Retro Chic Eclectic Necklace

Retro Chic Eclectic Necklace

This jewelry making projects shows you how to make an 80's eclectic necklace that uses odds and ends you may find in your drawer as well as store bought earrings.

What you need

Retro Chic Plastic Earrings
Metal butterfly
Glass crystals or plastic drops
Any other odds and ends
jump rings
Large 1/2 inch ring


To begin with you will need to remove the earring loops from any earrings, you can do this by simply undoing the loops with some pliers.

Add a new jump ring to each earring and also to any other items you wish to hang off the necklace.

These items have been attached to the 1/2 inch metal ring to create the pendant, you could recycle an old keychain or even some hardware supplies for the ring.

Add as little or as much as you want till you create something inspiring and something that is sure to be a conversation piece.
