Statement necklaces need not be heavy affairs.  Nor do they have to require hours and hours of work. One way to make an open yet attention grabbing design is to make a multistrand looped necklace.

Sonia of the Runway Hippie blog was inspired by Tom Binns' much more elaborate Ethno Teknick collection so she came up with her own design. (update - the tutorial is no longer available).

Her delightful choice of colors and the openness of the design makes this a wonderful piece for the summer!
