It’s almost the weekend, and I’m back with another easy tutorial for some quirky jewelry. This matryoshka doll necklace is simple to make and sure to add some fun to any outfit you wear it with.
You Will Need:
- Matryoshka dolls beads in black and white*
- One accent bead in bright colors*
- Ball chain*
- Silver plated wire, 24 gauge
- 9 mm jump rings
- Scissors or wire cutter
Step One: Cut a piece of wire about 8 inches long. Slide a jump ring to the middle of the wire and fold the wire in half. Then run the wire through the center of the white matryoshka doll bead, and add one colored bead below it.
Step Two: Wrap the ends of the wire around your pliers to create a small loop.
Step Three: Flatten the loop against the base of the bead, then wrap a few times with the long ends of the wire. Then snip excess wire and tuck in the ends.
Step Four: Repeat steps 1-3 using only the black matryoshka doll bead.
Step Five: Add one extra jump ring to the top of the white matryoshka doll and three extra jump rings to the top of the black. Then cut your ball chain to the desired length (mine is 28 inches), add a closure (you can easily buy one online by googling “ball chain closure”) and that’s it. Necklace finished!
Is this a type of necklace that you would wear? Or do you stick to more simple, classic jewelry? I hope you have a great weekend!
