Anthro Inspired Necklace

I found this beauty of a necklace on Anthro’s website and thought it would be fairly simple to imitate for a lower price tag! I also spotted some similar ones at J.Crew a few weeks back!

I sewed a long tube of fabric and then turned it right side…. that was the hardest part! Getting it turned the right side. Beads were slid into the tube and knots tied between the beads. I finished off the ties by tucking the fabric in and sewing them closed. I added one flower that I hand stitched on.

It’s definitely not identical to the Anthro one but I think it turned out cute!

I totally forgot to take a pic of it on… it’s cuter on! But, I gave it to my sister for her birthday so hopefully, she will get a picture wearing it.


  1. WOW, love love it! How did you make the little flower to go on it, is it folded fabric?

  2. Love, love, love this idea!

    I also want to know how you made the flower!

  3. I'll show a little tutorial on the flower. Long story short, it's circles of fabric folded in quarters and sewed on. I made a tulle flower using the same technique this week.

  4. You are absolutely so talented! I'm amazed!
