I've missed the Pretty Palettes Challenge for the last few months! I loved the images, bought the beads and just couldn't seem to get my act together. Yesterday, I burned a little midnight oil to get this one done and posted here today. It's definitely of the quick and easy variety, but sometimes you just need something to complete an outfit or give as a last-minute gift. So, I thought: "why not?"
The Rule of Odds is one of my go-to starting points for jewelry design. When in doubt, make it 3, 5 or 7. This applies in all kinds of jewelry situations, from number of beads on an eye pin or in a unit, to number of strands in a multiple strand design to number of dangles on an earring.
This layered necklace design is simple and super quick to make. Each eye pin has an odd-numbered set of like beads with a basic loop at the end to connect to the chain. Use jump rings to attach a clasp to each necklace so you can wear them separately or fasten all three chains to a single clasp for an almost effortless layered look. (This has the added benefit of preventing the chains from shifting around.)
