|The Topshop Necklace|
Topshop jewelry is found everywhere; celebrities, fashion magazines and the like sport their designs. When I found this necklace on their site, I knew that this would be an easy tutorial to show you guys. It literally takes less than 10 minutes to make this necklace; why not fool everyone into thinking you bought the real thing?!
Plus, it’s getting close to Halloween. I thought the skull theme was very appropriate here!

Oh, and by the way, you can probably make this with everything you already have on hand!
Step :; Gather materials. Needed are a necklace chain (the Topshop necklace uses antique gold metals; I had a silver chain and charm on hand, so that’s what I used!), a large jump ring, a small jump ring, pliers, embroidery floss, a skull charm (you can get these basically anywhere online or at a hobby store), a fire-polished Czech glass bead (if you don’t have one, use a similar-colored cut glass bead), and a head pin.
Step 2: Thread the glass bead onto the head pin. Attach to chain, loop and close. Then, attach your skull charm to the chain (with a jump ring) and close the ring. Both charms should hang from the chain.
Step 3: Make the tassel. Cut about 7″ of three different colored embroidery flosses (I used my favorite colors, you don’t have to match the real Topshop colors if you don’t want!), thread all onto the large jump ring, and overhand knot to secure to the ring.
Step 4: Thread the large jump ring with tassel onto the chain, to the right of the skull. Trim your tassel to hang just below the jaw of the skull.
FINISHED. Told you it was easy, right!
Go out and fool everyone with your savvy jewelry-making skills!
