I’m obsessed with this picture (originally found via Pinterest)! Not only is she ridiculously beautiful, but who knew spikes could be so elegant? I was wondering where I might be able to track down this necklace when something came over me.
I rarely have this feeling because I’m not a crafty or creative person at all, but immediately I thought “I could totally make that myself!” And I was right. My version is practically identical to the designer necklace. And best of all, it was really, really easy to make. (And cost very little.)
Supplies: I just sort of guessed on their size and bought 53 mm spike beads for $12 (total) from this Etsy shop. (I bet you could find cheaper ones if you did a little digging around online.) I already had a set of jewelry pliers (about $15 at Michael’s), a chain (about $3), some brass rings (about $3), and a fastening clasp (about $1), laying around from a brief jewelry making phase I went though last year – so I didn’t have to purchase any of those. And this is how I did it…
Worth it? Definitely. This only took me about a half hour, and now I have a beautiful spike necklace (that I’m wearing today!) I hope you try it for yourself!
