Knotted chain necklace

Back to necklaces with this post. This was a take on the Givenchy necklace that was a hit a season or two back. Madonna stepped out in a similar necklace. I bought quite a lot of  fine chain.

I laid it out and untwisted it so it lay nice and flat. I checked the length I wanted the chain to be with some string and took that exact measurement and made an O shape with it on a flat surface.

I then laid out the chain to fit the O shape and layered the chain over and over till it was used up. Any leftover bits that don’t quite fit into the shape can be cut off. I made a knot at the one side to hold the chain in shape. And that was it. The chain is so fine that the knot holds easily.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
