Spotted: A DIY necklace

Good afternoon readers!

Today I’m sharing a DIY that I gave a little peek to you all of in my monthly round up last week. It’s a project I found over on Glitter Guide – one of my favourite daily reads and just had to get me some of.

I’m a huge fan of a statement necklace, but I have to admit that often when I try them on I feel like they really take over, or are wearing me rather than the other way round. Perhaps the well spaced chain or the clear crystals makes this one easier to wear but I love it!

I do have to confess however, I am a bad bad DIY-er and actually asked my Mum to make this for me. It’s a super easy DIY and I could have done it without much effort. (so don’t be put off!) Not only was I a bit time strapped but my Mum makes jewellery all the time, so it was much easier and she scoped out the best place to find the parts you will need 😉

I always find half the battle with DIY projects like this (particularly from the US,) is that it’s difficult to track down the component parts so I thought I’d include links to what my Mum used to re-create it.

PJ Minerals is the shop she uses (in Ainsdale, Southport, if you happen to be local!) but it has an online store which all the links above are for, and where you can also find the clasps, links and tools to make the necklace – Bead Sales.

I think all in all she estimated it cost about £4 to make, and I think it would make a fantastic gift for your friends this Christmas.

You can find the whole DIY crystal drop necklace tutorial over on Glitter Guide.

Love,
Rebecca

  1. I love this! I used to work right by Hatton Garden and used to grab semi precious beads and chains from a gorgeous little shop there, and I made (and sometimes sold) little pieces of jewellery all the time. Since moving to Canary Wharf I’d forgotten all about it, but this has re-ignited my interest…. and thanks for the online supplier tip too… seeing as Canary Wharf has made me super-lazy! 🙂
