Turquoise Love

My favorite jewelry is anything turquoise!

My friend showed me this necklace she was lusting after, in my favorite color, and I thought "I can make that!"

Sooo I did. I made two, one for me and one for her.

Here is a really quick tutorial!

2 jump hooks
lobster claw

So here is how I did it!

I got the chain at the length i wanted.
Strung the wire double through one side of the chain.
Beaded the chain.
Wrapped the remaining wire through the other side of the chain and wond it closed.
I then found the middle of the chain and cut it.
I attached a loop on one end and the claw on the other.

This is probably the easiest necklace I have ever made and I am in love! Easy statement piece!

What do you think? Have you gotten crafty off an inspiration photo lately?

Ps. Anyone following the house story we lost the bid :( so if I go MIA in the future it is due to the stress of house hunting!! but really I can't wait to post pics and home renovation progress!!
