More Stunning Chain and Bib Necklace Tutorials

By on Thursday, July 22, 2010 7 Comments

Making a bib necklace takes time. So the easiest way to finish the rest of the necklace is to use chain. The resulting designs will look trendy and look like it cost a lot!  Check out these latest chain and bib tutorials from amazing DIY artisans on Cut Out and Keep who make and share.

This absolutely stunning pearl and chain bib necklace tutorial is by the UK based Beads Unlimited. I am inspired to make one for myself!

Beads Unlimited also created the Berry Nice bib necklace tutorial. The use of a large selection of really big beads really fill up the bib portion. The use of a single fruity color palette is inspired.


This wired design tutorial is also from Beads Unlimited called Wrap with Wire. With the use of vivid blue colored wire, the necklace does fit their description - electrifying!  The designer used lightweight aluminum circles. If you cannot get those, consider using metal washers from your local hardware store. There are tons to choose from and these are available in different sizes


Slashgashterrorwhore created this whimsical recycled magazine bib necklace tutorial. Colorful and oh so eco.


This is Bobu Couture's version of the Denim Shag Necklace. The original tutorial is by Jenna C. Makes you want to keep all your old jeans!

  3. I love the eco designs! All crafters should try to use a little eco in their stuff at least once. That said, they are all just beautiful. Thanks for sharing the fun stuff you find.

  5. Just when I decided to create my first 'bib' necklaces... there's The Beading Gem, psychicly (sp?) sending me the PERFECT post once again. The first pic is my favourite for inspiration - but I'm also 'diggin' the washers wrapped with coloured wire idea. I hope you'll let me know if there are ever 'awards' etc. I can nominate you for... This is definitely the best blog I know. Kinda hard to ask someone to nominate you for something I suppose, but I'd likely miss such a thing. Maybe I'd better go looking for that. The amount of GREAT information here is astounding!

  6. Aww. That's kind of you to say that Tamara. When I said my blog was an inspirational and informative one, I meant it! I like collecting bits of information so this blog also functions as my own notes which you all get to see!

  7. Such variety from pearly classic to denim contemporary; each so unique ! Can't decide which I like best; the Berry Nice bib is so fun and pretty but the Wrapped With Wire is very dynamic and eye-catching, while the pearls are a timeless classic with a cool spin to it. I did check out the "Cut Out and Keep" site to view the instructions on the Berry Nice bib but will have to figure out some of their terminology like; what is a Bolt Ring and is a cup the same as a bead cap?
