The Savvy Girls Guide 
To Making Your Own Necklace

I am one of the least crafty people you can find, so when I wanted to do a DIY accessory post, I knew I had to get the expertise and advice of the creative and kind Nadia van der Mescht from Cupcake Couture. Nadia is a South African based arts and crafts designer, specializing in exclusive wedding accessories, exquisite vintage-inspired corsages and stationery. She creates one of a kind pieces according to your personal taste and wedding day theme. Here Nadia shows us how easy it is to make a beautiful and trendy lace necklace. 

Step 1 & 2
Step 1:
Gather what you will need:
A piece of lace – you can find some at a haberdashery or even search for a vintage piece in your grannies sewing box.
A small, sharp pair of scissors
Small jump rings:  available from most craft or bead shops
Lobster clasp

Step 2
Put the jump rings onto the ends of the chain using the pliers.

Step 3 & 4

Step 3Make a small hole in the lace.  Make it slightly away from the edge so that the jump ring doesn’t rip through.

Step 4
Thread the jump ring with the chain attached through the lace.  Do the same on both sides.

 Step 4 & 5

Step 5
Pull the chain to a peak at the centre this will allow you to find the middle easily.  Bend open a link and add the lobster clasp and jump ring.

Step 6:
This shows how it should look once done.

And Voila!

All done! An easy DIY with a pretty result

Special thanks to Nadia for her lending her time and skills to this guest post. 
I hope it will inspire you to create your own unique neckpiece.
