Link Necklace with Martha Stewart Jewelry

When I came home one day and found a brown box on my doorstep, my first reaction was “Huh?  What did I buy on Amazon THIS time?”  and then “Huh?  What did Drew buy on Amazon THIS time?”.  Then I finally looked down, and imagine my glee when the label said “Plaid Crafts” – yeah!  My Martha Stewart CraftsJewelry supplies!

I looked on good ol’ Pinterest for some inspiration, and found this Anthropologie necklace that I just fell in love with.  It’s the perfect amount of bling while still being perfectly work acceptable.  After looking through my craft kit and having a bit of a hard time with the polymer clay molds, I decided to make my own Anthropologie knock-off.

Supplies Used:
Martha Stewart Crafts Jewelry Beads – purple Czech beads
Martha Stewart Crafts Jewelry – silver chain
Martha Stewart Crafts Jewelry Tools – Round-nose Pliers
jump rings
necklace clasp
glass beads
clear filament

Cut a long length of the filament (or fishing line) and tie a knot at one end, leaving a loop in place.

Take everything out of its packaging and start threading the beads onto the filament.  I realized the seed beads I wanted to use were too small, so I switched to some glass beads I had left over from my Crochet Friendship Bracelets.

Alternate the large beads with the smaller beads until the desired length or until the beads run out.

Cut the filament on the other end and tie a knot to secure the beads, leaving another loop in place.  Using jump rings, attach the chain to the filament loops on either end of the bead strand.  If the necklace is long enough, you won’t need a lobster clasp, but otherwise, you may need to break the chain and insert a clasp at the back of the necklace.

Here’s my version of the link necklace!

    This is beautiful!! I actually prefer what you’ve made to the piece that inspired you. I’ve never made jewelry before, are there videos on you tube, or somewhere else that will explain the making of this step by step?

    Hi One Dog Woof Editing / Marketing Team,

    Good day!

    I noticed that you guys take on sponsors/donators – I’m interested in purchasing some space, I think it would be a great fit for both our websites!

    I’m looking to do something native, in the form of content, as opposed to banner ads.

    Do you accept sponsored posts? I can provide the content if necessary.

    We are also interested in giving a donation to any events you may host in exchange for a link somewhere on your website.

    Thanks,
