DIY | gem nacklace

The last time I plundered my mom's craft cupboard seems like years ago, but here it is, the long expected DIY: 

Ever since Carrie got that beautiful gem necklace from her 'Russian' Alexandr in the last episode of Sex & The City, I was completely wowed by the beauty of it. The plan of making one started to fade away with the girls, but when I saw a picture of Doutzen Kroes sporting an elegant gem necklace of her own I realised it was now or never, so I cut up an old necklace and started tinkering with some 'gems'. It was even easier than I expected - I'm a lazy DIY'er, you should know - and now it is mine! I can imagine wearing it with tons of other necklaces or sophisticated on its own. 

You can easily craft a necklace yourselves by following the instructions below or be even lazier than I am and buy one right here.
Let me know if you make one!

Left to right: You'll need a chain necklace you don't wear anymore, semi-gemstones, thin wire in the colour of your necklace, plier and scissors | Put your gems on a short piece of wire | Curl around the edges  loosely with the plier | Cut away the middle part of your necklace and watch the length carefully, this is where you'll put the gems. Put the wired up gems in the middle of your necklace by attaching the curled edges of the wire to the chain necklace. Make sure you secure all sides. All done!
