Boys Necklaces

I was walking with Kai to pay for the new pair of sunglasses he'd chosen from Primark when I spotted these mens necklaces. I found them rather plain but envisaged I could use the beads mixed together to make a patterned necklace, and maybe stop Kai raiding mine!
I snipped each thread right by the knot so I could use the elastic in them again.
With adding a few of my own beads this is what I came up with.....
2 necklaces for both of my lads, with loads of beads left over

Here's Zack with his, I used the brown and cream beads, and added 2 larger beads to put either side of the surfboard charm I had.

& heres Kai with his. I used the black and cream beads, adding my own red beads. I need to get more elastic to make this one larger as though it fits perfectly at the moment Kai grows very quickly and I dont want gaps in the necklace. The elastic in the necklace is extremely stretchy, stretching to almost 3 times the size of the necklace so I have no worries with Kai wearing it.

I also had the biggest compliment I could get from my OH, he's asked me to make him a couple of bracelets like them.


  1. They look so cool! I bet the boys are very proud to wear your creations.

  2. Oh, these are lovely! :-) Great find, and you've turned them into something very special x

    PS I tried to email you but the link didn't seem to work properly, did you get my email?

  3. These are lovely K,your boys look proud to be wearing them. Its just the kind of thing my oldest son wears. Although the one he is wearing now says I love you daddy, made by Willow and her mummy. They made me one from a flat pebble we found on the beach in Wales, I absoloutely love it xx

  4. Very cool and unique which makes them even better. Jaqui x
