Neon glowing rope necklace DIY

On day light

I made this necklace putting the neon and the rope trend together. I wanted to make a fun statement necklace so I added a little something: the glowing effect so my necklace lights up at night. The rope I bought for this project is very beautiful: shiny and silky. In order to keep this effect I painted only one side of the rope with glowing paint so the necklace is the double faced. I can wear the white side during the day, turn it and wear the yellow side at an happy hour with friends and see it glowing during the evening, basically it's 3 necklaces in one.

Ho realizzato questa collana ispirandomi al trend neon e aggiungendoci un elemento in più: una vernice fosforescente che illumina la collana di notte. Siccome la corda con la quale l'ho realizzata è lucida e setosa ho deciso di dipingere la collana solo da un lato ottendo un accessorio double-face. Potrei indossare la collana bianca durante il giorno, girarla dal lato giallo per l'aperitivo e vederla accendersi man mano che la giornata volge alla sera. Che ne dite? Vi piace?

2 metres of  rope - glow in the dark paint
2 metri di corda - vernice fosforescente
I tied the rope: this is a flower celtic knot, see the tutorial below
Ho annodato la corda realizzando un nodo a fiore, guardate il tutorial qui in basso

and then painted it
e poi l'ho dipinta
