So I saw these cute charm necklaces. Dainty with tiny charms. And they were $30 apiece. Um, say what? Granted they were made from real sterling silver but dude, $30? I wanted 3 of them and that would have been $90 for a set that I’d just wear here and there. THAT is absolutely, freaking ridiculous!

But like the walking and talking anomaly I still really, really wanted them. This is the type of time that I am very happy to be crafty. Like, very happy. I held out and finally went to the hobby store to buy charm bracelet charms when they were half off. I found a little set of tiny rhinestones, the letter “A” and an infinity symbol. Besides the A these don’t mean anything to me, I just liked the way they looked. So it’s not like I’m all Allison + rhinestones forevah or anything. But that is probably true.

For this project you need:

Here are my supplies. The first thing you want to do to make the necklaces stacking are to cut 3 lengths of chain. My pieces are 15, 17 and 19 inches.

Turn the chains into necklaces by adding clasps. Here I put a lobster clasp on one side with a small jump ring and then a larger jump ring on the other end for the clasp to catch on to.

Find the center of your chains with the clasp at the opposite end.

Attach your charms to the center with small jump rings.

And there they are! Now I just knew I had some delicate chain and tons of it at home already BUT the chain I had at home was a lot chunkier than I had thought it was. As such these aren’t quite as delicate I would like. The chains are too thick for the tiny, dainty charms. So when chain goes on half off, I’ll be updating these fun necklaces to be truly dainty!
