Going into 2013 there is so much color in fashion. This Colorful Statement Necklace DIY is a fun and easy way to make a layered necklace with pops of color.
Supplies to make your Colorful Statement Necklace:
- 1Rhinestone necklace
- 1 Short piece of large chain
- 1 Short piece of black chain
- 4 Jump rings
- 7 Large rhinestones
- Nail polish 1 or 2 colors
- Super glue
- Tacky dots or double stick tape (optional but they help with painting)
Start with your rhinestone necklace and your nail polish.
Your rhinestone necklace can be a very inexpensive one, I only paid $4 for this one and it came with earrings.
Lay your necklace out on a flat surface and decide where you want to add color.
Carefully paint each stone with your nail polish.
TIP: Using your tacky dots or double stick tape, put one tacky dot or a small piece of tape on the surface you are working on and set your rhinestone on top.
This will really make it easier when you are painting your stones, they wont be moving around so much.
Once your stones are on your tacky dots, paint each one with your nail polish.
Lay your large chain out flat and evenly space the large rhinestones you just painted.
Use your super glue to glue them to your chain.
When all your nail polish and glue are dry, you will add your chains to your necklace using your jump rings.
Put one jump ring in the end of your black chain and attach it to the chain on your rhinestone necklace.
Do this for both sides and for your large chain as well.
This necklace is really fun and a simple way to get that layered necklace look. By adding color to rhinestones youll take your necklace to a whole new level.
This Colorful Statement Necklace DIY looks great with a basic t shirt or really cute with a dress. I love the versatility.
Have fun with it.
