Statement necklaces are such a fun and simple way to add to any outfit! :) I've been having a hard time finding a casual one for everyday wear so I decided to make my own. I found everything I needed at Michaels and with all the 40% coupons, I was quite happy with the end result!
Step 1: Divide your beads in half.
Step 2: String the first layer of beads onto the wire.
Step 3: Once you reach the end, twist the wire into a small loop and finish stringing the second layer with the remaining beads.
Step 3: Seal the other end by twisting the wire into another small loop. Cut off any excess wire.
Step 5: Make sure the loops are just big enough for the jump rings. If the loops are too large, simply twist it down to the desired size and attach your rings.
Step 6: Attach the clasps onto both ends of the suede cord.
Step 7: Attach both ends of the suede cord and chain onto the jump rings.
For this necklace, I kept it simple and made the necklace just long enough to fit over my head. However if you'd like it shorter, you can also cut the cord and chain shorter into two separate pieces and attach additional clasps and jump rings to the other ends too.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
