give the gift of DIY

I have forever been a fan of delicate pieces. During the week I keep my jewelry simple and light. This necklace is one of my favorites that I have made and has made great gifts for me in the past. Want to make you own presents this year? Try making this simple necklace.


beads, chain, hook, jewelry wire, wire cutters, needle nose pliers


1. Use wire cutters to cut your chain to desired length

2. String beads to jewelry wire {make sure the wire is slightly flexible}

3. Using needle nose pliers, wrap the ends of the beaded jewelry wire around both open ends of your chain, in order to secure

4. Use wire cutters to cut the chain, in order to attach closure hook, to what will be the backside of the necklace
