This is a very quick and simple tutorial to make a piece of jewelry that has just enough of a modern edge to it. I love the simplicity of this necklace.
Here’s what you need:
- Gold Chain (I purchased mine at Michael’s. Look for a smaller/thinner chain)
- 6 to 8mm Jump Ring
- Spikes (I purchased my from M&J Trimming. I bought the spike trim because I was going to use it for something else, but that never panned out.)
- 4mm Jump Ring
- Lobster Claw
Measure a piece of chain at 30″ and cut with wire cutters. My intent for his necklace is that it is supposed to be a longer styled one. Fold it in half.
Cut the chain and add the 8mm jump ring using needle nose pliers. Take the chain and measure 3 separate pieces of chain. I measured one short, medium, and long. I just eyeballed the three different lengths and attached them to the jump ring.
Here is the spike fringe that I purchased from M&J Trimmings. I just removed the spikes by undoing the jump ring and used the existing jump rings on the spikes for my necklace. This was perfect!
Now, attach a jump ring to one side of the necklace at the top and a jump ring with a lobster claw to the other side.
There you have it! A quick and simple necklace with just a touch of spikes.
