What’s the newest trending supply in jewelry making? It’s Bungee Cord! Bungee cord is a stretchy nylon cord that comes in many different colors, and gives a bright, funky look to jewelry projects. And it’s easy to work with, too! For this project, I added some blingy Mix & Mingle beads to bungee cord to strike the perfect balance between casual and dressed up. I call it the DIY bungee cord bling necklace.
DIY Bungee Cord Bling Necklace Supplies:

Step 3. Time to add the bling! Unstring the Mix and Mingle beads and add them to the DIY bungee cord necklace in any configuration you want. You can add them all to one strand, or disperse the beads between the strands.
