I live in New England, so nautical influences are EVERYWHERE. In addition to a fair amount of beach-y, nautical touches in our home, I tend to wear a ton of navy, white, and gray in everyday life. It’s the baseline color palette for my wardrobe. And I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a sucker for a good pair of sailor pants — those buttons get me every time. A more subtle way to add a nautical element to any outfit? Add a rope accent accessory, be it a belt, necklace, or earrings.
Before the summer is over, do yourself a favor and make this Celtic Triangle Knot necklace. It’s a killer statement piece — and it’s not nearly as complicated as it looks, with a little practice. You’ll get SO MANY compliments. Every single time I wear mine, I get asked where I bought it. People are shocked when they find out I made it. And now you can, too!
The smaller the diameter of the rope you use and the tighter you weave the knot, the smaller your Celtic Triangle will be, so you can gauge whether you want to make a necklace, a bracelet, or even earrings! Once you’ve woven your knot, trim the ends, add a dab of glue and a couple of end caps, and pat yourself on the back. Go ahead — get your nautical on with a one-of-a-kind statement necklace.
