I haven't been able to be very crafty lately, and I am sooo sorry! I know you all have been holding your breaths waiting for the next crafty post. So take a deep breath, it is here. You're welcome.
So in case you missed it, heck I even missed it, this post was on Eisy Morgan last week. She was a busy girl on vaca so I helped out with a guest post. Since I was flying cross country the day it posted, I didn't even get to let you guys know that I was over there! So here ya go!
As you all know, I have been dabbling in jewelry making. It has been a ton of fun. Actually, I am going to Downtown LA this Friday to see what else I can get... hehe
Here is my most recent completed project.
Ain't she puuurrty?! I was proud. So get out your jewelry makin' kits and let's make a necklace! I just want to say that anyone can do this with some basic things you might have around the house. I don't even have needle nose pliers, I just used regular ones and it was fine. Maybe easier using the correct ones, but hey, it worked.
Here is what you need:
charms of your choice
pliers (preferably needle nose)
You are gonna love how easy this is. Cut the chain the length you want. Make sure you keep a piece for the charms. Attach the extra piece to a jump ring and then attach that to the necklace. I would suggest not attaching it to a specific ring, but to the chain, so it has moveability.
Add the charms how you want them, as shown above.
I used left over pearls from a necklace that was beyond repair. I used head pins and twisted the top to make a circle. (top right pic) Then attach a jump ring to the circle and attach the jump ring to the chain. Comprendo? I tried to explain it on the pics too.
I used a pearl to be between the necklace part and the chain part. Then I attached my charms I chose. See you can personalize it! I ended it with a tassel.
So what do ya think? I think it was super easy, and that was with using the wrong tools. So imagine what it would be if you use the right ones!
