When Soph and I first saw THOSE striking images from the Chanel Fall 2012 runway our hearts basically gave out. We just couldn’t resist getting our hands on some of those jagged edged, violet colored amethyst and crystal gems then DIY’ing until our little fingers bled.
How to: DIY Raw Crystal Necklace
You will need:
16 inches of chain
5 raw crystal or amethyst beds
2 jump rings
6 inches of 24 gauge wire
1. Cut two 8 inch pieces of chain. Thread your wire through one end of chain. Create a loop with the chain inside leaving 1/4 inch excess wire. Wrap excess wire.
2. Thread gemstones through the wire attached to chain.
3. Repeat step 1, attaching the other end of chain. Wrap and cut remaining wire. Attach clasp with jump rings.
