I must say, it was nice to take a couple weeks vacation to spend a ton of time with the fam and friends for the holidays. I feel refreshed and ready to get back to DIYing! I am SUPER excited to start the week off with a new Swarovski Gem & Chain Necklace that I have been wearing nonstop.  I think its one of my favorite necklaces yet because people are super wowed when they find out its a DIY! Added bonus: Now you can get all the supplies in a kit HERE! Steps after the break…

What to do: 
Cut two pieces of chain and lay them down so there is crescent shaped gap between the two pieces.
Next cut the plastic sheet to fit the gap.
Glue the chain to the top of the crescent, then start glueing your gems on the plastic.
Once you have your gem pattern in place, glue the longer piece of chain to the bottom of the plastic.
Reinforce the necklace by glueing together the chain on both sides of your necklace. Let glue dry.
Add jumprings and lobster clasp using your jewelry pliers.
Ready to wear!
