The latest issue of ELLE has some great advice from E. Jean, and a necklace from Louis Vuitton that's so expensive, we knew we could make it ourselves... You'll need: A wide strip of white or pink lace - at least two inches across and two yards long. Wooden beads. White, pink, red, and violet paint. Thread (or dental floss, which we used...) Step One: Paint your beads with a white background. Step Two: Etch tiny flowers and abstract designs onto each bead. If you're feeling particularly like Paris Hilton, you can paint tiny LVs into your pattern. Step Three: String the beads with thread. Step Four: Wrap each bead individually in the strip of lace. Tie a small knot in between each bead with the lace to keep the pattern in place. Be sure to leave six inches of lace at each end of the necklace to make a final bow. Step Five: Wonder if Louis' last show was really inspired by Scarlett Johansson, or by Marc Jacobs' favorite arts and crafts counselor at camp... --our LV inspired necklace was made by Kevin Khuong and modeled by Natalie Matthews
