Today my cute friend Caitlin brought me these two little charms and asked if I could make them into a necklace for her.
Well of course I can! And you can too. Here's how!
-Round Nose Pliers
-Needle Nose Pliers
In the future I would try to match the metal color of the charm to the chain, etc. This project was a little short notice though and I only had silver/gold available. We thought the silver looked nice with the rhinestones on the owl's belly.
Step 1: Pick out a couple other beads that will complement your main charms. We will make these beads into charms too!
Put the bead on a headpin,
Bend the headpin back at a 90 degree angle with your needle nose pliers
Trim the excess wire with wire cutters
And then bend into a circle using round nose pliers.
Step 2: Add this charm onto a jump ring, and then squeeze the circle shut with needle nose pliers.
Step 3: Add on the other beads you choose and one of the main charms.
Step 4: Connect this jump ring to a jump ring holding the owl charm with another jump ring.
Step 5: Thread some chain through the top jump ring
Step 6: Add a clasp onto the end of the chain
And now you have a cute owl charm necklace!!
I'll be linking this up to all the parties in my header!
