Sure, you've been gifting dad a tie since you were, oh, four.

We’re all heart eyes all the time for the woven art trend … especially when it comes in a form we can wear! That’s why we absolutely love this necklace from Jo Gick, crafter extraordinaire and contestant on season 1 of NBC’s Making It. Bonus: You don’t even need a loom to weave it up!
