I've been coveting lots of necklaces from Express lately. You know the ones, they're long and have lots of cool stuff on the pendant. Problem is...
They're $45. Is this gal going to pay $45 for a necklace? Not likely. I know absolutely nothing about jewelry making, but I took a crack at making one anyway.
I knew I wanted a long chain and I didn't have any, so I took two shorter chains and connected them. Easy peasy.
I have no jewelry making supplies whatsoever, so I grabbed hubby's needle nosed pliers and some old jewelry and stole the jump rings off of them. (This is how little I know about jewelry making, I had to google to figure out that the thingies that hold your pendant to the chain are called jump rings.)
I figured out which pieces I wanted to use and then I played for a while to figure out how I wanted to hang them.
I had a turquoise chain from the feather earrings so I used it to stagger the pearl and the love pendant at different heights.
Then I just put all the pieces I together on the jump ring and put the jump ring on the chain! Not too shabby for a free project eh?
