DIY stone necklace

Here's another DIY post me and Rinske tried out some time ago. I saw this DIY once on the German blog Mia's Little Corner, but unfortunately I couldn't find it anymore. Luckily I keep all of the DIY's that inspire me (with a link, but this time it didn't work anymore.. Bummer!) in a huge document on my laptop. I put some pictures with it, and the description of how I should do this with it, and then I save it for when I've got time.

Enough about that, let's go DIY!

What you'll need
- Some stones
- Wire
- Necklace chains
- Jewellery craft pliers

What you'll do

First, cut a piece of wire of which you think it will be long enough, then make a loop in the middel of the wire. Twist it to secore the loop.


Then you have to wrap the wire around the stone for the first time. Make sure you wrap it around very tightly, so the stone won't fall out.


Then just start wrapping the stone in wire, the way you like it to be. Again: make sure it's wrapped around the stone tightly. Also make sure you cover each angle of the stone, so there's no way it can fall out!


Cut the loose ends of the wire. The back of your pendant looks quite chaotic, but that's OK. People will only see the front of it, right? ;-)

And here are the results!! On the first pic, you'll see the result of my stone necklace, and on the second you'll see Rinske's result!



Do you like this DIY? And will you be trying it yourself? Or have you already made one? I'd love to see your result! There's also an option which is perfect for your summer holiday. You can check this DIY out right here. It's pretty much the same idea, but then with beach stones! So first you're gonna have to spend an afternoon on the beach, relaxing in the sun and finding some pretty stones, and then after this day, you can make this necklace to remind you of that perfect beach day!

Does this sound good, or does it sound perfect?
