DIY Memories Necklace

If you have some childhood treasures laying round and you don’t know what to do with them. Consider turning your  childhood  ‘jewellery’ into a one of a kind big memories necklace.

It’s super easy! Just take all your bits and bobs that you want to incorporate into the necklace. Choose your favorite parts and start threading the beads. If you don’t know what materials to use, they sell a lot of accessories for making jewellery @Veritas (clasps, special threads, elastics,…).

Close the thread and you’re done! Now you can start to wear your memories from time to time!

Let me know if you’ll be making one!
