Kaleidoscope Necklace

About this design:

I love a layered look, and I especially love the look of paperclip chain, so for this design I layered a few different styles of chain and added in colorful bead links for a light & summer-y inspired necklace.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Paperclip Chain
  • Lobster Clasps
  • 24 Gauge Wire
  • Jump Rings
  • Peruvian Turquoise Round 6mm
  • Chakra Chips
  • African Glass Seed Bead Mix

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Use the wire to make bead links with the gemstones & seed beads. Attach the links throughout your desired lengths of chain (either attach them directly to the chain links or attach with jump rings).
