

Ropes+Rings 5-8

5.  Pull your rope through the first of your metal rings.  // 6.  Place the second (dark silver) ring over that ring, as demonstrated above.  // 7.  Weave your rope up through the space between the two rings.  // 8.  Add another silver ring below the dark silver ring as demonstrated above.

9.  Weave your rope back down through the space between the two rings.

Continue weaving your rope through the rings… a nice little pattern will form!

Once you’ve used all twelve rings of each shade, your necklace will look like the above!

Add two end caps to the remaining side, and then a clasp + a jump ring… and you are all done!
