Nothing says “Halloween is near” like a good old-fashioned skull. This necklace is something you can wear to work but it’s also something you can use for a costume (I’m thinking Borgia period court ladies, for example). More than that, it’s something you can totally separate from any upcoming holiday and just make for yourself, by yourself. The necklace has the subtlety of a collar, but up close it becomes edgy, with thick chain, black beads, and the skull central piece. In short, it’s versatile and cool, and totally easy to make.

What you need:

  • 12 beads
  • 12 eye pins
  • 5 jump rings
  • chain
  • central piece (skull or another charm)
  • clasp

Instructions:

Divide your beads into two groups (6 and 6) and pass an eye pin through each one. Link the first group of six beads together, then do the same for the second group.

Follow the pattern above to assemble the necklace. Measure equal pieces of chain to the left and right, place the central piece in the middle, and connect everything using jump rings. Make sure it’s symmetrical, and decide your perfect length before attaching the closure system.
