Easy Statement Necklace Tutorial
You will need:
- Spacer beads (optional)
- Jump Rings
- Crimp Beads
- Lobster Claw Clasp
- Jewelry Stringing Wire
- Wire Cutters
- Pliers (I used two, but that's totally optional)

This is just approximate, I always cut more wire than I know I'll need. Better to have to cut off extra at the end, instead of starting over because the wire was too short ;)
I stopped beading around 9 inches, but it's totally up to you, or how many beads you have. I usually try to end with a necklace that measures a total of 22" - 23".
As I said before, I like my necklaces to be around 22 - 23 inches end to end when finished. So since my beading was around 9 inches long, I cut 13 inches of chain total.
This is where I use two pairs of pliers, it makes it a lot easier when opening the jump ring, but you'll be fine with one. I only use one pair of pliers to close it though.
And there you have it :) Your necklace is done!
Still a little confused? You can check out my other tutorial, here.
The next two necklaces were made the same way :)
My little collection of statement necklaces so far :) I'm pretty proud of them ;)
The green necklace was my first ever, and this tutorial was my second time making one, it's something you kind of just have to get the materials and go for it. You won't regret it :)
