DIY: Statement Necklace




I am going to end this week in the best way I know possible, with a DIY! After realizing I had a crazy amount of broken chain and old necklaces I was not using, I decided to turn them into one statement necklace.  I was jazzed on the outcome, it is perfect to dress up a LBD for a holiday party, or could make the perfect Christmas gift (Mom, pretend you did not read that).

How to Make it:

1: Gather all the old chains and broken necklaces in your jewelry box. If you do not have enough stop in at your local second hand store and pick up some cheap chain necklaces (I usually pay 25cents to $1.50 for mine)

2: Lay out the chains on a flat surface and arrange the chains in a
“U” shape mimicking how you would want them to hang around your neck.
You will need a pliers to make some chains shorter.

3. String a large jump-ring though the end of each change to secure
each side of the necklace. Make sure the chains are in the same order
on both sides.

4. Tie a ribbon bow on each side of the jump-ring, leaving enough
ribbon to be able to adjust the knot in the back making it a longer or
shorter necklace.

5. Finishing touches: add a flower broach to one side for an extra
special occasion!
