DIY Concrete Jungle Bead Necklace

This tutorial shows you how to make a concrete necklace using free formed concrete beads and leather strapping

by Craftbits (shellie wilson)

What you need

Cement
1 yard of leather strapping
Pair of gloves
Skewer

Instructions

Start by mixing your cement following the instructions on the packet but hold back a little of the water as you need this mix to be firm and not pour-able.

Wear gloves ( I didn’t and my fingers were very wrinkly and tender for a few days) Form three balls around a skewer. I made mine in 3 different sizes.

Allow it to dry. You can varnish these for a cleaner finish. Thread onto the leather strapping as shown in the picture above.
