Hey friends, I’ve got a really fun and ultra-easy jewelry project for you to try today! Do you love layered necklaces but don’t know how to create that look? I’ll show you how to layer necklaces with the new Layered Looks jewelry collection. The sets are perfect for beginners, with everything you need to make matched necklaces all included! You just need a couple of basic jewelry-making tools, and you can make a whole set of layering necklaces in minutes.
First things first: choose a set you love. Which could be tough, because there are SO many different styles and themes to choose from! I’ll be showing you photos of the silver chevron kit in today’s photo step-by-step.
How to layer necklaces supplies:
- Layered Looks Jewelry Making Kit
- Jewelry Pliers & Wire Cutters (I recommend getting the 5-piece jewelry tool set if you’re just starting out)
You will notice that two pairs of pliers are shown here, which isn’t absolutely necessary, though if you have two pairs, it can be helpful to open and close jump rings when you use pliers on both sides of the opening.
Repeat to additional necklaces, varying the length of the chain to make a great coordinated set!
If you’re a fan of YouTube videos to learn new techniques, I’ve also got you covered today! I’m also sharing this how to layer necklaces video with you that shows you how I made all three necklaces in the river crystal kit in about 5 minutes!
I love making jewelry, and I love the simplicity of these charm necklaces, so I hope that if you’re considering getting started, you try out one (or a few!) of these kits for yourself, because it really doesn’t get any easier than the Layered Looks line. Happy crafting!
