An Eye-Catching Bib Necklace You Can Make At Home

Matthew Williamson is no stranger to the ornate. Routinely creating eye-catching pieces, the designer’s looks always make a statement. So it comes as no surprise that Williamson’s Nordic folk culture-inspired Pre-Fall 13 show was rife with fanciful fur and stunning sequins. But out of all the gilded wares, we zeroed in on the collection’s chunky Beaded Bib Necklace ($825).

    Step Two

    Use a hot glue gun to attach the studded trim along the top of the bib. Beneath that, adhere the grosgrain ribbon, followed by three rows of blue beads. Don’t forget to glue two pieces of grosgrain ribbon to the backside of the bib—this will go around your neck and act as your chain and clasp. Trim off any excess material.
