MY DIY | Double Chain Necklace


I remember back in highschool thinking that gold jewelry was for grown-ups (did everyone think this?),  and stuck to silver, well that and hemp…I love making “jewelry” back then too. Now that I am pretty much grown up,  I can’t get enough of gold. I love the chunky look, so gathered up all the chain in my apartment to make a statement necklace and a bracelet to match. Get the look with the steps below! 

Large Chain
3 smaller chains
Lobster clasp
Jump Rings
Jewelry pliers

How to: 
Group all your smaller chains together, and bend in the middle. Also bend in the middle of your large chain.
Cross the two chains at the bend.
Next, connect the ends of your smaller chain with jumprings, do the same for the large chain
Add the lobster clasp, and your necklace is complete!

    I love all your chain DIYs! Does anybody in Sydney (Australia) know where I can find some chain (similar to the chains in this post) in store? Otherwise, is there somewhere online I can order some for a reasonable price? Thanks! 🙂

    1. Hey Rebecca – Spotlight has some chains (not chunky ones) but you could try etsy or ebay? Or maybe even get some cheaper stuff from DIVA and ripe them apart to make them your own!

    You bun is SO perfect! Is it a sock bun? I have yet to master the art of the sock bun. It’s hard because of my layers.

    I thought that about gold jewelry too, in the late 90’s, early 2000’s. Now I love everything! Silver, gold, rose gold, bronze, even pewter (if you have the right look). Also glass (like in Pandora beads). It’s all beautiful.


  3. Love it! I am definitely doing this! Where do you get your chains?
