My sisters and I used to make jewelry when we were younger. I have been inspired by all of the DIY jewelry making out there to make my own. I made a stop by my local Michael's and made two statement necklaces. Here is the first one I made. I love the gold jewelry out this summer so designed this quick piece to share with you.
- 0.018mm necklace wire
- two different sizes of gold seed beads
- Bead tips - they look like this
- 2 - Jump rings
At the end of each strand I placed the bead tip, then the crimp. I squeezed the crimp and folded the bead tip around the crimp and cut off the extra wire.
Then at the end of the stand I placed a jump ring. I did that for all 6 strands and attached them to the jump ring for both sides. For the finishings I attached the clasp to one side and a chain to the other.
