XXL Necklaces are a MUST to complete a good look this season. Big rhinestones, metal pieces and the mixture of gold and silver is no longer “NO NO”. Instead of investing a lot of money on one of these necklaces, why not do it yourself and recycle your old accessories … Yes! you heard! RECYCLED! Would you like this necklace that frames your face, draws attention and creates a shinny show on your neck? DIY DRAMA necklace!!

Plan B a n n a · e v e r s DIY Drama necklace materials

Materials:

  • Base (leather, plastic or felt)
  • Earrings (you already have to recycle)
  • Chains (you already have to recycle)
  • Rhinestones, crystals jewelry, buttons and studs
  • Transparent Strong Glue
  • Spray paint silver or gold
  • Scissors
  • Punch
  • Rings and jewelry closure

Plan B a n n a · e v e r s DIY Drama necklace step 1

Process:

1. Make a half moon template and transfer the paper figure to the leather. Cut the shape of the base where you will glue all the accessories and beads. Punch holes every 2cm on top to mount the chain.

2. Paint this base with spray paint.

3. Let dry well. If you find metallic colored leather you can skip this painting step.

4. Start from the center working out to the sides. I glued an old chandelier earring in the middle as a centerpiece.

5. Border the center piece with chains or a strip of rhinestone glue it with the transparent glue.

6. Keep gluing the pieces the same on both sides. I mixed gold with silver pieces for a more interesting look.

7. Try gluing the pieces as close as possible. When you are finished with the large pieces, fill in the small gaps with diamonds and rhinestones with the help of a toothpick for better accuracy.

8. Divide the chain in half and mount a ring that will start in the middle of the leather base.

    This turned out so beautifully! I love it! I have so much broken “junk” jewelry that I could use for something like this.

    By the way… we’re having a DIY submission contest over on our blog for free ad space next month. Just in case you’re interested 😉 I’d love to see some fashion posts submitted, because I just adore them!

      Gracias Henar!

      Los cristales los puedes encontrar en bazares orientales, mercerías (como Cobián en Madrid o Santa Ana en Barcelona), también los puedes encontrar en algunas tiendas de abalorios…
      Las piezas azules que me muestras puede que las encuentres en alguna de las tiendas de la calle del Call por el barrio Gótico o el Raval en Barcelona.

      ¡¡¡Suerte!!! Espero que encuentres lo que buscas :)
