I don’t know why but I keep thinking that this necklace should be named ‘Spiderwoman’. By Kenneth Jay Lane.
DIY hair chain
It’s like a backwards headband. And really cool.
DIY Collar Chain Using Earrings from Small Good Things here. I love Emi’s tutorials because they are so easy to understand and complete. I’ve stopped posting some tutorials where the steps aren’t clear to me.
DIY Chainmail Bracelet Tutorial by How Did You Make This? here. Really clear and well written tutorial. *I made this bracelet in silver several years ago and it took some patience - but I love it. I didn’t have all the colors that are now available to work with.
Ready for a quick, inexpensive DIY tutorial? This tassel chain necklace took me about 5 minutes to complete and only cost about $3.00! Tassels seem to be on trend right now and this necklace is an easy way to bring them into your style.
What you need:
- 2 tassels
- 2 meters of chain
Slide the loop of the tassel through the last link at the end of the chain. Repeat with the second tassel on the other end of the chain.
Make a hitch knot with each tassel to secure them in place on the chain.
And that’s it! I had a bit of trouble finding tassels at my local craft store so the ones I used were just lying around my house and are probably older than I am. They’re a little bland so I’m keeping my eye out for better ones. You can wear this necklace long, or wrap it around your neck one or two times like i’ve shown in the first picture.
Let us know what you think about this necklace!
1) loop chain- long enough to wrap around your wrist twice +3inches or so. I have TINY wrists, and this chain was one foot.
2) thick string, ribbon, or cord (the length of your chain +6 inches)
3) hook or lobster clasp
4) two jump links
1) Loop cord into first link. Knot tightly.
2) Alternate directions while you are looping your cord. You will basically be looping your cord over and under each individual link.
3) When you have reached the end of your chain, tie a knot tightly around the last link.
4) Trim off excess cord and seal both ends of the cord with glue. Mod podge works pretty well.
5) Using pliers, insert one jump link into each end.
6) Attach a lobster clasp.
7) Rock your new bracelet!
Peace, Love, and DIY!
