As a busy mom, I’m all about multitasking. So if I can find (or DIY) an accessory that can be worn several different ways, then I’m all over it. Which is why I’m calling this necklace the bold title of ‘most versatile necklace ever!’ I love that it can be worn as a short necklace or as a pendant. Or even wrapped on your arm as a bracelet. Plus, you can make it in colors that complement your wardrobe – green and blue were my choices, since they’re my favorites.
Supplies needed –
- 15 green stones or beads
- 26 gauge gold wire
- 2 gold beads
- T-shirt you don’t mind recycling
- Jewelry pliers with wire clippers
1. String the green beads onto the wire. Finish with a gold bead and bend the end of the wire into a small loop with the pliers. But don’t close the loop all the way! Just close it enough so that the beads don’t fall off.
2. Clip the other end of the wire, leaving a bit of excess length. Add the other gold bead to that end and curl the wire into a loop.
