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.
- Faceted crystal pendant drops – they come in a gorgeous grey and a smoky brown too.
- Gold plated chain – Ref: 1841G0
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.
