DIY woven chain necklace


Christmas might have been and gone but let's hope 2013 holds plenty more excuses to get your glad rags on. Fancy outfits require fancy jewels, which are not always affordable or easy to find so let's start the year as we mean to go on with a bit of DIY action.

This is another great tutorial from HonestlyWTF that shows you how to make a woven chain necklace step by step. You can adapt it to add as many or as few chains and threads or beads as you like. The same idea could even be used for bracelets if you want double the bling.

To begin, you will need:

    • 1 foot of large rhinestone chain
    • 3 feet of curb chain cut into three pieces (two 12" pieces and one 10" piece)
    • 3 skeins of embroidery thread
    • scissors
    For the full how-to, descriptive photos included, go to Honestly WTF

       Here are some other alternatives from different blogs and websites to help inspire you.




      Have you tried making one of these before? We would love to see it if you have.
