Midweek Modness: An Homage To Aarikka

aarikka Finland Necklace

I’ve searched high and low for my own example of an Aarikka wooden bead necklace (the picture above is from Samantha Howard). No dice.

While I love hunting for awesome finds, sometimes I like to make things too. Last week, I saw a packet of colourful wood craft beads at the Dollarama and decided to make a necklace out of them. Thematically, it’s a continuation of the scribble fringe necklace I made a couple of weeks ago. It’s also inspired by a piece I saw on Etsy — I just added to tiers of loops. I call it the Lisa Looper.

UPDATE: After posting this morning about never finding an Aarikka piece this morning, I went for a little amble to the Value Village this evening and I TOTALLY FOUND AN AARIKKA NECKLACE! For $5 even! pictures and details to follow…
