Did you ever see the episode of Sex and the City where Carrie was given a beautiful diamond necklace by Aleksandr? No? Well you know what you need to do, don't you... Now whilst the diamond necklace didn't last too long in the episode, it certainly made a lasting impression on me and is the inspiration for this DIY. I love how this necklace is so simple to make yet so effective, I've already had a tonne of compliments whilst wearing it! So without further ado her is how you can make your own...
You will need
5cm of silver craft wire
1 x 16inch trace chain necklace
A pair of round nosed pliers
A pair of wire and pin cutters
1) Find the middle of your necklace and cut away the jump ring. This will create two even pieces of chain.
2) Take your wire and round nosed pliers and create an open loop at one end. Hook this onto one end piece of your necklace and then tighten the loop so it will not come off.
3) Thread your Swarovski crystal beads onto the wire
4) Create another open loop at the other end of the wire to secure the beads. Hook this onto the other piece of your necklace and then tighten using your pliers. It's as easy as that!
