Try out this super simple DIY to make your own neon chain necklace. I saw the pricey version at J Crew but thought that with some supplies I could recreate it on my own.

    Step 2

    1. To create a gold chain necklace, use pliers to open a large gold jump ring and hook both ends of the chain to it. Use pliers to close the ring. I ended up putting three jump rings at the back of the necklace but one will work fine.

    2. paint! You could do a pattern, multiple colors, get creative!

    3. after it dries, you can use a q-tip soaked in nail polish remover to clean up any boo-boos you have. (I'm sure yours will look better than mine.) At this point you can also brush clear nail polish to seal the paint, but I don't think this step is necessary. :)
