Non Traditional Valentines Jewelry
Instead of the traditional Valentines Day jewelry in red and silver, how about a necklace like this? Made with faux turquoise, chain, and a locket.
This bib necklace is very easy to make. You need about 18 inches of chain, (longer or shorter depending on your preference), a locket, and a 5 inch chain of beads. Find the center of the chain and the center of the chain of beads. Lay them out straight next to each other. Move the beaded chain in towards the center by 1/2 to 3/4 an inch on each side and attach to the chain on each side. Use a jump ring and attached the locket just above where the chain and beads come together on one side.
Easy and fun to make, try using some of your broken or vintage bits of jewelry at the bottom of your jewelry box.
