When Soph and I first saw THOSE striking images from the Chanel Fall 2012 runway our hearts basically gave out. We just couldn't resist getting our hands on some of those jagged edged, violet colored amethyst and crystal gems then DIY'ing until our little fingers bled.
p.s. thank you to those who came out to our haute-DIY event at soho house last night where we made variations of this crystal necklace along with these and this and those and these. xx
How to: DIY Raw Crystal Necklace
