DIY: Chunky Jeweled Chain Necklace
A few days ago I took the BuzzFeed “What Career Should You Have” quiz (here) that said I should be a designer. Maybe it meant I should be a jewelry designer, because we all know how much I love a good piece of bling, daaaarling! I love pieces to be overstated and bold. I love anything vintage, gold and covered in jewels. I love the work of designers like Loren Hope and Lulu Frost. And I love to make my own pieces, so maybe my BuzzFeed quiz was right!?!
I came across this chain at H&M for $10 (here) and knew I had to embellish it with jewels. I’ve been collecting these sew on craft jewels for years. Seriously, I’m distracted by anything shinny so every time I come across them, I buy them! Luckily you can shop one of my favorite jewelry supply stores in LA online. The Bead Factory (here) has a great collection of jewels in both gold and silver settings. Use a little E6000 to apply your favorite jewels to the chain in whatever design you desire. The unlimited options, in my opinion, is the best part about this project.
