DIY: Chain Link Necklace







This is the easiest DIY ever -- even the DIY challenged can pull this one off. The hardest part is probably trying the find the chain link necklace. I always go to Etsy to get my little DIY crafts. I got both my chain links from the Etsy store CrushCrush. That's all you need-- 2 chain links! 


Steps:
1. Take the ends of your chains and have both of the open pieces out.
2. Slip the open slots into each other. 
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 on opposite ends.
4. TA-DA! You have a chain link necklace!

I got this idea after seeing Liz of Late Afternoon post photos of her wearing Adibur Kibur's Silver and Neon Chain Link Necklace (which is now sold out on Shopbop).
