DIY Spring Necklaces

Mar 20, 2014

Ansley's Necklace

Since today is the first day of Spring I’m going to share how to recre­ate two neck­laces that will com­pli­ment any of your spring out­fits. These are quick and easy to make. I cre­at­ed this neck­lace for Ans­ley, she loves lots of col­or and the NEO cut chains are per­fect for her style.

To recre­ate this neck­lace you will need NEO cut chains in Pur­ple 5 x 3mm, Lime Green 5 x 3mm, Turquoise 3.5 x 2mm,  NEO Find­ings 6.5mm Pur­ple Jump Rings as well as pli­ers and wire cut­ters.

Using wire cut­ters, cut the fol­low­ing NEO chains to these lengths… Pur­ple 18″, 14.5″ and 8.5″, Lime Green 10.5″ and Turquoise 2 pieces cut to 12.5″. Please note this is a long neck­lace if you want your neck­lace short­er just cut to your desired lengths. Now begin attach­ing the chains to a jump ring start­ing with the longest chain first. Once you have one end of each chain on the jump ring, using pli­ers close the jump ring to secure the chains. Now repeat these same steps with the remain­ing ends of the chain. Once fin­ished the chains should look like the pho­to below. Place the longest chain around your neck and BAM you are done!

Terri's Necklace

Ter­ri’s neck­lace is super super easy. She LOVES green and sim­ple so this neck­lace is per­fect for her. Notice the tas­sel. How cute does it look on her neck­lace? I just love coral and lime green togeth­er. To me it screams SPRING.

To recre­ate Ter­ri’s neck­lace you need a real­ly long as in 2 yards long piece of Lime Green NEO cut chain, a 6.5mm Lime Green Jump Ring, wire cut­ters and pli­ers. Attach both ends of the lime green NEO cut chain to one lime green jump ring, close the jump ring to secure the chain. That’s it there is your neck­lace. Ter­ri likes to loop her neck­laces to cre­ate dif­fer­ent lengths so this works per­fect­ly for her.
