Design It Yourself: Wire Wrapped Jeweled Necklace

Hello dahlings and dolls. If you didn't know this about me, I'll tell you now. I'm an ACCESSORY FREAK, seriously. I have tons and tons of necklaces and bracelets and earrings. But, I only have one problem. Out of those tons, I only wear a few key pieces. But, take me shopping and I'll grab any piece of accessory in sight. So when I saw this DIY project, I just had to share it with you.

What you''ll need:
1 Bag of large plastic jewel stones
1 Sheet of plastic canvas
1 Yard of ribbon (local fabric store)
20 gauge wire
Glue (hot glue)

What to do:

Take your plastic canvas and an 8 inch plate.
Trace around the plate and cut out.
Cut inside your cut out circle to make a 1 inch thick ring.

Start glueing your stones to your plastic canvas. Mix up your colors and shapes. Keep adding until it’s all filled up.
Do not fill up your whole circle. I recommend only going up about half way, other wise it gets too stiff and you wont be able to put it around your neck.

Once you’ve finished glueing on all your stones, you can start wrapping your wire.
Start on the back side and tuck the end of your wire into your plastic canvas and crimp to hold.
Keep wrapping until you’ve wrapped the whole thing.

Take your ribbon and cut it in half.
Glue one end of each piece onto the back of your finished jeweled and wrapped necklace.

This necklace would be a beautiful addition to any girl's jewelry box. And these colors are perfect for the transition we're making from Summer to Autumn.

Fashionably yours, Amira J
