Enjoy spring with a stunning & stylish DIY necklace!




For this summer the hot trend is the chains in all shapes and colors. Combined with ribbons and crystal beads these  chain "knitted" necklaces can be worn all day long!

I decided to make a big impressive necklace with some chains and easy to find materials! check it out and make your own!

Materials you need: 
Scissors
Pliers
Chains in gold and silver
Ribbons in various colours
Beads 
Lighter
Clasps, hoops and straight "needle" wire

Cut with the pliers three sizes of chains to make the width you want. I made three different chains..

Take a look at our past post the "chain mania bracelets" and use the same technique by joining together the chains and the ribbons. Using the lighter "melt" the knot of the ribbon to secure it.

At that point you are almost done and you will have that look on your necklace.
Using the pliers start passing your beads to finish your necklace. I added some orange silicon thread at the end to give an intense color to my necklace...and it's ready!!! Voila!!



Try it! its easy and you ll get a lot of compliments...Every time I wear it, everyone admires it and thinks that it is an expensive ready-made necklace...xixixi...
