Here’s a simply chic necklace with an unexpected twist -- it’s made of materials commonly found in the hardware store. All you need to make your own is a length of cotton rope and a pair of aluminum sleeves and glue.
While it's often considered to be more of of a utilitarian necessity than a decorative accent, rope can really shine in many rooms. Its nautical heritage and rough-hewn texture is perfect for creating a laid-back, beach house feel. Try these ideas to pull a room together.
