Gold Pearl and Chain Knock-Off DIY Necklace

I'm always on the lookout for pretty jewelry designs that I can recreate on my own.  A few months ago I opened up an email from LOFT (any one else get like 50,000 emails from them a week???) and spotted this beautiful pearl and gold chain necklace.  I immediately knew I could DIY my own version, and I was pretty sure I had almost all of the supplies on hand to make it too! Check out this comparison:

Not too shabby of a knock-off, am I right??? I have loved wearing my version! Let's not talk about the fact that I made this necklace to wear during Christmas and now it's April and I'm just now getting around to blogging about it.  Whoops!

Ah well...since my last tutorial I've been busy with a few things like...getting ENGAGED! :) I sense some more crafting in my future...for wedding projects!

The good news about this necklace is that even though it looks pretty busy and store-bought, it really only uses simple jewelry making techniques to make it. 

If you want to learn how to make your own version, check out the instructions below!

Supplies:

Needle nose pliers, round nose pliers, wire cutters, six strand clasp (affiliate link), 4mm pearls, 8mm pearls, 10mm pearls, eye pins, head pins, chunky gold chain, crystal charms, 4mm jump rings, 6mm jump rings, and beading wire (I used .45mm in gold)

Instructions:

The first strand of this necklace is made up of 4mm plastic pearl beads connected together in a chain. To make the chain, string a pearl onto a head pin.  Using needle nose pliers, grasp the pin directly after the pearl and bend the wire back 90 degrees. Use wire cutters to trim off all but about a 1/2 inch tail of wire.  Use round nose pliers to grasp the end of the pin and bend it back around the pliers to form a circle.
