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.
Read on for the instructions.
Heavy chain (about 5 inches)
Light chain (about 26 inches)
1. Measure and cut two pieces of the light chain about 13 inches long each, and a piece of the heavy chain about 5 inches long.
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.
And now you have a necklace.
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!
