Orly Genger Knot Necklace


This Orly Genger  knot necklace is simple and totally doable for a DIY! You don't need mad skills to make it, either. Just some clay and a chain will do!
AND... you will save yourself $150 DOLLARS. Wow.



I made mine more of a grey-silver scheme because I had a silver chain. You can make your knot any color you want!


Simple and chic.


Step 1: Gather materials. Needed is a necklace chain (preferably a box chain to get the same look), clay, clear gloss and a paint brush.


Step 2: Take a marble of clay and roll it into a thin snake about 2.25" long. Cut the ends nice to make them clean (with an Xacto or tissue blade). Tie this carefully into a knot, not pulling tight to keep an opening in the middle of the knot for the chain.


Steo 3: Bake your clay knot (I did about 125 degrees in my toaster oven for about 15 minutes or so) until it's cured.
Let cool, paint with clear gloss. Insert chain through opening in knot!
