Valentine's Charm Necklace


Hey Everyone,

Who's ready for Valentine's Day? 

Yeah me neither... This year is just rushing by way to fast already. So if you're looking for a very simple gift to make then look no further!
Today I'm going to show you how to make a simple necklace.

What you will need: Chain, jump rings and 5 charms (heart charms for Valentine's Day)

1. Cut 3 lengths of chain - make them different lengths.
2. Attach jump rings to the charms and add to the end of each chain. 
3. Attach the remaining 2 charms onto the longer chains about half way.
4. Thread all 3 lengths of chain onto a jump ring. Thread onto your necklace chain, attach clasps and voila!!!! 

 It's really easy right?

I love how the necklace hangs when on, so pretty.

Perfect for Valentines...

Take care

Escape - A Necklace

 Hi Everyone,

Remember I said I would be showing off more finished pieces here on the blog? 
Well here is my latest creation.
 A whimsical birdcage and bird charm necklace designed to be worn long at 80cm in length (approx 31 inches).

I have one listed on Etsy at the moment, but this time I will be making one for myself. I love the chunkiness of the birdcage, don't you?

Take care
