Last week I rounded up some chunky chain jewelry that looked like perfect candidates for a DIY project, and it inspired me to make my own mixed chain necklace.

2. Take one piece of the light chain, and loop it through an end link of the heavy chain.

3. Attach a jump ring to the two ends of the light chain you just looped through the heavy chain, and attach half of a clasp to that jump ring.

4. Loop the other piece of light chain through a link on the opposite end of the heavy chain, and attach a jump ring and the other half of a clasp to the ends.

I made mine in silver just because I don’t wear much gold, but you could easily make yours in any color or style of chain that you prefer. Happy DIY’ing!
