Celebrate New David Bowie Exhibition With Handmade Necklace, Says Cookson Gold

(PRWEB UK) 23 July 2013

Jewellery making retailer Cookson Gold has taken inspiration from David Bowie for a new jewellery making how-to guide.

The unofficial guide was created to coincide with the 'David Bowie Is' exhibition at Londons Victoria and Albert Museum - a celebration of the rockers five decade career, featuring costumes, music, film art and jewellery.

Bowie fans can use the guide to make a necklace inspired by the stars legendary glam rock look, with flamboyant colours, bold patterns, and Ziggy Stardust-style star-shaped beads.

Cookson Golds guide has ten easy steps, accompanied by how-to images and helpful tips.

Fans can buy everything they need to make the Bowie-inspired necklace on Cookson Golds website.

Adam Hunter, eCommerce manager at Cookson Gold, said: So far, 2013 has been the year of David Bowie. He came back from out of nowhere with a new album, and has had his career commemorated with this exhibition at the V&A Museum.

There are a fair few Bowie fans here at Cookson, so we thought this was the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to the superstar.

Our experts have created a great necklace that wouldnt have looked too out of place in Ziggy Stardusts jewellery display."

We went for a boldly-coloured, star-themed design, because so many of his songs look to the stars for inspiration, like Starman, Lady Stardust, and The Stars (Are Out Tonight)."

Its really easy to create your own Bowie-inspired necklace with our guide. It makes a great gift for a Bowie-loving friend or as a treat for yourself if youre visiting the 'David Bowie Is' exhibition.

Or, you can just glam up with the necklace, grab a hairbrush microphone and rock out in front of the mirror.

Best of all, you can find everything you need to make the necklace and countless more jewellery making projects on our website.

The David Bowie Is exhibition is the first of its kind, and features more than 300 pieces, such as costumes, handwritten lyric sheets, photos, film, music videos and instruments from various points in his career.

The exhibition is open to the public every day until Sunday, August 11 (2013).To view the David Bowie-inspired necklace How To guide, visit:
