Easy DIY Long Bohemian Gemstone Necklace

July 29, 2015

Long pendant necklaces have been very in style the last couple of years.  Whenever I go into a trendy boutique, the displays always have several of these necklaces layered over bohemian chic clothing. I decided I had better make one myself! You can use any large gemstone, your choice of chain and charm. I like the antique brass finish the best. This project is really quick and easy, but turns out very elegant!

DIY: Greek Leather and Jump Ring Sparkly Necklace Project

June 18, 2015

Jump rings are designed to connect things. Connect chain to clasp. Pendants to chain. Charms to bracelets. But what you may not realize is that jump rings also make great spacers! I like to use them on leather cording to space sparkly beads or pearls. This project is really easy, fast, and great to do with beginners, as the skills required are pretty basic.  And while the skills are basic, the end result certainly is not.  These necklaces make a real statement and are great solo or layered!

April 17, 2015

They can take some time to make from scratch, but luckily we offer beaded chain that makes creating a beautiful rosary easy. So check out the instructions below to see how to create this pretty rosary.
