DIY Multi Chain and Pendant Necklace

To go along with the jewelry tray liners from my last post, I decided to post a necklace tutorial. I started initially made a black and silver one with a round black pendant, but I fell in love with it so much that I made two other ones. My favorite one is the peacock one because I've recently been going through a peacock stage where I'm in love with them and those gorgeous feathers. I love these necklaces because you can make them as dressy or as casual as you want depending on the pendant. 

I did list the Tie Pendant Necklace and the Round Black Pendant Necklace on my Etsy shop if you are interested in purchasing it.

DIY Black Jewelry Tray Liners

Over the weekend Sean went out and bought not only Madden 13, but also Grand Theft Auto for his PlayStation. Not only have I completely lost him to 3 fantasy football leagues, but now I've lost him to 2 video games that he absolutely loves. Since he's been either playing games or looking up player news, I've been keeping myself busy by making more pieces of jewelry.

Having to take jewelry back and forth from places, I needed a way to take them around without destroying them because trust me keeping them disorganized in a box and having that box fall broke all of my necklaces and bracelets way too many times. I also didn't want to spend a ton of money on a jewelry tray and then have to spend more money on the liners every time I needed more. I decided to use a Louis Vuitton box that I've have laying around for years (without actually ever owning a Louis Vuitton purse) and create my own Jewelry Tray and Liners. It took me a couple hours start to finish. The best part was that it didn't cost me an arm and a leg because the only thing I had to pay for was the fabric and batting. I got over 10 liners for my box, but it all really depends on the length and width of your box. Don't have jewelry or need new ones to wear, check out how to make your own like my Black Natural Stone with Chain NecklaceYellow Floral NecklaceFloral Pearl Necklace or a Chain and Pearl Necklace.
