The Savvy Girls Guide
To Making Your Own Necklace
I am one of the least crafty people you can find, so when I wanted to do a DIY accessory post, I knew I had to get the expertise and advice of the creative and kind Nadia van der Mescht from Cupcake Couture. Nadia is a South African based arts and crafts designer, specializing in exclusive wedding accessories, exquisite vintage-inspired corsages and stationery. She creates one of a kind pieces according to your personal taste and wedding day theme. Here Nadia shows us how easy it is to make a beautiful and trendy lace necklace.
Step 1 & 2
Gather what you will need:
A piece of lace – you can find some at a haberdashery or even search for a vintage piece in your grannies sewing box.
A small, sharp pair of scissors
Small jump rings: available from most craft or bead shops
Put the jump rings onto the ends of the chain using the pliers.
Step 3 & 4
Step 3Make a small hole in the lace. Make it slightly away from the edge so that the jump ring doesn’t rip through.
Thread the jump ring with the chain attached through the lace. Do the same on both sides.
Step 4 & 5
Pull the chain to a peak at the centre this will allow you to find the middle easily. Bend open a link and add the lobster clasp and jump ring.
This shows how it should look once done.
All done! An easy DIY with a pretty result
Special thanks to Nadia for her lending her time and skills to this guest post. I hope it will inspire you to create your own unique neckpiece.
