MY DIY | Stone & Rope Necklace
DIY PROJECT, Jewelry DIY
As much as I was crushing on the chain and stone pendents yesterday, I wanted to create more of a standout necklace with a nautical twist to showcase my new found treasure. I think a bracelet version is also in my very near future! Steps after the break.
Rounded jewelry pliers
First, put a piece of wire through the hole in the store
Then, with your jewelry pliers, round the ends to make a double loop. Do this on both sides of the stone.
Next, cut your rope to length you would like your necklace. Put tape on the ends to keep from fraying, and cut so just a small amount of tape is visible.
Put superglue in the end cap, then put the end of your rope into the cap and let dry for a minute.
Connect your end caps to the loops made on each side of the stone with jumprings.
Next, after wrapping tape around the center of the back of your necklace, cut the rope and add end caps with glue.
Finally, add your lobster clasp with the jewelry pliers.
