DIY Delicate Necklace

Perfectly understated, this DIY delicate necklace is easy to make, and I'm so excited to layer the whispy gold chain with a turtleneck or chunky knit sweater. I love the eye-like shape of the navette crystal connector I used here, but you can find them in other cuts, like rectangle, round, or square. The important trick is finding the right size jump rings to go with your chain. I recommend going to a bead store to buy in person to make sure you have sizes that fit with the links of the chain.


Tools and materials:
Jewelry pliers
16 inches of delicate chain, cut in 2 8-inch pieces
4 3mm jump rings (or rings that fit your chain)



Using the small 3mm jump rings, attach a chain to either side of the crystal connector.


On each end, connect the chain to a 5mm jump ring with a 3mm jump ring. Open up one of the 5mm jump rings and close around the loop of the clasp. You're done!
