Update: This project was originally created by Brittni Mehlhoff of papernstitch. I asked her to contribute to this DIY series and she obliged with this wonderful tutorial. What she did not realize is that the original Anthropologie version of this necklace is actually a handmade piece created by Fort Standard. So while we hope that you will continue to draw inspiration from the world around you, we would discourage making an exact copy of an artist’s work, even for personal use. Brittni has decided to remove the tutorial to further discourage this. Thanks for your understanding.
This series has apparently created a good deal of controversy, which you can read about here.
