DIY KIT | Clearly Gem Necklace
After making my neon earrings, I started playing around with some of my gems to make a statement necklace. I loved the idea of creating a floating gem look, so I glued all my goodies to an acrylic sheet and attached clear chain. The result was a statement necklace perfect to wear with a loose white linen shirt on a summer day…you can visualize it, right? The best news is that you can purchase everything you need for this necklace in a DIY KIT right HERE. And my challenge to you: create your own arrangement, snap at pic and tag it with #ispydiy on instagram. I would love to see what you create! Steps and supplies after the break!
What you need:
3 types of chain: acrylic links, silver curb and silver rhinestone
Silver Lobster Clasp and Jump rings
Assorted Neon Gems
White Triangle Gems
Darby Smart Round Nose Pliers
Clear Acrylic Sheet
What to do:
Arrange your gems on the acrylic sheet, then glue down usingE600. Let dry.
Cut acrylic sheet around the gems to create the floating gem appearance, leave excess plastic on the top corners.
Pierce the corners with a needle, and attach your first jumpring by putting through the hole.
Next, assemble your clear chain the attach with a the jump rings.
Finally, finish by attaching your silver chain and lobster clasp with jumprings.
Feel free to play around with creating different patterns. Done!
