I love the idea of jewelry making. However... I've tried it and it is just not a talent that I posses. ;) I also hate paying a bunch of money on jewelry, just to have one of my girls break it the first day I wear it. That being said I was beyond thrilled when I saw these gorgeous DIY necklaces at JoAnns. Since I've been doing it, I've also seen similar types of pieces at Hobby Lobby and even Wal-mart. So keep your eyes out when you are in the DIY jewelry or craft section at your local store.
First you pick out the main necklace piece.
Next pick out a matching chain or just a chain that you like. And also pick out connecting pieces that you like.
Attach the connecter piece to the chain.
Then attach it to your main jewelry piece.
