DIY Layered Chain Necklace


After spying this Kenneth Jay Lane necklace, I knew it would be perfect for an easy but big-impact DIY necklace project. The steps are really simple-- just attach mixed lengths of chain together with jump rings-- and the result is an elegant necklace that's perfect for fall and the upcoming holiday season.

Tools and materials:
10mm chain, cut in three pieces: 18 inches, 10 inches, and 9 inches
Jewelry pliers
6 jump rings (I used 7mm, which worked but were a little small, so I recommend larger, like 10mm)



To assemble the necklace, use a jump ring attach one end of the 10 inch chain to the longest chain, 4 inches from the end of the long chain. Attach on the other ends, again at 4 inches down from the end of the long chain. Attach to the 9 inch chain to the 10 inch chain with a jump ring, 1 inch from the end of the 10 inch chain. Repeat on the other side of the 9 inch chain. Complete the necklace by attaching the jump rings and clasp to either end of the necklace. You're done!
