Wood bead necklace by Positively Splendid

DIY Wood Bead Necklace

I always like to give my wardrobe a little update when seasons change, and one of my favorite ways to punch things up is by adding some new jewelry pieces to my collection. It’s amazing what a new necklace, bracelet or scarf can to do create an entirely different look with items I have owned for ages! Today, I’m sharing a new wood bead necklace I made to wear throughout the fall months. These necklaces are a simple, fun project that I can make inexpensively, allowing me to have 3-4 new pieces instead of a single piece purchased ready-made! I also love that this is a project that is totally do-able even for jewelry-making novices. (I promise!) Let me fill you in on all the details.
