DIY Marbled Necklace | Darby Smart Kit

DIY Marbled NecklaceI am beyond excited to have gotten the opportunity to work as a designer for Darby Smart. This happened as opportunity knocked my door. My relative had a two week trip to US and like any crafter. I needed to hoard some materials for my current project ideas and the ones to come by in future. So I did shop and then I casually applied for a designer’s post and accepted was I.
Then I treated myself with more supplies, but there were some problems with the address and shipment. Believe me when I say, I must have exchanged some 30+ emails with the Darby Smart team and their support has completely blown me away. Kudos to their team!!

Now you may as well question my decision and say why even buy anything from another country, and not from a local shop. To that, I would reply all this time I have been getting supplies from various shops from far off localities. Sourcing supplies has been a big pain for me and I wouldn’t be wrong to claim that 70% of the time I am late to post because one or two items are missing so that I could go ahead with the project.
So rightfully I took full advantage of this opportunity and got lots of items at an affordable price. But I am sorry that only my US fans and readers can avail this kit if they wish to buy or shop craft items. I know I too want them to go international as soon as possible.

DIY Necklace from Earring


DIY Necklace from Earring 1Coming straight to the point, I didn’t like the look it give me whilst wearing this pair of earrings, but I saw a potential in it. My mind said that its future lied around my neck and so here I give it a quick fix to give myself a chain necklace which is pretty much the rage these days, so if you have something of that sort don’t throw it yet, simply upgrade it.

What you  need:

Firstly, you need to detach the earring. You need to make sure to open the lower links and not upper ones, as we will need the above.

Then break the open chain attachment in the first and second stone order, as you won’t need it(carefully twist it with your pliers to cause the least of the damage).

Thereon align your individual pieces as you wish. If you like you could add more sets of danglings to your chain to make it look more personal and interesting but I chose to keep it simple. Also, I would suggest that you mark the chain link to which you will attach  your jump rings using a non-permanent marker. Its very likely for one to forget their design order. Do you fancy mismatching? go ahead create your own trend !!

And here this is how it appearsDIY Necklace from Earring 4

Its best worn with a collar shirt. But it could also grace your bare neck as well.

White! yes i’m obsessed, wear it over a white for a pop out effect.
