DIY: Ribbon-Wrapped Paperclip Necklace (Anthropologie Inspired)

Just wanted to share my version of Anthropologie’s $168 Acrobatics Necklace. Instead of using vinyl, I used silk ribbon, and opted out from adding the extra paperclips for “fringe” effect around the necklace. HOW I DID IT: I wrapped silk ribbon around jumbo paper clips, and secured them with hot glue. Using small jump rings, I attached the paperclips together. I honestly might use this piece more for wall art than actual accessorizing – it has a very gemoetric, artistic, sculptural feel to it. Let me know what you think!
