A necklace that can be worn with anything. Also its easy to make.
This is a fun necklace to wear with almost anything. I got the inspiration for it from a picture of a necklace I saw on tumbler.
Don't be scared to try it because it has so many steps it is really simple to make and you can change the beads to what ever color you like. You can also make a pattern with the beads. Also you don't have to use chain you can just stop at step six and string beads on and add clasps.
Oh and I don't know exactly how long this took.
