diy pendant bird necklace

We had a fantastic Easter break, but I’m excited to be back with a new DIY and my first jewellery DIY to boot. I am not the biggest jewellery wearer. I can’t be bothered planning my outfit most days, let alone planning my jewellery, but being at home in very stylish Melbourne has been the motivation I need to up my fashion game.

I adore pendant necklaces and this design is a copy of something that I saw online a couple of weeks ago – the only difference is this DIY costs about €8, while that necklace cost upwards of €30.

YOU’LL NEED:

fishing wire
both big and small natural wooden beads
pendant of your choice
tassel

DIYs don’t get any easier or personalised than this. Pick a colour scheme you love and a pendant that works and go with it. I had this bird pendant lying around, so I used it. You can make the necklace as long as you like. I like my necklaces long and this one hits my breast bone.

Start by stringing the pendant onto the fishing wire.

Add your beads on either side using the pattern 3 small beads, one big bead. Repeat until you reach the top of your fishing wire, leaving enough to tie the necklace together.

Secure your tassel to the pendant with some extra fishing wire.

For something so simple, I can’t believe how many compliments I’ve received over this past weekend.
