Quick Layered Necklace {DIY}

Quick Layered Necklace

This is a quick tutorial on how to turn prestrung beads or a beaded necklace into a tiered necklace.

Decide how you want the necklace to lay and fold the beads. Use needle nosed pliers to add a jump ring to each end after its folded.

Quick Layered NecklaceAdd desired length of chain to jump rings and finish with a clasp. I left part of the chain as an extender by adding a jump ring a few links from the end.

PS – I party here!

  4. This is a great idea. I’ve got quite a few necklaces I’d like to link together and I’ve seen similar in shops and they charge a fortune. I’m going to try making these. I’m also featuring this at tomorrow’s Thriving on Thursday party. Thanks so much for linking up.
