Happy Friday Everyone!
I am so happy the weekend is finally here! I have a weekend full of catching up with friends and family and relaxing/trying to get over this silly cold that just doesn't want to go away...who gets a cold in the summer?!? I do apparently...Anyways! A few years ago I started making jewellery mostly earrings and necklaces and I always found it so relaxing to do while watching TV or just sitting around with friends. Lately I've gotten back into it and made this (super easy) ombre necklace that looks so cute by it's self or layered with other delicate necklaces. This is very easy to make and most supplies can be found at your local craft store or even Walmart. Enjoy!
Tools: Beads, wire, thin chain, wire cutters, needle nose pliers, and flat end pliers(I couldn't find mine so I had to improvise)
Step 1: Cut your chain with the wires cutters to your desired length. If you're not planning on adding clasps and would just rather be able to slip it over your head then I would recommend cutting the chain at around 22" which is what I did.
Step 2: Next cut a piece of wire to about 3" because we want it a bit longer so you have some room to work with.
Step 3: Feed the piece of wire through the end link on the chain.
Step 4: Wrap the wire around your needle nose pliers leaving some extra room on the end.
Step 5: Using the flat end pliers close the loop as tight as it will go to ensure it does not come off the chain. After loop is closed, cut the extra wire off the end OR wrap around the wire.
Step 6: Feed on the beads that you have picked out, I chose to do a deep purple ombre look which I love!
Step 7: Repeat steps 4&5 on other end of wire and you are complete! (If you decided to use clasps then you would cut the chain at the top and attach the clasp)
If you ended up trying this DIY out then tweet me a picture because I would love to see it! (@beautybyttwo) Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
