I am happy to be back in the swing of things and I am starting today off with a DIY necklace. I showed you this necklace last week, it is the one I wore to my birthday dinner with my hubby. It is just a simple alteration to make it more my style.
I think the results work for me, what do you think?
Here is how I did it.
~ Needle Nose pliers
~ Jump Rings or extra chain length
~ Metal Clippers
~ I found this necklace at Wal-Mart on clearance. Yikes, it was a little much for me. I am not very tall (as in I reach 5’1” if I stretch ) so when I wear a necklace that is too big for me it looks like I am weighed down. For someone of my height more is not always better
~ Take your necklace and cut off the parts you don’t want. I am saving them for another project.
~ After I took off the parts I didn’t like I found that that the necklace was a little short, so I added a length of chain so that it fit me.
~ When you cut off the unnecessary pieces, save what you can you might need it for later. I reused the metal clips holding the two pieces together.
And that is it! Simple alteration to make the necklace into a necklace that I will wear all the time.15
