Romantic Roses
I fell in love with Oscar de la Renta's Rose Necklace when I saw it on video from their Spring/Summer 2013 collection runway show last year (which is now available for sale). In addition, after seeing J.Crew's Beaded Rose Necklace in their current Spring/Summer season, I just couldn't resist but to try a version of my own.

  • How to make a necklace. Diy Rose Beaded Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    What you will need:
    Large sized clay rose beads - I used two sizes, the large is about 2 inches in diameter. Here are a few options.
    Gold chain
    E-6000 glue - you can buy here
    A tooth pick or wooden skewer
    Jump ring and closure
    Loose rhinestones (I cut a few off a chain)

    Step 2

    Trim the gold chain to desired length and attach the closure to it. Then position the roses around the chain. The spacing is entirely dependent on your own preference. If I had found larger roses I would have placed them even close together (similar to the J.Crew option).

    Start from the middle section, take one rose and apply a dab of E-6000 glue to the backing (read instructions for use if this is your first time).

    Step 3

    Adhere the chain to the back of the rose as shown below. Apply additional glue on top of the chain, this will make sure you have enough to secure the rose to the chain.

    Continue the same step with remaining roses.

    Let the necklace dry for at least 2 hours. Once dry and the roses feel 100% affixed to the chain, glue a loose rhinestone to the center of each rose.

    Wait for necklace to dry over night.

    Final product!!! I paired mine with a white blouse and jeans. A necklace like this deserves the spot light, so don't over power with too many other accessories. I love how Oscar de la Renta paired their white version with a striped gown, I would LOVE to wear that combo. Perhaps I will try a white version for the upcoming wedding season!
