I love a good statement necklace. You can wear them layered with a scarf, or by themselves to spruce up an outfit. Check out the tutorial below to see how to make your own bohemian statement necklace:
2. I didn't have eye pins in my stash, so I instead made my own by bending the pin around the tip of a pair of pliers.
3. I then trimmed the flat head tip off the pin, and added my beads onto this end.
4. After adding all my beads onto a pin, I bent the other end into a loop, securing the beads.
5. Instead of closing the chain like a traditional necklace, instead line up your beads pins with each tail end of your chain.
6. Attach your beaded pins to the chain with jump rings using your pliers.
7. Create your bead fringes by adding beads onto flathead pins.
8. Attach your bead fringes to the end of your necklace with jump rings.
This is my first version. I want to create another with turquoise beads, longer pins, and a tapering fringe. (similar to my Darby Smart necklace)
