Good Morning!! With the weather cooling down a little bit I thought this is a great project to tackle on the weekend! Plus it looks super easy...! Have you done any jewelry at home?

Here is the step by step:

You will need:
* wire cutter and pliers,
* chain,
* crystals (with holes),
* eye pins (one per crystal),
* clasp of your choice.

1. Cut chain to desired length.
2. Using pliers, attach a clasp to the end of the chain.

Very industrious.... and a nice jewellery DIY alternative to friendship bands which are too much the rage in my opinion! Perhaps you can do an outfit post featuring this soon :) Pip xx
