There's nothing like a good DIY project. This one is super easy! All you need is bobby pins and ribbon.
Be creative and alternate colors, or use one solid color like I did here. I tied this tightly around the neck because it looks great as a choker...gives it lots of African Swag!! Alternating colors like black and gold would give this necklace a greek goddess, egyptian-like feel.
You could also lightly coat some of the bobby pins with a rusty red and use leather instead of ribbon to give it a more earthy, indian sort of feel...the possiblities are endless!! This is such a statment piece.
