Last week I talked about a '90s trend I've been loving: Chokers! (If you didn't see the post, check it out here!) And guess what? This week's obsession also happens to be a throwback to '90s fashion: Wrap necklaces! (Who knew that era was going to be such a gold mine?) However, instead of being glamorous grunge like the tattoo and velvet chokers, these suede bolo/wrap necklaces are paying homage to the western phase that ran rampant during the days of Kurt Cobain! The craziest part of it all, though, was when I went to purchase some for myself. I discovered they ran from $30 to almost $60! So that's where the idea for a DIY came into play. All of these materials amounted to less than $20, so I'd estimate each necklace cost less than $5 a piece!

1. Scissors
2. Pliers
3. Sueded Cording
4. Waxed Cotton Cording
5. Gold Wire
6. Charms
7. Ruler/Measuring Tape 

See the tutorial here, that takes you step-by-step through the super easy DIY process!
