DIY: Statement Necklace..

Hello Made By Girl readers! I'm Jenny May from the Swede Records.  
I'm so honored to be on Jen's team! I really do hope you enjoy my DIY creations & that they inspire you to try something new for yourself. 

For my first project, I decided to recreate this statement necklace that I found on Pinterest.  My jaw just about dropped to the floor when I saw this beauty.  I could not for the life of me find the necklace to purchase anywhere so I decided to give making one on my own a go... 


First, gather your teardrop pendants (I found mine at an antique store for $25).  The middle pendant should be bigger than the rest.





Be sure to test out different nail polish colors to find your desired color palette.




Start off by painting several coats of nail polish on each pendant but only paint one side of the crystals. 




Let the pendants dry, then add a clear top coat for chip protection. 
 




Next, securely place one gold brass ring in each small opening on the pendants.  
 


Finally, position and set each pendant on the gold chain.  I left about an inch of space between each crystal.  The side of the crystal that is not painted should be facing outward as the color shines through beautifully. 
 
Et voila! I was so happy with the end result.  It turned out to be a lot easier than I thought and it only took a little over an hour! 

Pair this necklace with a black dress and stilettos and you got yourself the perfect statement necklace for the Holidays! 

If any of you readers make one of your own, be sure to send Jen or myself the results so we can share them!  Happy Holidays!
