Hello Sweets! As I promised you this morning, I’m going to share you a knockoff tutorial of a sweet little necklace that would surely glam up your ordinary shirts :)

Craft Knockoff Tutorial: Western Velvet Jewel Collar original

This is the super cute original version, Western Velvet Jewel Collar, $165 (I know, charming…), by pixie market. It doesn’t look like so, but it is actually a necklace – and goes well with pretty much any shirts! So… ready for the tutorial?

  • 4 jumprings
  • 1 clasp
  • 2 chains, 13cm each
  • 1 bigger chain, about 4cm (for adjusting chain)
  • 2 velvet ribbons, 20 cm each

13) Using round-nose and flat-nose pliers, add a jumpring to the chain so that it forms a loop. Repeat the step on the other end, too.

I can think of a couple of girlfriends who’d enjoy and rock the necklace – yap, I’m slowly gearing my head towards Christmas crafty mode… (and yes, I can imagine me having the necklace in different colours as well)! Have a lovely, crafty weekend, sweets!
