  • How to make a charm necklace. Sugar Skull Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather together your supplies. You'll need some skull beads, which you can either buy or make out of clay (check out my other how-to). To accompany, you'll need a headpin, two small pearl beads and one glass bead to go with each skull.

    Repeat for your remaining beads. Now here's a little trick. I'm allergic to chain that's not silver, so I only used a small amount of metal chain for my necklace but attached a jump ring and a clap to either side of the chain.

    I can then attach this on to a longer silver chain. It's a great way to save money, if you're allergic to cheaper metals like me, or to change the length of your necklace easily.
