DIY Bar Lariat Necklace
Let’s talk real life. I have a Real Housewives obsession. I live
I saw Vicki (RHOC) wearing a necklace similar to this one, and I immediately loved it! I honestly didn’t want to take the time to hunt one down on the internet, so I decided to pull out my jewelry kit and make my own. That might sound stupid to you, but it took me about 10 minutes to make, and I guarantee it cost me less and took me less time than if I had bought one online.
If you love it too, then here’s a quick tutorial to make your own!
- 24″ small mm chain (I like to use the smallest I can find!)
- 1 double sided connector bead (try this!)
- 1 base bead
- Jewelry tool kit
- 2 jump rings
- 1 lobster clasp
Step 1: Measure the length you want your necklace to be and cut the chain.
Step 2: At the midpoint of the chain, attach the base bead.
Step 3: Add the lobster clasp at the end of the necklace, and a jump ring. Clasp the necklace together.
Step 4: About 6 inches (eye ball it), add the connector bead into the necklace. You should be able to attach this without using any jump rings.
