How to Make Statement Chain Necklace Tutorials

By on Monday, August 26, 2013 4 Comments

Chain is one of my favorite components to use.  Add several chains in a single design  or go big and you've got a statement necklace!  Alternatively, bling it up with lots of crystals! The tutorials here are not hard to make but will require some patience to put them all together.  This lovely set is called the Contessa and it is from the Cousin site.



Cousin also has a wonderful statement chain necklace tutorial called Haven.  Well named!


Their Sia chain necklace tutorial below is a little different but just as dramatic.


Can't deal with too many itty bitty chains?  Compromise and use chain with bigger links and make it a multistrand one.  Cousin's  Bits and Pieces Golden Delight necklace tutorial has 2 toggle clasps which do double duty as design focals. Neat!


Or you can simply go bold with big links!  This tutorial is from the Dollar Store Crafts blog.


Rebecca from My Girlish Whims guest posted this wonderful crystal and chain necklace tutorial.  Great way of adding big crystals on both sides of the chain. 


Now go to town with chain!

  3. Divya - Not only are the toggles a focal element in the front, they also help make unfastening and fastening easy!
