DIY: Chain Necklace

Went at school this morning to clear out my unfinished business regarding clearance process. Thank God I'm already cleared! :) and at last, after a week, I was able to go out and visit the town. 

I dropped by a garment store here in our place and bought the garment that my Mom told me to buy. I noticed the chain hanging and asked the saleslady about it. Good thing it was only 20 php (<$1) per meter so I bought it. I remembered the DIY I saw on youtube about chain bracelets so I never doubted and immediately bought the chain after knowing how cheap it was. Made the necklace right away after I got home :)

What you will need:
-Small and large chain
-Small rings (connectors)
-Piece/s of stretchable cloth
-Long nose and cutting pliers
-Needle & thread

 Collect the materials and other things that you think you could use like tape measure, beads, etc. Using the cutting pliers, cut the chain according to your desired length.
 Insert the cloth inside and out of the chain using the needle and tie the cloth when it reaches the end. I decided to make it two layers so I made the first one longer than the second.
 Draft the design you want to do and then connect the ends of the two chains using a small gold ring connector (not sure about what its called).
Before sealing the connectors on both sides, insert the smaller chains which will serve as the strap for the necklace. I wanted to make it adjustable so I cut the first small chain shorter than the other.
 To make the look cleaner, I decided to sew the ends of both cloth and then I loosened the ties.
Place the lock at the end of the chain (the shorter small chain) using the ring connector and then you're done!:)
You could also make bracelets out of this! :)

As easy as that! Now, you wouldn't have to spend bigger money to purchase expensive accessories online or anywhere else because you could do it yourself! I'm thinking about making a lot more designs so I wouldn't mind any more about accessories when I go out to special occasions. There are a lot of tutorials that I could base to make my own. 

I hope you like it! Have a good night! <3
