Double Chain and Pendant Necklace

double-chain-and-pendant-necklace.jpgLike chain? Here’s an easy project that adds life to ordinary chain.





  • jump rings
  • lobster-claw clasp
  • pendant
  • two types of chain, preferably one more ornate chain and one simple chain


First, let’s cut some chain! Decide how long you’d like your necklace to be (I prefer shorter ones, and I think it works well with this design), and cut both styles of chain equal lengths.

This will extend your necklace, so that it will be adjustable. Some days you may like it short, and other days you may like it longer, so why not be prepared for both, right?

    if it is shaped like a donut you can wrap wire around it and form a
    wrapped loop, then wrap on the other side of the loop…then I curl the very ends of the wire and press against the donut. If what you have is a large bead with a hole going up and down the stone then put a silver head pin in and creat a wrapped loop at the top to hang it from
