How to make a chain link necklace | DIY

Chunky chain necklaces are very popular this season. Those necklaces look very classy and match almost any outfit. And one more thing - if you have an old chain belt or an old bag with chain handle you can make the necklace yourself!


It all started when I was sorting through my wardrobe. I've found this old belt and was about to throw it away. And then a thought came to my mind that maybe I can use that chain again. That's when I've decided to make a necklace.


I've detached a chain from the belt and checked the size - it appeared perfect for my neck so I didn't have to make it shorter. Then I looked around my room and found a trinket with a clasp of exact size I needed. Using scissors I've opened the chain, joined both the clasp and the chain and with pliers closed the loop. And that's it! Just that simple and no need to pay extra money to get stylish necklace!



Here's the result:


I think it looks very nice! And here's some pictures of celebs with statement chain necklaces for you to get the idea!




Happy Friday to you!
