Chunky Tortoise Chain Necklace

Today’s jewelry project is inspired by our beloved craft ninja, Candie Cooper and her DIY Halloween Jewels Blog! We are going to make a Chunky Tortoise Chain Necklace…

Chunky Chain Purple and Brown NecklaceI cooked this beauty up in a snap! The difficult part was deciding how to arrange my beads!! Hehe.

Acrylic chain for beading, $12 per meterFor this particular necklace I used Artisan Strand #33, Stoneware Strand #8 ,a few extra matching single bead pairs, and the chunky tortoise chain to complete the look!

The purple beads you need, from Jesse James BeadsMake sure that the lower strand is 4-6 beads longer than the upper strand, this will create a seamless, layered look! Once I was satisfied with the bead arrangement, I cut out my desired length of tortoise chain. I then strung my beads onto gold 49 strand stringing wire and crimped it right onto the tortoise chain, no jump ring required!

Smile! Purple beads love youHappy Beading Y’all!!
