This Italian Pendant gives off a rich sophistication. We love how the natural essence of the stone works well with the antique chain. We felt that doubling the chain adding a very modern polish to the otherwise simple DIY.
2 ½” Acrylic Pendant
6MM Metal Link Chain
Cut your chain in half using your pliers.
Bend each chain in half once more.
Add a jump ring to the 2 ½” Acrylic Pendant. Be sure to open your jump ring in a North to South direction.
Attach the middle portion of your chain to the jump ring prior to closing it. Repeat this step for the opposite side as well.
Your necklace will look like the below image at this point.
Connect each of the outer chains with a jump ring.
Attach a clasp to one end of the chain.
There you have it! Your doubled chain necklace!
We’ve combined some of our favorite M&J materials to create this jaw dropping lucite gem stone necklace.
Tear Drop Pendant Style No 45063
Shimmering Marbleized Acrylic Pendant Style No. 31859
5 MM Jewelry Metal Chain
Cut the felt into a unique shape. This will be used as the base of your necklace, so make sure your pendants will fit comfortably on this surface.
Once you have created the base silhouette, lay the shape down on a flat surface. At this point, you will plan out where each pendant will sit.
Using your E-6000, apply a small amount of glue on both the pendant and the fabric. This allows the glue to hold much better over time.
Continue gluing each pendant down until you are satisfied with your necklace.
It is not time to attach the jump rings and the chain.
Depending on how you would like the necklace to hang, you can place the chain closer to the center or closer to the side. Just be sure to make the points are an equal distance apart from one another.
Since our chain is long enough, we can easily put it on and off without a clasp. What do you think of our gem stone DIY Necklace?
Even though we’re loving varsity embellishments on sweaters, jackets, beanies and scarves we opted to go in a different direction. Inspired by Lanvin’s Fall 2013 collection, we created this Varsity Letter necklace.
