DIY Silver & Gray Charm Necklace

I got some more pretty new beads from my newest favorite online bead supplier: Prima Beads!  Seriously. I used to love Fusion Beads but now they charge for shipping.  I am not a fan of shipping charges when buying beads. Good news is Prima Beads has all free shipping so I can shop for beads and not feel guilty about racking up shipping charges :) With my beads I made this fun and flirty silver/gray tone chain necklace. It's super easy to make!

Here are the direct links to the chain and different beads that I used in this necklace:

Besides the beads you will also need head pins, eye pins, a clasp and jump rings, as well as needle nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters. 

The first step is to use needle nose pliers to hook an eye pin onto a chain end. Add the largest pearl (I used 8mm) and then form the other end into a loop and connect to another piece of chain. I spaced mine out about 10 chain links each.

Keep cutting pieces of chain and connecting them with pearls until you have the base of the necklace in the length that you desire your finished necklace to be.

To make the charms that will hang from the chain, string a 6mm crystal, 6mm pearl, and 4mm crystal and 4mm pearl onto head pins.

Use needle nose pliers to bend the head pins back 90 degrees directly above the bead

Use wire cutter to snip off excess wire - you only need a short tail

And then use your round nose pliers to bend the tail into a loop

Use needle nose pliers to help hang the beads on the chain, squeezing the loops shut with the pliers after attached.  I hung four beads between each large pearl: 4mms, 6mm pearl, 6mm crystal, and another 6mm pearl

After you are done attaching all the charms, use a jump ring to attach a clasp on the back with pliers. I left my last links of chain in the back bare because I ran out of crystals because I made two for me and one for my etsy shop :)

After the clasp is on, your done!

I made my necklace on the longer side to be able to hang down to complement my tops.

Dainty and pretty - I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of this new necklace (especially since I wear gray like every other day!!!!)

Now to just organize my jewelry so I have somewhere to put this pretty....

I'll be linking up to these parties:
