Spider senses here with this semi-spooky Halloween-inspired look – the undercut being maybe my most favorite yet (thanks Mom)…. Flouncy sleeves, witchy heels and, of course, DIY jewels make up this look. If there’s one technique that I always go back to, it’s chainmaille. Not so much the GOT medieval-style chest armor, but a slightly more wearable version of the trade….to add that perfectly edgy touch to any piece. My necklace below is super easy to copy – especially if you already are familiar with chainmaille. I started with simple 2×2 strand lengths, keeping the longest in the middle and then adding smaller sized lengths in a mirror pattern to create a “V” shape. Connect the links (one link apart) horizontally at the very top of each strand. Work downwards, repeating the connections, but leave some links dangling at the very end – this keeps a looser chainmaille, which acts almost like fringe. Or a metal web, if we’re sticking with the spider theme…. Add any kind of crystal drops or charms at the end of these links. To finish, attach a 15″ or 16″ thick cable chain to the top of the chainmaille pattern, turning it into a necklace. Try it out in all different colors!
