Layering Tube Necklaces

Layering Tube Necklaces

In case you haven’t noticed, my current jewelry obsession is layering necklaces. We layer everything else in Fall, why not necklaces too, right? Here is my latest project; I love the simplicity of the design, the mixed metals {so I can wear them with anything}, and how easy they are to create! Here’s how I did it in less than 15 minutes and so can you…

Layering Tube Necklaces

Step 1: Cut your chains to the appropriate lengths.
I made my gold necklace 18″ and the silver one 16″. If you want them shorter or longer, feel free to adjust them to your liking.

Step 2: Thread the corresponding tube bead onto each chain.

Step 3: Add and secure a crimp to each end of your chains.
All you do is lay the chain inside the little channel, then squeeze the crimp shut tightly around the chain. Give it a little tug to make sure they chain won’t fall out, and you’re good to go! Repeat for your other necklace.


Step 4: Attach a jump ring to each crimp loop, and a clasp on one side.
If you’ve never worked with jump rings before, just use a pair of pliers to gently twist them open and closed…I promise, it’s easy peasy. If you want your necklaces to be attached, you can use one jump ring through both crimp loops, but I like to keep mine as two separate necklaces so I can mix and match them with other pieces or wear them one at a time.

Ta-da! It’s really that simple! Now you have not one, but two gorgeous necklaces! Wear them together, or wear each one separately, depending on your outfit. What do you think? Would you wear these? Are you in love with layers too?
