I am by no means a crafty person but I do have a bit of a background dabbling in jewelry making. I've had this great layered, faux pearl necklace for quite a while. I fell in love with it at the BCBG store. But then it eventually snagged on something and a few strands popped off. It went into the "to be fixed" basket which should be named "on a cold day in hell" basket. I f you live in the Kansas City area like I do, that day seems to be here (6 inches of snow and still falling) so I dived in to get creative and show you necklace layering on a budget.
~an inexpensive chain picked up at hobby store
~a few jump rings (about $0.50) and a lobster clasp (around $2 for silver).
The strand of faux pearls was still intact so I attached one end to a jump ring, attached the inexpensive silver colored chain to the same jump ring, and repeated on the other side to another jump ring. Add the lobster clasp and you have a two strand necklace.
But it's boring, so we layer:
Since it's below freezing and I just can't resist, let's give her a sassy black leather jacket and send this girl out into the world!
With this start and a little more time and shopping, imagine what we could come up with! What are you excited to make?
