I recently instagrammed a picture of my DIY'd Spike Drop Necklace and had a few people asking me how I made it. It's so simple so I thought I'd put together a quick tutorial to show you how you can make your own.
This time I'm putting together a bracelet - but the same rules apply for a necklace, just use a longer length of chain and more spikes!
What You Need
Silver Spikes - eBay
Silver 5mm Jump Rings - eBay
Silver Chunky Chain - eBay
Two Pairs of Pliers - Local DIY Shop
Start by laying out your design - you'll get an idea of how many spikes you want to use and how many jump rings you'll need. Choose the length of chain by measuring it around your wrist.
You need to open each jump ring with pliers - hook it through a loop on the chain - add a drop spike
and then close up the jump ring again.
I spaced out the spikes with two links in between each one. But you can use less or more.
Attach a clasp closure using the same method of opening and closing the jump rings.
I took this clasp from an old necklace I never wear any more.
And your bracelet is finished! Try it on for size. You can always remove or add links if needed.
