My jewelry box is filled to the brim, thanks to these easy diys. Not only am I loving the different colors and styles, I didn’t go broke buying them from a store. I made eight plus necklaces for under twenty dollars. That’s one necklace if you were to purchase it at a name brand store. No brainer, huh? You’ll definitely see me gloriously rocking my handcrafted jewelry all year long.

Start off by detaching the lobster clasp from the chain. Then open the jump rings with pliers and tweezers.  Attach the detached chain and crimp to one of the jump rings. With other opened jump ring attach the detached clasp and second crimp. With scissors make any necessary adjustments to the ribbon. Note you want it to be an inch shorter than the circumference of your neck. Make sure teeth of the crimps are on top, place velvet ribbon inside crimp. Using plyers to tightly close crimp.
