Circle Pendant Necklace

It is the last day of Craft Lightning! All week long, Angie from the Country Chic Cottage and I have been sharing fast crafts that can be made from start to finish in less than 15 minutes. We’ve invited our blogging buddies to join in as well – I’ll share their projects tonight… right now I’m going to share with you my Circle Pendant Necklace. I’ve been sharing simple jewelry tutorials all week long, with my 2 minute earrings, simple charm bracelet, Dragonfly earrings, and metal stamped pendant. These project each build on the next. Today’s necklace is super simple to make, though, and you can make it as a first jewelry project if you have never made your own jewelry before.

Simple Circle Necklace

To make this necklace you need:
Jewelry chain
Lobster clasp
Jump Rings

Put the bead on the head pin. Bend the head pin at a 90 degree angle, about 1/4″ away from the bead.
