Easy DIY Statement Necklace using Charms

Last week I shared a pair of 10-minute earrings and explained how jewelry making tends to take me a long time to design a piece and then create it. So it's a nice change when I make a project that comes together quick!!!  This is another project that is both quick AND easy to make.

The main reason? Most of the design of this necklace was done for me! The charms that make up this necklace have enough design so they made my job easy :)

The chunky chain is from Prima Bead: 18in Chain Gunmetal Large Curb and the fun charms are also from Prima: 4pc Metal Charm Gunmetal/Black Teardrop. You'll also need jump rings, a clasp, and a small chain extension chain (optional), as well as a some needle nose pliers.

 There are not many steps to this necklace! Very basic. All you need to know is how to use a jump ring. Use needle nose pliers to open a jump ring and attach a charm.

Attach the jump ring to the chain and then close.

Continue adding charms along the chain.

Attach a clasp and optional extension chain to the ends of the chain using a jump ring. 

All done! See, I told you it would be easy.

I like how this necklace can jazz up a plain black tshirt instantly!
